Child Dentistry

Children’s Dentistry (Pediatrics)

Your child’s dental visit should be as pleasant as possible. Most dental organizations suggest a first visit by age two. By this time, your child will already have some of their primary teeth and this visit will help you learn more about your child’s oral health and how to best care for your child’s unique needs. We want you to feel comfortable and have your questions answered. We will make specific recommendations and show you how to best care for your child’s dental needs.

Depending on your specific situation the next visit will be scheduled to follow-up on any concerns and together with you, your dentist will decide on the best time to clean your child’s teeth. Fluoride recommendations will also be discussed. Most children are ready for regular hygiene visits about age four and often look forward to their visit, getting a new toothbrush and a ‘prize’.

One special step for preventing cavities from developing in the pits and fissures (top surfaces of your child’s teeth where the chewing takes place) is to seal them off with a special varnish called a pit and fissure sealant. The whole procedure is quick and painless.

As a friendly note, children as young as one year old have been known to get cavities. We don’t want this to happen to any child. Your child’s dental care matters to us.
