At Legacy Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics we love kids, but the kids really love Legacy Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics! And why shouldn’t they?
When we opened Legacy Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics, our goal was to make quality dental care available to all children. By creating a kid-friendly office, hiring highly experienced doctors and offering a variety of payment options, we have set the standard for adorable smiles and happy families in our community.
Our practice is designed specifically for the needs of children. We have bright and cheery waiting areas and toys and prizes for our patients. The staff at Legacy make going to the dentist fun, and our parents value the easy scheduling and overall exceptional experience.
Why do we always talk about our Specialists?
You wouldn’t take your child to an adult physician, so why would you choose an adult dentist? Our doctors are specialists in their fields and have attended an additional two years of schooling to acquire the title of Pediatric Dentist or Orthodontist. They have extensive knowledge in all areas of oral growth and development.
We are accepting new patients! Call (678) 825-6913 or click here to make an appointment today. At Legacy Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics, we want to ensure your smile is bright and healthy for years to come.
For a chipped or broken tooth, rinse the mouth with warm water to keep the area clean. Put cold compresses on the face to reduce swelling. Call the dental office to schedule a visit as soon as possible. If you can find the broken tooth fragment, bring it with you to the dentist. Continue reading
When should my child first see a dentist? According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child should have its first dental check-up by age one. Although there may be a few teeth erupting, studies have shown that preventative measures to reduce decay, baby bottle rot and other developmental issues can be detected early and corrected. It’s never too early for an adorable smile! Continue reading
The ideal time as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry is at approximately one year of age. This is an ideal time for your Kennesaw pediatric dentist to carefully examine the development of your child’s mouth. Continue reading
The American Academy of Pediatrics has taken a strong position to promote the awareness of dental health as part of an overall health concern in children. In 2008, a National Summit on Children’s Oral Health looked into the various aspects of oral health in children in the United States. It was determined that half of all children in the United States will develop cavities, and some will experience severe disease. Doctors realized that more education is needed for parents, and the pediatric community needed to work more closely with dental professionals to improve the oral health of children.
New recommended guidelines for screenings now have children seeing a dentist as young as age one or when the first tooth erupts. Early intervention and detection of dental issues is the best way to ensure proper growth and development. Imparting proper hygiene at a young age can also lead to healthier teeth and gums. At Legacy Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics, our doctors are specialists at treating children and have additional training to deal with issues specific to developing mouths. We partner with many health care providers including pediatricians, family practitioners and hospitals to provide educational materials, referral channels and case consultations when needed.
