Our Pediatric Dentists
All of our pediatric dentists are dedicated to preparing children for a lifetime of healthy oral habits. They are pediatric specialists, which means they’ve received additional training in the specific problems commonly associated with a child’s developing oral needs. Our dentists work with pediatricians on a comprehensive plan that incorporates your child’s oral health into a total healthcare regime.
Children’s Dental Services
We provide comprehensive dental services starting as young as one year of age—the age at which professional dental care is recommended—and continuing throughout adolescence.
These services include:
Even as early as age one, tooth decay begins to build. It’s important for your child to receive pediatric checkups beginning around this time so the dentist can discuss a program of preventive home care. This includes brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing, and following a healthy diet.
At the age of three, children should begin regular cleanings at the dental office. This will help maintain the primary teeth in healthy condition. It also allows the pediatric dentist to detect potential problems with tooth or jaw alignment.
In accordance with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines, and for the protection of your children’s dental health, we recommend x-rays only when necessary. They may be required, however, to diagnose tooth decay, for orthodontic treatment, or abnormalities.
When your child needs urgent dental treatment, our doctors are ready to help. Quick action can save a tooth, treat infection, and reduce extensive dental treatment. Make sure you provide your pediatric dentist’s phone number to your child’s caretakers.
