In our clinic, Children’s Dentistry is important to us. Our goal is to help our little patients develop and maintain great oral hygiene habits that they can carry with them into adulthood. We believe in prevention and pride ourselves in seeing our patients stay cavity free.
Our friendly team will not only help educate your children but also you the parent so that you can help maintain their good health and can recognize concerns earlier. We typically begin seeing our little patients as early as 2 yrs old to take them on a fun ride on the chair and to take a quick peek in their mouth. This initial visit is more about making them feel comfortable in the office and of course the great prize they get to pick afterwards.
We never charge for these little visits as the goal is really to make the little ones comfortable in a dental environment. We do recommend that by 3yrs of age (once all of the baby teeth are usually in) we start to see them for regular care visits. It is during these visits we can help them improve and instill good oral hygiene habits so we can prevent concerns down the road.
Although having straight adult teeth is still years away, there are things we can do preventatively with the baby teeth or as the adult teeth start coming in that can often times prevent the need for costly orthodontic treatment years later. Again, prevention is our moto. If we can easily and affordably make small orthodontic corrections along the way, we can help prevent more significant concerns down the road which will help cut down costs and/or treatment times for your child when they become a young adult.
