What Visits Here Are Like
Your children should start seeing a dentist at an early age—usually around their first birthday for a happy visit. Before bringing them in, you may want to consider looking at kid-friendly books and videos about dentistry. The idea is to have the office feel familiar and comfortable to them once they arrive. Once here, you’ll stay with your child throughout their visit. With reassuring doctors and their parents standing close by, your kids can relax. Even enjoy the experience! If you’re due for a checkup or cleaning, we’ll try to schedule it on the same day, for your convenience. As a family dental practice that sees patients of all ages, we can treat your family in fewer visits.
Good Dental Health Starts at Home
While regular office visits are critical, a lifetime of strong, healthy teeth begins during childhood. As a parent you have a tremendous power—and responsibility—to look after your children’s dental health. Regular brushing and flossing at our dentists’ earliest recommendation is one way. Make sure they get plenty of calcium in their diet to make their teeth strong. Limit sugary foods and drinks. Be sure to read labels, because you may be surprised what foods are high in sugar. These include many juices and snacks aimed at children. By following these steps, you can help keep your kids healthy and cavity-free!
