We love caring for children and helping them enjoy healthy smiles and are pleased to provide pediatric dentistry to help you keep your child’s smile healthy. Our pediatric dentist and team are here to be a resource for you, providing tips and instruction for your child’s at-home care as well as their in-office treatments. We recommend that you bring your child to our office for their very first dental visit when their first tooth erupts or no later than their first birthday. After this first visit, we will meet with your child every six months to give them a routine dental exam and cleaning.

Pediatric dentistry involves a wide range of services to help your child stay healthy. One of the primary focuses of pediatric dentistry is preventive care, including in-office treatments such as cleanings, exams, sealants and fluoride, as well as at-home oral hygiene. Other treatments may include restorative dentistry, such as fillings or crowns, and orthodontic treatments.

Our pediatric dentist and team can help you care for your child by:

  • Helping you establish good oral hygiene habits for your child at home, including brushing, flossing and maintaining a balanced diet.
  • Understanding the importance of baby teeth and taking good care of these teeth as well as your child’s future permanent teeth.
  • Providing information about how to help your child avoid common dental problems, as well as which treatments are right for your child if they do develop cavities, gum disease or other problems.
  • Helping your child feel comfortable receiving dental treatment — this may include relaxation strategies as well as sedation options.

We understand that the dentist’s office can be scary for young children, and each member of our team will take care to make your child’s visit as comfortable as possible. We are dedicated to helping your child avoid feelings of anxiety and fear so that they can have a positive dental experience and develop a trusting relationship with us.

We also encourage you to contact us us at any time if you have questions or concerns about your child’s oral health. We are here to help you, and we will be happy to speak with you any time.
