Your Kids Will Look Forward to Dental Visits

More than 40 percent of kids will develop a cavity by their 11th birthday. That’s why we recommend scheduling your child’s first dental visit around their first birthday. During their visit, they will get to meet members of our team, try out our headphones, and watch cartoons on TV. Before they leave, they will get to pick something from our treasure chest to take home as well. But we’re also here to answer your questions about caring for your child’s smile at home.

Here are examples of children’s dentistry services that will help your child:

  • Regular dental cleanings and exams are invaluable in preventing problems or treating any issues as early as possible.
  • Fluoride varnishes and dental sealants can reduce their risk of cavities.
  • As your kids get older, we can discuss orthodontic options if needed.
  • You also protect them against dental injuries with our custom-made athletic mouthguards.

Many people who have dental anxiety recall an incident from their childhood that contributed to their fear. We want to avoid that by giving your children reasons to enjoy coming to see us. Technology like The Wand® and air abrasion let us treat problems comfortably and painlessly. Your kids also can feel cozy with comfort items like blankets and pillows. If needed, we offer child-safe laughing gas as a sedation option.
