Dental care solutions
When working with children, the most important aspect of dental care is education. Educating children on the importance of oral health care allows them to better understand the purpose of brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits. Our dental hygienists teach children how to care for their smiles, and integrate the parents who may have questions or concerns about oral health for kids. We teach children the dangers of developing cavities and periodontal disease, and let them know the future consequences of poor oral health habits. Additionally, we provide cleanings, examinations, and x-rays every six months to monitor oral health and look for indications of future issues.

Children benefit from the following dental care services:
When should a child see the dentist?
As soon as the first tooth erupts, or if parents have concerns about dental development, they are encouraged to bring their child into the dental office for an evaluation. This should be by the first birthday. Afterwards, every six months, children should return for a recare appointment.
