The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises that parents establish a dental home for their child before their first tooth emerges, or around the ages of 8 – 10 months. But, what is a dental home, and why is it important? Why can’t your child just visit a regular dentist? 

Extensive Pediatric Training 

Pediatric dentists have had 2-3 years of special training to care for young children and adolescents. Check out the “about us” section of our website to learn more about our dentist’s degrees, professional associations and affiliations, as well as distinguishes and honors. You can rest easy knowing that we have had extensive training which has equipped us to care for your child.  

Knowledgeable Guidance 

Children’s teeth grow, and their smile changes over time. Pediatric dentists are experts at growing healthy smiles for children, and guiding parents by providing them with actionable oral health advice. No one smile is the same, and we understand this. Our office has helped guide thousands of families to oral health success, and we’ve treated smiles of all shapes and sizes. We understand that parents need the best information possible to help their children earn a healthy smile that grows with them. We are happy to teach parents about oral health care, and the methods needed to grow a wonderful, healthy smile.  

Early Diagnoses 

A Pediatric dentist understands the common ailments that afflict children, and how to combat them. Early childhood carries, gum disease, tooth decay and halitosis are all common in children, and require specific care and treatment from a pediatric dentist. Most of these ailments can be avoided with early diagnoses, and preventative treatment. Our dental office helps prepare parents with the knowledge and tactics they need to side-step common oral health issues, and maintain a healthy smile at home.  

Exclusive Care for Children 

Pediatric dentists care for children of all ages. From first tooth to adolescence, we help your child develop a healthy smile until they’re ready to move on to a general dentist. We work with you to teach your kids healthy brushing habits, inform them about the importance of flossing, and give them dietary tips that will keep their mouth clean for years to come.  

Does Your Family Have a Dental Home? 

A pediatric dentist is one of the most important care providers a child can have, and we would love for our office to be your dental home. We are trained to specifically care for children of all ages, and provide a relaxing office that helps comfort anxious children. Call our office today to setup a stress-free first visit for your child, and get ahead of any oral health issues before they become a more serious concern.
