What is pediatric dentistry?

  • We offer all phases of dental care for children, including prevention, cleanings, fillings, orthodontics and crowns.
  • We encourage FREE HAPPY VISITS for young children. This creates trust and a positive dental experience.
  • The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see a dentist by his or her first birthday. The dentist will check for any cavities and for early development problems.
  • Make sure your children are getting enough fluoride. Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and helps to prevent cavities.
  • Encourage good eating habits. A balanced diet with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy products and meat will help make sure your child has healthy teeth.
  • Teach your child to brush by age 2. Make brushing a daily routine and keep it enjoyable.
  • Make dental visits positive. When a child turns 2 years old, start encouraging a positive attitude toward dental visits.
