Choosing the Right Pediatric Dentist for Your Child.
Choosing anyone to take care of your child can be stressful, but choosing a pediatric dentist for your child can be a hard and confusing process. We want to outline a few reasons why pediatric dentists are the absolute best choice to be your kids’ dental home.
Pediatric Dentists Make Office Visits Fun
We love hearing kids say they like coming to see us. Pediatric dental offices are geared towards kids. From the waiting room to the operatory, our office has a fun environment that is specifically designed for children. We know that a good experience as a child can shape your attitude about visiting the dentist. Your child’s comfort is one of our priorities. So we recommend reviewing our practice’s photos to see if they will enjoy their visit.
Pediatric dentists have had 2-3 years of special training to care of young children and adolescents with an emphasis on growth and development, both physically and psychologically. You can be comfortable knowing that we have had extensive training which has equipped us to care for your child. This training also includes patients with special healthcare needs. Please check what services we offer. Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions before scheduling an appointment. .
Stress-Free First Visit
Introducing children to a dentist can be a difficult task for any parent. Kids are usually very nervous to visit the doctor or dentist for the first time for a variety of reasons. Pediatric dentists know this, which is why we offer relaxed “meet and greets” for their first office visit. The first visit is a great way for you to speak with us about our practice, and it gives you a chance to gauge how your child responds to the new surroundings. Before you arrive, be sure to tell them that their first visit won’t involve any procedures or “chair time.” Remind them that you are there to meet some new people who want to help them get a healthy smile! If you fill out a few of these papers before your first visit, we can make it a efficient and seemless “meet and greet”.
From Toddler to Teen
Many dentists don’t want to see children until they reach pre-school age. Pediatric dentists care for children of all ages. We look forward to watching our patient’s grow from infants to young adults (no rush!). We help your child every step of the way to develop a healthy smile until they outgrow us and move on to a general dentist. We work with you to teach your kids good brushing habits, healthy diets and injury prevention that will keep their mouth clean and healthy for years to come.
Give Us a Call
We would love to speak with you about your child and their dental needs. Establishing a dental home early is very important, so we suggest that you bring your toddler in right after their first tooth emerges. We see children of all ages, so call us and schedule an office tour! We want to make visiting the dentist fun, so stop by and see why pediatric dentistry is the way to go for your children!
