What Does Safe, Experienced Pediatric Dental Care Mean?
All children have their own unique dental needs. Baby (primary) teeth are anatomically different from adult (permanent) teeth. Baby teeth are shorter than adult teeth, and the strong protective outer shell called enamel is much thinner than adult teeth. Because of this a very small cavity can quickly turn into a trouble maker. Your child’s personality will play the biggest role in their initial attitude towards their first dental visit. The hesitant child can become the resistant, crying, upset child if they do not feel comfortable at the dentist. As a team of pediatric dental specialist, we are skilled and trained in techniques that will help the hesitant child be calm at the dentist in most instances. We don’t believe in sedation as a one-fix solution. We typically take other, more safe avenues, allowing us to develop a stronger relationship with your child, thus giving them a reason to comfortable return in the future because of a pleasant experience with people they and you can trust.
Our new office is state of the art and has been designed to provide high quality dentistry for children. But just as important, our staff is dedicated to fluid and caring steps which we take with your child to quickly and easily help them with their needs. There are many services that we offer to help with the care of your child’s oral health needs. Below is a comprehensive list. See the service drop down list for more details.
