Pediatric Dentistry | Female

Care Philosophy

On the first visit, we welcome the parent in the treatment room for the initial exam. Your presence will be greatly enhanced if you assume the role of a silent observer. If more than one person is talking or directing, the child tends to become confused. Naturally we do not want this to happen. Everything that we intend to do will be explained and shown to you the parent and your child before we do it.

After examination and any x-rays have been evaluated, your child's oral health, proposed treatment plan and financial arrangements will be discussed with you. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Our office is committed to a policy of prevention. By seeing your child early in life, we can help prevent dental disease using risk assessments, oral hygiene instructions and diet counseling. Orthodontic problems may also be prevented or the severity lessened by early recognition and treatment.

    Routine Dental Visits

    Regular dental visits help your child to stay cavity-free. Teeth cleanings remove debris that builds up on the teeth, irritate the gums and cause decay. Fluoride treatments renew the fluoride content in the enamel, strengthening teeth and preventing cavities. Hygiene instructions improve your child's brushing and flossing, leading to cleaner teeth and healthier gums.

    Cavities and Restorative Visits

    We make every effort to make you and your child comfortable during these visits. We will explain each step of the process in "child friendly" language. You will be allowed to be with your child for support. We will use tooth colored restorations whenever possible and treatment options will always be reviewed.
