We believe that children should have a pleasant experience when visiting the dentist. Our office was designed with children in mind. We have a dedicated staff that is passionate about helping children to achieve beautiful, healthy smiles.

Our dentist Dr. Rose, who has children of his own, is board-certified. He is able to communicate with children and make their dental visits as enjoyable and painless as possible.

 

What happens during a dental exam for kids?

We will examine the teeth and surrounding structures of your child during a dental exam. We will discuss with you and your child the possible treatment options if we find any decay or other issues. We want you to be fully informed about your child’s dental health, as well as comfortable with any treatment plans. Our team is available to answer any questions that you or your child might have during the exam.

Our goal is to prevent your child from developing cavities or other dental problems. This is why we focus on preventative dentistry. It’s never too early to learn how to maintain your smile. Children can have a healthy smile for life by taking preventive measures such as regular checkups, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants.

We will talk with you about how to care for your child’s teeth as part of your child’s dental exam. Together, we will create a personalized preventive plan that you and your child can follow. Many parents are surprised at the positive impact that simple changes in their child’s diet and oral hygiene can have on their child’s oral health.

How Many Times Should Your Child Get a Pediatric Dental Exam?

Pediatric dental exams should be scheduled at 6-monthly intervals for children. However, patients with particular oral conditions or those who are more susceptible to cavities will need more frequent visits (at 3-month intervals). Regular visits allow your child’s dentist to spot problems early on and treat them before they become more serious.

Research shows that children’s oral health and well-being can be improved by early diagnosis and treatment of dental problems. Regular dental care can help your child maintain a healthy smile.

Why should you schedule your child’s dental exam with a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?

There are many benefits to visiting a dentist who only treats children.

  • Pediatric dentists have been specially trained in child behavior management techniques. They are skilled at making children feel comfortable and have the patience that they need to help them through an appointment.
  • Anatomically, primary teeth are different from permanent teeth. Pediatric dentists have a lot of experience working with primary teeth. They can also address the particular concerns that they may have.
  • Children’s jaws and teeth are still developing. Pediatric dentists are able to analyze the impact of dental problems on the development and growth of their patient’s teeth and jaws.
  • Pediatric dentists are trained to diagnose and treat dental problems that aren’t usually seen in adults.
  • Pediatric dentist offices are often designed with children in mind, creating a relaxing and fun environment for children.
