Service - Pediatrics (children)

We love having little visitors and enjoy watching them grow and working with them to develop excellent habits for a lifetime of exceptional oral health.  

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that you bring in your child for their first examination at the "time of the eruption of the first tooth and no later than 12 months of age" because "early detection and management of oral conditions can improve a child's oral health, general health and well-being, and school readiness." 

At our office, we see kids as young as 6 months! During this first visit, we take a look at the dentition and growth, evaluate for cavities, as well as discuss oral hygiene and dietary factors to prevent tooth decay.  Continued visits to the dentist get the little ones used to someone other than Mom or Dad looking at their teeth so that dental visits are not traumatic or scary as they get older.  

Please browse our selection of topics below for additional information. Each link brings up a short article written by the American Dental Association with information you should know about your oral health.  The articles are designed to prompt discussion between patient and dentist regarding common problems and different treatment options. If you have further questions please feel free to contact our office at any time.
