Why Should My Child See a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists specialize in caring for tiny teeth, just as a Pediatric doctor specializes in children's health. In addition to additional education, our Pediatric dentists are known for building fun, exciting appointments that children want to come back to. Lastly, Pediatric dentists can explain preventative care in simple and clear terms.

YOUR CHILD'S FIRST VISIT
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children see a Pediatric Dentist before their first birthday or when their first teeth come in. Dental problems can begin early and we know children need healthy teeth to speak and chew food!
Meet You and Your Child
The first step is to meet you and your child! We'll ask a couple of basic questions regarding your child's oral health and answer any questions you may have.
Exam and Cleaning
Depending how old your child is, exams usually involve looking around the gums, teeth, jaws, and bite for healthy growth and development. Your child's visit also includes a gentle cleaning to remove plaque, tartar, and stains.
Schedule Your Next Appointment
If your child's teeth are healthy, you'll schedule another visit in six months. If something was found, your dentist will provide recommendations and help you schedule a follow-up appointment.
