Starting a child off with the correct oral health habits is one of the most important steps that any parent can take in order for their kids to be as happy and healthy as possible. One’s oral health does not begin when the permanent teeth appear though, and that is why our dentist is proud to offer pediatric dentistry services for children as young as one year of age.
Most experts agree that a child should begin visiting the dentist when their first tooth erupts or by the time they reach the age of one. These first few visits are crucial as our pediatric dentistry specialist will be able to examine the baby teeth as well as the gums in order to detect any abnormalities that may affect their oral health for years to come. We will also work closely with the parents, instructing them on how to properly clean the teeth and gums until the child is able to do so themselves.
Another important period for the child will be their transition from baby teeth to permanent teeth. Due to the fact that the baby teeth will fall out, many parents do not schedule regular appointments for their children, but this could have a devastating effect on the appearance of their smile as well as their wellbeing. Many of the pediatric dentistry services that are carried out during this time, such as spacers and fluoride treatments, will have long-lasting results that the child will benefit from for the rest of their life.
We are also ready to provide children with some of the most important preventative and restorative treatments for teeth that are beginning to become misaligned. Options such as traditional metal braces can be used during this period to create a beautiful and straight smile for years to come.
Our dentist is ready to work with you and your family throughout the years, providing the most important dental treatments and services that will lead to an unparalleled smile. Give dentist a call today to schedule an appointment for you and your child.
I've been going here since 2010 and I love this dental office! It's very convenient to my residence and they offer an array of services! I'm currently under Invisalign treatment and they gave me a great price! I highly recommend them for any of your dental needs!

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
