It is the passion of your dentist to provide dental care for the whole family. Adults and children have different expectations when coming to the dentist and your dentist is experienced to provide that. Adults are looking for high-quality dental care and to be informed by their dentist of the newest technology options available. Children are looking for comfort and respect.
Children should be brought into the dental office soon after their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday so they can build a relationship with the dentist and staff. This can be done before an exam is ever performed. Once it is time to have dental work done, that child will already be comfortable sitting in the dentist chair and have a trust for their dentist. The dental staff will also help your child develop good hygiene habits while they are young.
If all members of the family visit the same dentist, it can make it less intimidating.
The following services are offered as part of preventive dentistry:
- Professional cleanings (known officially as prophylaxis)
- Fluoride treatments
Call today to set up your child’s first meeting with your dentist and staff to start building a friendship. Having a good foundation of dental habits will start your child in the right direction for good dental hygiene. Bring in the whole family as we are dedicated to educating and building relationships to help every member achieve great dental habits.
