Pediatric Dentist

Children’s DentistryChildren after dental exams, teeth cleaning and fluoride treatments

We offer preventive care and check-ups for children of all ages. Our friendly, gentle staff makes it easy for your child to enjoy comfortable:

Check-Ups

Regular check-ups are essential to identifying problems before they become complex care needs. We recommend a check-up every 6 months, beginning at age 1.

Dental Cleanings and Fluoride

During your child’s dental cleaning, we will review oral hygiene tips, nutritional choices and apply prescription-grade fluoride to promote healthy tooth formation that is resistant to decay.

Digital X-Rays

If your child is comfortable, we will take a series of digital x-rays to monitor tooth development, eruption patterns, and screen for cavities that aren’t visible during the exam.

Sealants

Protective dental sealants cover areas that are more susceptible to cavities, making it easier for your child to stay cavity-free. Sealants take only a few minutes to apply and can last for several years.

Fillings
