Dental Exams & Teeth Cleanings

We follow the guidelines of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. They recommend the child's first dental visit to be when the first tooth appears or by the child's first birthday. Our goal is to prepare your child with lifelong dental education that will help him or her avoid dental problems in the future.

Comprehensive Pediatric Exams

Using the latest technology, we offer comprehensive exams for infants, children, young adults, and people with special needs. Lasting about 45 minutes, our initial exams cover medical history, nutrition, eating habits and an appropriate dental plan which may include obtaining radiographs. For infants, we will inform you about proper oral care, which includes wiping the gums/ and or teeth after each feeding. For older children, we demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques and encourage at home parental supervision.
 

Dental Cleaning

 
We make dental cleanings for your kids and young adults a fun and positive experience. We offer a relaxed, child-friendly office that engages both the child and the parent during the process. Adults may accompany their child during the appointment to watch our process and help their child feel comfortable.

During your child's dental cleaning, we use a power brush to polish the teeth until they are sparkly. This is followed by a fluoride treatment in fun flavors like melon, caramel, cherry, and mint. The patients also get to choose the toothpaste we use during their cleaning. The ADA recommends these procedures be performed every six months to aid in the prevention of cavities.

Preventive Care

Education is key to great dental health. We make this the focus of every appointment, teaching our patients proper dental habits and we also offer a variety of brochures and educational resources.

When indicated, we prescribe fluoride supplements for our patients and also offer sealants to help protect their teeth. And finally, we provide a lot of encouragement so the children are engaged and excited to participate in and take control of their own dental health.
