Pediatric dentists have an extra two years of specialized training and are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems.
A comprehensive dental exam including x-rays is performed during the initial dental visit. Depending on your requirements a full range of options are available which are determined by the age of the patient, the degree of need, and your availability for treatments.
You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. If your child is old enough, they should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.
We make every effort to schedule appointments at your convenience when time is available. Preschool children are seen in the morning when they are fresh & well rested. School children with treatment are also seen in the morning when they are well rested and can tolerate the procedures better. Please remember dental appointments are an EXCUSED school absence.
