The most significant contribution that dentists have in children’s oral health is the ability to make children comfortable during cleanings and procedures. Dental experiences early in life often remain with people into adulthood. We make cleanings and procedures painless and positive for our child patients.
It’s important to start bringing children to the dentist around age 3. The first hygiene visit is our Happy Visit, where your child meets the dental hygienist and the dentist. We also explore the chair, instruments and brushes. Our dental hygienists will teach the parent and child proper brush techniques, and the dentist will thoroughly examine the teeth with clinical and radiographic inspection.
