Our child-friendly dental care services

We know you want the very best for your child. One way you can grant this wish to your children is by prioritizing their oral health. Like adults, children cherish a beautiful, healthy-looking smile. The services below help parents/guardians nurture their children’s smiles.

  • Regular dental check-ups: Your child should visit a dentist within six months after the first tooth grows but not later than their first birthday. From there, your child should visit a dentist every six months. Routine dental exams allow us to monitor your child’s oral growth and development. Moreover, regular dental exams help detect and treat dental issues that may have passed your notice at home. 
  • Dental cleanings: Although you encourage your child to clean their teeth daily, remember they’re still learning to brush and floss properly. As you’d expect, their oral hygiene may not be thorough, allowing plaque and tartar to accumulate in the mouth. We offer gentle dental cleanings to help your little one achieve a beautiful, plaque-free smile. 
  • Dental sealants: We help your little one protect decay-prone teeth with dental sealants. A dental or fissure sealant is a plastic coating that creates a barrier between your teeth and the external environment. Provided your child observes optimal dental care, dental sealants effectively prevent dental decay.
  • Periodontal care: Our services include prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, ensuring that your child maintains optimal gum health.

Empowering your child to take control of their oral health is our top priority. That’s why we are focused on teaching your child proper ways to maintain their smile independently. However, we educate your child without overwhelming them with dental jargon. We use age-appropriate language to ensure your child clearly understands the necessary steps for optimal dental hygiene.
