A clean Safe Practice for Kids!
One of our main goals as pediatric dentist is to have your child be excited about their dental visits so they look forward to visiting us again and again. How do we accomplish that? By providing a child-focused, nurturing atmosphere and having the patience to take the time needed to build a bond with your child. Not only does this enable us to address all of your parental concerns, but it allows us to build trust with your child so we can provide quality dental care.
Comprehensive Dental Care with Focus on PREVENTION
Our practice prides itself in emphasizing prevention. We accomplish this by providing a wide range of professional pediatric preventative dental care including diagnostic examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, risk assessments and parent/patient education. We want our parents to be the most well-informed parents out there and we enjoy educating our patients about proper oral hygiene and diet in hopes that they can help us prevent future problems. If your child is examined and determined to have dental decay, we also provide restorative dentistry, extractions, space maintenance and treatment of oral trauma. We will always discuss your child’s treatment options with you beforehand in full detail so you can make an informed decision about your child’s health.
Monitor Growth and Development Of the Jaw
Every examination includes an assessment of your child’s developing teeth and any spacing/crowding of the jaw. We can determine if teeth are erupting in proper positions, if teeth are genetically missing or if your child is unique and has extra teeth. This assessment can also determine if early braces, usually recommended around 8-10 years old, will be needed to prevent crowding and appearance issues as your child’s teeth grow. We strive to address problems early to not only prevent bigger problems in the future, but to get the best results possible.
We cater to each child’s unique and individual needs. Our staff has excellent training in behavior modification techniques and we’re highly skilled in managing a child’s short attention span and curiosity. Our exam rooms are equipped with ceiling mounted TVs to help create a fun distraction! If necessity arises, we may recommend the use of “laughing gas” or sedation techniques to complete dental treatment while allowing your child to fully relax. We are happy to discuss all available behaviour management techniques to ensure that your child grows up with a beautiful smile!
