A healthy smile starts in childhood –and that's why our dentists and hygienists place a strong focus on caring, compassionate children's dentistry.
We believe that a big part of children’s dentistry involves teaching patients how to properly care for their teeth. Kids learn their most important oral hygiene habits, including brushing, flossing and how to avoid tooth decay, by visiting the dental office.
Even though baby teeth will eventually fall out, it is important to keep them in place until they naturally fall out on their own because they guide the eruption of the permanent teeth. Early loss of baby teeth can result in adult teeth not erupting into their correct position.
As parents ourselves, we understand the importance of a positive dental care experience as children embark on the road to life-long oral health. While children are not born with a fear of the dentist, they can sometimes fear the unknown. We believe that building a solid relationship early on will create the foundation for many years of healthy smiles.
