We Love Kids, and They Love Us!
We know how to put children of all ages at ease so they can have fun
in the dentist’s office! You’ll love seeing your child receive the
latest advancements in children’s dentistry, which our team delivers
with caring, thoughtfulness, and compassion. Proper dental habits
with children mean they can keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime,
and that’s an important goal in our childhood education. We look
forward to treating your children ages 8 and above and watching them
grow year after year.
Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is Like
The main goal in children’s dentistry is instilling good habits
early. This is essential for a lifetime of good oral health. It’s
also important to provide a comfortable, fun environment so they
want to keep coming back.
Children are not able to brush well on their own. Because of this,
it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily
dental care. This ensures both thorough cleaning and the development
of proper dental habits. Little kids tend to eat more often during
the day (grazing). This results in a prolonged exposure to acid
(every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.
A tooth that isn’t completely clean will also be exposed to acid
when food and juice contact it. This acid can be responsible for
speeding up the development of cavities. The good news is that
identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a
fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce
the risk of cavities.
Healthy smiles for your entire
family! Give us a call today at (941) 359-2151 to schedule your
