Disease prevention starts early. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child’s first dental visit when their first tooth erupts or by age one.
There are many factors affecting the development of dental decay or disease, despite the best efforts of both parents and kids. After examining a child’s oral health, we thoroughly discuss treatment procedures that promote long-term dental health.
A laser is a device that emits light. It is sometimes used in surgery to remove and vaporize tissue. In dentistry, lasers have a number of uses. They can be used on soft tissues in the mouth to release tongue and lip ties. We accept referrals from lactation consultants, speech therapists, pediatricians and other health professionals.
Sedation can be a safe option to help children through their dental appointment and complete necessary dental treatment that potentially could not be completed otherwise. Dr. Katie and Dr. Stephanie will consult with parents and caregivers to discuss sedation options and to choose the most appropriate option for each child.
Comfort and safety are at the heart of our practice. We strive to ensure your child is comfortable and safe during their dental visit. We are compliant with standards set by OSHA and the CDC.
We are here to help! If you believe your child may have an oral infection or has just experienced oral trauma, after-hours assistance is only one call away.
