Proper dental care is important for all ages.

Good dental health requires regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings, so small problems don’t become more serious and expensive to treat. It is recommended that you receive professional dental check-ups and cleaning at least 1-2 times per year.

Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime, and they can with proper care, which includes correct gum care.

How to avoid dental problems? Good daily dental practice, including:

  • Brush after meals with a toothbrush that has soft or medium bristles.
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride.
  • Use dental floss every day.
  • Eat fewer sweets, especially between meals.
  • Do not smoke or chew tobacco products.
  • Visit your dentist for regular check-ups.

Child First Visit Overview

Our Pediatric Specialists are trained to take care of your child’s teeth from their first tooth through all stages of their baby teeth and permanent teeth. Depending on the age, treatment preformed on the first visit can vary. For infants and toddlers, the doctor will give a thorough exam of your child’s mouth and in most cases x-rays will not be done. Older children will receive possible x-rays, a complete cleaning, and fluoride treatment. Parents are encouraged to speak to the doctors and staff and ask any questions.
