Our valuable preventive services include oral hygiene education, professional dental cleanings with in-office topical fluoride applicaiton, prescription of home fluoride (topical and systemic) as needed, space maintainers, and sealants.
We take time with each child, designing a specific home oral health care program based on individual assessment. We provide age-appropriate cleaning aids and fun flavors of floss and toothpaste. We dispense ‘Fire Fly’ toothbrushes, the newest craze in children’s dental care. These brushes have a timed, flashing light handle that allows your child to recognize the time it takes to brush well.
FREE Infant Oral Health Appointments
To emphasize our strong commitment to prevention of dental disease in children, babies from 0 to 18 months and their parents are introduced to our practice with a complimentary cleaning and examination. This appointment is designed to be educational and enjoyable, focusing on the development of healthy habits.
State-of-the-art equipment and techiques are standard here at Dentistry for Children. We have ultra quiet drills and virtually painless injection techniques to make children comfortable in the dental chair. We are skilled in the classic techniques of restorative dentistry, and we are front runners in the newest and best cosmetic treatments.
Comfortable, anxiety-free treatment is always our goal at Dentistry for Children. To make this possible we offer a variety of treatment environments and child management techniques. We have developed a unique language and approach to introduce children to dentistry. Drills are “electric toothbrushes” and shots are never seen or mentioned. Laughing gas (Nitrous Oxide) is used to ease anxiety and facilitate positive experiences. We also offer out-patient anesthesia treatments utilizing the dental procedure center at The Children’s Hospital.
Often times there are benefits to early intervention of dental growth and development. We can recognize and address these needs with simple procedures such as expanders and retainers.
