Pediatric preventative care

Preventing tooth decay and jaw problems in children requires a sensitive and competent touch. A dentist who helps both young and older children to learn their dental care routine in a fun and friendly manner will stay with them a lifetime. And there are many things for a child to discover in their own mouth: teeth can be counted, the spaces between teeth can be compared, the tongue can be stuck out to be examined. Where's the best place in your child's mouth for crumbs to hide?

Such playful, child-centered methods ensure dental care, tooth brushing techniques, and cavity prevention will be both learned and practiced with pride at home. From age-appropriate toothbrush training and early diagnosis of cavities to protective sealing of broken or damaged teeth, publicly insured clients pay no additional cost for two preventative care visits per child per year.
