At Dental Care Kids we believe strongly that children are very precious. Our experienced staff of pediatric dentists, orthodontists and hygienists chose to make a career in pediatric dentistry out of a love for children and the desire to see their beautiful smiles every day.
Our office environment and practices are designed to make a trip to the dentist as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. A child with a positive impression of visits to the dental office is much more likely to receive the care he or she needs to maintain good dental health. At Dental Care Kids, we are building the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth.
In addition to our highly skilled staff of Pediatric specialists and our kid-friendly environment, Dental Care Kids employs the latest technology to provide the highest possible standard of care.
Low-Dose Digital X-rays are much safer for your child than traditional X-rays, emitting up to 75% less radiation. There’s no sacrifice in effectiveness, in fact the digital X-rays have the advantage of brightness and contrast manipulation, allowing our dentists to see your child’s teeth down to the finest detail.
Every parent hopes that their child will go through life without having many of the problems that they suffered with. That certainly includes cavities and unpleasant associations with the dentist. Call to make your appointment today to see why one little girl asked, “Mommy, is this really a dentist? It’s amazing!”
Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your child visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.
It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle”, “shot”, “pull”, “drill” or “hurt”. The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child.
There is much to be learned at the new patient visit, as well as follow up visits, for both the child and parent so we like the parents to come into the examination room with the child most of the time. Sometimes we will encourage younger siblings to come as well so they can see how well their big brother or sister does. If our pediatric doctors think it is in the child’s best interest for the parent to stay outside the examining room for some of the time, we ask your cooperation in advance.
