What is a Kid-Friendly Dentist?
A kid-friendly dentist is someone who is able to work well with children while still providing the dental care that they need. Children often have different fears and anxieties about going to the dentist than adults. It might be difficult to bring a child into the dentist when they are panicking. Because of this, our kid-friendly doctors are able to work with your children to make them feel comfortable and at-home.
Why does your child need a Kid-Friendly Dentist?
Children are often nervous about going to the dentist for routine care or more invasive procedures. If your child is beginning to express fear over going to the dentist, they will benefit greatly from a kid-friendly dental experience. The procedure is done at your own convenience and is specific to children. They will experience a fear-free and painless way to receive their dental care.
What makes your child a good candidate for a Kid-Friendly Dentist?
All children are good candidates for a kid-friendly dental experience. This is especially true for kids who have special needs and are especially difficult to get into the office to care for their teeth. It is important to first start bringing your child to the dentist when they begin to develop their first baby teeth. From there, they should come into the office twice a year for checkups and cleanings.
What happens during a normal visit to your local Kid-Friendly Dentist?
Your child will first come into the office and be seated for their cleaning and exam. The cleaning is done to remove hardened plaque and tartar from the teeth. The gums are checked for signs of gingivitis, which can be treated if the condition is found. Once the cleaning is complete, our doctors will come in and perform a comprehensive kid-friendly examination. The development of the teeth will be noted and they will be checked for signs of decay. A personalized treatment plan will be created to help your child achieve a full, beautiful smile.
