Children should be examined as young as 2-3 years of age. Bringing your child with you to your dental appointment and allowing them to get comfortable in the environment is welcomed. We want to create a healthy relationship from the onset.
Children will receive Fluoride treatments at their cleanings as well as exams and x-rays. When the time comes, sealants will be suggested, a treatment that seals the deep grooves of the adult molars and lowers the frequency of cavities.
We are a mercury free office and with the conservative nature of today’s materials, we can treat problems early and minimally when possible. This will hopefully break the patterns of traditional dentistry that have led to the destruction we see in so many adults.
Of course, a toy will leave with every child.
