Top 3 Common Questions

When Should I Schedule My Child for His or Her First Dental Visit?

We follow the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, which says children should see a pediatric dentist by their first birthday or within six months after the first tooth has erupted.

Early visits help to ensure positive dental experiences and provide prevention-focused patient and parent education. It will also establish your child with a dental home and gives parents access to after hours dental related emergency care.

Are Baby Teeth Really That Important To My Child?

YES! “Baby” (primary) teeth may be small, but they’re very important. They are an aid in guiding permanent teeth into their proper positions.

Without a healthy set of baby teeth, your child will have trouble chewing and speaking clearly. That’s why caring for baby teeth and keeping them decay-free is so important.

Is a Pediatric Dentist Different Than a Family Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. Pediatric dentists have two to three years of specialty training following dental school and limit their practice to treating children.

Pediatric dentists provide primary and specialty oral care for children from infancy through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
