For kids and pre-teens.

The habits and impressions they form at this age will stay with them for life, so we make sure they develop the right ones. They’ll receive gentle, comfortable care, and they’ll learn how to care for their smile — not just in the way that they brush, but in terms of what they eat and how they play, too.

Pediatric dentistry basics

Common children’s dentistry questions.

You’ll want to begin looking for a kid-friendly dentist by the time your child’s first tooth appears or by the time their first birthday arrives— whichever happens first.

Yes, in most cases where a child feels anxious about visiting the dentist, sedation is a safe and effective option. While it doesn’t entirely put them to sleep, it makes the experience more relaxed and can help it feel like it passes by more quickly.

For most kids, a checkup at least once every 6 months is ideal. Since their teeth and jaws are still developing, it’s important to monitor them closely to make sure issues are addressed early and bad habits don’t take root.

We’ll do our best! In our experience, it’s usually about rebuilding trust and changing expectations — once your child realizes that dental visits can be gentle, they’ll gradually overcome their fear and accept it as part of their healthcare routine.

If they’re especially anxious, sedation can be an effective way to help them relax during their visits.
