Your baby’s first dental exam should be at approximately one year of age. At this time, I will examine the shape of your baby’s jaw and oral tissue. We will discuss nutrition and oral habits like thumb-sucking and pacifier use.
As a mother, I relate to children in a nurturing way, and they sense it. Children need healthy teeth for chewing, speaking clearly and appearance. We will show you how to brush your child’s teeth properly and begin to teach them the basics of dental health.
Our approach is child-centered and takes into consideration each child’s unique personality. I explain what I will be doing in terms that they can understand.
If your child has “crooked teeth,” their self-esteem often suffers. Straightening a teen's teeth will make them feel better about themselves. Cavities can pop up due to increased soda and sugar consumption, during the pre-teen and teenage years making continued dental care very important.
