Oral Care for Infants, Children & Teens

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends the parents establish a Dental Home for their children by age 1 to help them institute a lifetime of good oral health.

A dental home addresses anticipatory guidance, acute/​emergency care, comprehensive and preventive care. It is also where referral can be made to other dental specialists if needed. 

We can offer services that deal directly with your infant’s new teeth! This includes issues related to teething, infant tooth eruption, bottle decay and more.

We will also help you learn ways to help manage the growth and health of your child’s new teeth, including dietary and hygiene techniques specially considered for your little one!

As your child grows, his/​her dental needs change. With each re-care visit we like to discuss the present oral state, how to manage any issues that may benefit from modification or intervention, and provide anticipatory guidance to prepare you for issues that may surface as your child grows older such as need for orthodontia, prevention of oral trauma, transitioning into the permanent dentition, wisdom teeth removal, etc.
