The Toddlers to Teens Dental team knows that your child's visit to the dentist can be overwhelming for the family. Our staff can provide you with tools to help make visiting the dentist part of the routine.
Your child’s first visit is important for establishing expectations, understanding, and comfort with future treatment, and provides an opportunity to discuss preventive measures that may help your child avoid potential unnecessary problems and/or pain.
At Toddlers to Teens, we see many children with disabilities for their dental needs, and will tailor each visit to best suit your child’s needs.
A pediatric dentist is one who has undergone specialized training with focus on addressing the dental needs of children from infants to teenagers.
This additional training is usually completed over a 2-year period in a post-graduate program. Infants, pre-teens, and teenagers all require different approaches to deal with behavior, dental development, dietary issues, and problem prevention.
Your child should be seen by a dentist as soon as you see the first tooth appear in his or her mouth, and no later than his or her first birthday. Waiting until all the baby teeth have come in can often be too late for children that are at high risk for developing early childhood cavities.
