At Smiles Dental Care, we understand the needs of our younger patients and do everything in our power to ensure they have a positive experience while we provide the best dental care possible.
We try to make children’s visits as relaxing and fun as possible. Our experienced dental professionals encourage them to be interactive by showing them the dental instruments and letting them know exactly what they are looking for and why.
Achieving good oral health requires a lifelong commitment and young children will need your help and support. In our practice, we are dedicated to giving them the skills they need but when they are at home, they still need an adult’s supervision and help. Children under the age of seven do not have the dexterity and motor skills to reach all their teeth and to brush them effectively. As children are depending on their parents, we offer support and suggestions to all parents on how to make their child's oral hygiene routine more effective.
We focus on prevention and recommend that both you and your children come in for a dental checkup every six months. By frequently visiting the dentist, we can prevent decay and gum disease, and assess their dental development and the potential need for orthodontic treatment.
We are also champions of the 3+2 rule, which refers to children’s eating habits. We recommend that children stick to eating three meals per day and two snacks per day. This will give their mouths and saliva time to recuperate and protect their teeth. Eating more frequently than this will increase their risk of dental decay. Sugary foods and sweet drinks should be limited to only special occasions, to help protect their teeth from too much acid exposure.
Our team members will provide a relaxing and stress-free experience for you and your child. Our office is equipped with the most advanced technology and equipment to ensure that you achieve high-quality service and results. Together we can make sure that your child has the healthiest smile possible.
