What To Expect

We see children from age 0-adolescents in each of our locations, with their families. We particularly love to see little ones in our pediatric offices devoted to kids dentistry, specializing in child dental care and experience.

What to expect on your child's first dental visit?

Once you arrive at our office with your child you will meet the dentist and the dental staff. The dentist should test for decay and alignment during your child's exam. The dentist can also ask you to sit in the chair and keep your child, depending on your child's age.

He may check for any possible issues with your child's gums, jaw and overall mouth health. The dentist or hygienist can also clean the teeth and assess the need for an application of fluoride and sealant. The dentist will assess the developmental conditions and will answer any questions you may have.

What to expect from your child's dental developments as they grow older?


Infant years:

It's time to see the dentist after the first tooth erupts. This isn't going to take that long. You should hold your little one in your lap while the dentist is testing their tooth (or teeth) and overall dental health.

Timing tip: arranging your visit after nap time and getting a snack would make your visit much happier

Toddler years:

After the first teeth come out, your child will see the dentist at least every six months. These years are all about making the dentist a nice, healthy place to visit because caring for the teeth is your child's second nature.

The dentist will add stuff to the routine of your child as they grow, such as toothbrushing (twice a day!) with non-fluoride toothpaste and flossing — with mom and dad's assistance.

At this stage, diet is very important. Gummy treats, including gummy vitamins and fruit chews, as well as starchy foods such as pretzels and potato chips stick to baby teeth and cause cavities — including in children. So make sure to snack on fresh fruits and vegetables and clean those choppers!

Preschool

Your child is expected to have a perfect, full baby teeth smile by now and we want to keep it that way. Your dentist would check your child's teeth and add new activities once a day to accommodate their increasing motor skills, such as flossing on their own.

Fixing a cavity

In a baby tooth, several children get cavities. A dentist should handle it as though it were a grown-up tooth, like grinding out the decay and filling the tooth again. It can be really disturbing for children and parents. Note, children look to their parents for a way to react to issues, so speak frankly with the child and remain upbeat.

Elementary

Soon, one of those little teeth will get wiggly and a giant, too-big-for-that-little mouth, grown-up tooth will take its place. When the new teeth join, the dentist must pay careful attention to balance with them. A good bite to chew, eat and talk is necessary. When there are signs of your child's teeth coming in crooked, your dentist can refer you to an orthodontist for a full assessment.

Middle school

All of your child's adult teeth should be in by middle school, except for their wisdom teeth, which usually do not arrive until later. Plaque and tartar are the targets for cleaning and your dentist may apply sealants to their molars to prevent decay. Your child is likely to become more and more independent too, and you probably won't help them brush their teeth like you did when they were five.

Make sure they retain the good habits that you helped them to create. Brushing twice a day, eating floss and eating fresh fruits and veggies are just as important now as ever.

High school

Your kid is almost all grown up. Yet to the dentist, they are not too grown up. Furthermore, teenage teeth may face a whole new set of hazards. Be sure that in sports they wear bite guards that have some risk of touch, particularly if they have braces.

What if my kid has dental anxiety?

It's fine. There are plenty of adults too. Speak to us prior to your visit about your child's fears. Our pediatric dentist has a knack of helping children enjoy their check-ups from exploring the office to playing a game together. Helping children know how to enjoy the dentist is one of our passions.

If you like your teeth and mouth do not go here. At one point they were good. As expansion happened and cost went up everywhere, I feel as if they forgot about the people sitting in the seats paying for the service. When you pay for a dental implant you expect that it stays in. That is why you spent money on it. Needless to say that it did not work and somehow did not work. They had to fix and replace the tooth. Then it happened again. At this point it was not worth them messing up again, but after seeing a new dentist they said it would be best that whoever messed it should fix it. Now back here, they said they had to remove the original implant and let the gum heal before putting in a new one. The pain experienced at this next visit lasted almost a week and no it was a horrible experience. The dentist who was working on my mouth started talking about lunch and just left me to be closed by someone else. No next steps and I had to call in to get a prescription for the pain. After it “healed” no more pain, I went back because something didn’t feel right. They told me there may be some infection and take some antibiotics. Now on the day before my visit I was surprised by a implant coming out on it own.

So to start off I'm not happy about going to the dentist due to high prices and insurance not always working when it needs to, however, when I came to this dentist office I was so relieved. Yes the prices are high (all dental places are) BUT they have payment plans and work with you to try and help you find the best pricing for you. I had an outrageous amount of work needed to be done and the front desk girl PAULETTE was an absolute angel with helping me out. Everyone was super nice and very efficient! I got my new patient consultation and a root canal done in the same day! Will definitely be coming back!
