We handle children of a younger age with special care to ensure a positive dental experience. We do not force anything on a child, especially if it’s their first time ever seeing a Dentist. On their first visit we will typically count teeth, polish their teeth and apply fluoride (cleaning with an exam). We will try to take x-rays, but only if we are able, and if we find anything that needs treatment we would usually address the issue ourselves. If a child is particularly apprehensive, then sometimes we just count teeth.
On rare occasions, if a child has extensive decay or is especially apprehensive or uncooperative, we will refer to a pediatric dentist. Our goal is to make every dental experience for your child the best it can be, whether we provide the services or not!
