What can I expect?

Prior to any teeth appearing in the mouth, it's good to establish care with your pediatric dentist.  We provide intraoral tissue exams for infants that are having issues with body tightness, congestion, latching, and breast-feeding issues. We evaluate for tethered oral tissues and palate formation.

If a tongue or lip-tie is diagnosed, we can quickly alleviate the tissue with an in-office CO2 laser.

Teething usually begins at six months old.  This is a good time to start brushing and coming in for regular dental visits.  These visits allow children to familiarize themselves with the dental environment and the dentist evaluating their mouth.  Creating healthy habits early are the key to positive experiences and strong teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Curious about what to expect at your child's visit? Read through our most frequently asked questions here.

Pediatric dentistry is different because it focuses on children’s teeth. Children have developing jaw and teeth, which can impact the type of care they need. Unlike an adult dentist, a pediatric dentist focuses entirely on the child’s needs.

In general, children should see their dentist at least every six months. Sometimes, the child may need to have dental appointments every three months instead.

Children can continue to see a pediatric dentist for their entire childhood. We typically see children from birth to age 16.

The best thing you can do to prepare your child for the dentist is to get them used to brushing their teeth each day. You can talk to them about what to expect during the dental exam so that they are prepared. Once your child arrives at the dentist, our team knows how to put them at ease.
