At our practice, we enjoy caring for patients of all ages, including children. We believe a healthy, beautiful smile does not have an age limit. In order to prevent dental problems, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your child should see a dentist no later than their first birthday. Baby teeth are important because they help children speak clearly and chew naturally, and more importantly help form a path for adult teeth to erupt. We encourage you to bring your child our office at least every six months for a cleaning and dental exam. When appropriate, fluoride and sealants are typically recommended to help protect your child against cavities. We understand it is important to build a positive, trusting relationship between your child and the dentist at a young age, and we are dedicated to ensuring that your child feels comfortable and safe in our office. At Eastern Hills Dental, we are proud to provide dentistry to your whole family!
