A child’s smile is one of the most precious things you will ever receive. As a parent or guardian, you want to do everything you can to ensure your child’s smile stays healthy and bright. At Engineered Smiles, we will help you do just that with our pediatric dentistry. We will make sure you know what role you need to take in helping your child’s oral heath stay at its best.
Guidelines for optimal care of children’s teeth are set by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. One of their recommendations is that the first trip to the dentist occurs when the first toot erupts, or at least by the first birthday. Positive, early encounters with the dentist help acclimate your child to the dental setting and reduce fear. These early appointments also provide your dental team the opportunity to give you information and show you how to appropriately care for your child’s primary teeth.
We Love Your Kids!
At Engineered Smiles, our staff has the expertise and experience to help your child feel relaxed and secure during the visit. We know how to interact with kids to keep them calm and comfortable during their visit with us. These first visits lay the foundation for continued good oral health care in the future. Our warm, inviting atmosphere provides a setting in which your child will feel right at home, and will be less likely to develop anxiety or fear about visiting the dentist.
Children are inquisitive, and we welcome their questions about procedures, instruments and anything else they would like to ask about dentistry. We encourage questions and conversation about oral health. Our team enjoys teaching kids how to take care of their teeth and gums in language they can easily understand.
We strive to make our office a comfortable place to visit so we can help create a foundation for a lifetime commitment to good oral health. Parental instruction is also a big part of this endeavor. When you have questions about your child’s oral health or development of teeth, do not hesitate to ask.
