Pediatric Dentistry

At Ponderosa Dental Group, we strive to make the dentist a rewarding, educational, and relaxing experience for all children. We understand that having a good relationship with the dentist and dental care early on in life can lead to a lifetime of healthy smiles, so we do everything we can to make your child comfortable with their visits. While we see most children at the age of three and up, if your younger child is having oral problems, we are happy to see them too!

Teaching Dental Health

One of the primary goals during pediatric dentistry is to educate children on the benefits of a healthy mouth and the proper way to care for their teeth. Our team is patient, caring and kind when it comes to educating your little one, often using show-and-tell techniques so they understand. When your kids understand why clean teeth are important, and realize the dentist is not a scary person or place, then all your future appointments will be much easier!

What We Teach Your Children

  • Proper brushing techniques
  • How to floss
  • Why their teeth are important
  • What the sights and sounds of a dental office mean

Keeping Your Kids Healthy

Even with baby teeth, children need to keep a healthy mouth. While their first set of teeth are expected to fall out, baby teeth can still get cavities, which can also spread infection if not treated. Proper at-home care and routine dental appointments can help make sure your child stays healthy as they age. We always check for proper oral development during each appointment and will give you detailed descriptions of our findings. By catching concerns early, we may be able to prevent problems from developing in the future.

    Our Stance on COVID-19

    We understand that this is an unprecedented time for many patients with the coronavirus still being an active concern. However, more than ever before, your oral health plays a crucial role in your overall health. The mouth is the gateway to the body, but when common oral infection and disease take hold, it impacts your immune system! This can make you more susceptible to becoming sick in the future. Your best defense is good oral health, and maintaining your regular dental appointments makes that possible. We are following all CDC guidelines to provide our patients and team with a healthy and safe environment to provide life changing dental care.
