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.
