Don’t let your child’s busy school schedule throw off their routine dental check-ups. Our office is open 5-6 days a week and typically open when most schools close in observance of some holidays.  Let us help maintain your child;s oral health when it’s convenient for you! 

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, The American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Dental Association all recommend establishing a “Dental Home” for your child by the age of 1.   A “Dental Home” is an ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient where oral health care is delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way.

During your child’s visit we will:

  1. Clinical examination of the child’s oral cavity and dentition
  2.  Perform a caries risk assessment
  3.  Review any pertinent medical history 
  4.  Age-appropriate toothbrushing prophylaxis
  5.  Oral hygiene and nutrional instruction
  6. Orthodontic assessment / anticipatory guidance,
  7.  Fluoride varnish treatment
  8. Address any concerns or questins regarding your child’s oral health
