Dental work is just as important for children as it is for adults. Your child should have their first dental appointment within 6 months of their first tooth appearing, or their first birthday (whichever comes first).
At Summerlyn Dental Care, we understand that it may take several visits for your child to be completely relaxed in our dental office, especially if he/she has had a negative experience in the past. Our entire dental team is compassionate and will take the time necessary to set your child at ease. Our office makes a special effort to use pleasant words to describe each treatment because we want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our office.
We are dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care for infants, toddlers, younger children and even teens - no matter their special needs. We will do this in a friendly, fun and safe environment.
The first visit will be short and very pleasant. We will focus on getting to know your child and giving you some basic information about dental care. One of our dentists will check your child's teeth for the overall health and placement to ensure no potential issues with the jaw or gums are imminent. In addition, we may do some teeth cleaning.
During this visit, our dental team will answer any and all questions you may have about children's dentistry and how to care for your child's teeth as they grow in. You will receive helpful tips about child dental care that you can refer to at home.
