The goal of your child’s dental visit at Focus Dental Group is to make them feel at ease with the dentist. The first dental appointment should take place by 12 months of age, or within 6 months of the first tooth appearing. Depending on your child’s age, the appointment may include a comprehensive examination of the teeth, jaws, bite, gums, and oral tissues to assess growth and development.

If necessary, your youngster may be given a gentle cleaning. Polishing the teeth and eliminating plaque, tartar, and stains are all part of the procedure. The dentist may also demonstrate correct home cleaning techniques, including flossing, and advise you on the need for fluoride.

What Is a Child-Friendly Dentist?

Throughout adolescence, a child-friendly dentist focuses on delivering gentle and compassionate dental care to children. Our child-friendly dentists at Focus Dental Group understand the needs of young, vulnerable, primary (baby) teeth and how to best safeguard your child’s oral health as they grow and develop.

The Benefits of Seeing a Kid-Friendly Dentist

The Comfort of Your Child Is a Top Priority

Most children do not have a natural aversion to going to the dentist. The purpose of visiting a kid-friendly dentist is to ensure that your child gets the best experience possible. They work hard to put your child at ease and are happy to answer questions in plain language that will assist your child to understand each treatment. Furthermore, they make learning enjoyable for your child by teaching them and offering information on dental care that they can understand and apply at home.

Pediatric Dental Care Specialists

While all dentists attend dental school, pediatric dentists receive specialized training in children’s dentistry. They learn how to care for the oral health needs of infants, toddlers, children, and adolescents in particular.

They are especially skilled at dealing with the oral health needs of developing children due to the unique training they undergo. The treatments are always age-appropriate and carefully chosen to ensure that your child’s baby teeth are properly cared for and that adult teeth emerge properly. This understanding enables them to tailor their workplaces to the needs of youngsters.

When you bring your child to a kid-friendly dentist at Focus Dental Group, you are bringing them to specialists in the field of children’s oral health care who will work with your child to make the visit beneficial for everyone.
