According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should have their first visit to the dentist by their first birthday. During that appointment, the team will welcome you and your child into our office, making you both feel right at home. Dr. Brittany and Dr. Yoni will answer any questions you may have about your child’s dental health and work with you to develop a positive oral care routine that will set you and your family up for success. Dr. Yoni has years of experience treating children and has an enthusiastic and outgoing demeanor that will make your child’s first visit memorable and exciting. Dr. Brittany is a pediatric dentist specialist, which means she spent an additional two years in a residency focused only on treating kids and can help find the prevention and treatment strategies that will serve you best.
Green Leaf Dental also provides special needs dentistry to children and adults. If you'd like to make a special needs appointment, contact us today.
Bringing your child in for routine checkups while they are young is vital to their dental health. Common dental issues and dental anxiety are much less likely if your child is comfortable with the dentist at an early age and is used to visiting the office on a regular basis. Preventive measures such as sealants and fluoride can significantly lower your child's chance of getting cavities. Developing a relationship with your dentist will help set your child on a trajectory toward positive dental health that will last a lifetime.
Dental sealants are a tooth-colored, protective layer that is painted onto your child’s teeth to prevent decay and cavities. Sealants are meant to keep the sugars and acids that cause decay off the surface of teeth, especially the hard-to-clean back molars. If you’re interested in protecting your child’s dental health with sealants, give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
