As a family practice, we pride ourselves on being very child friendly. It is our vision to make the dental experience as positive as possible for all the children we see.
Children get their baby teeth at around six months of age. It is recommended that you bring in your baby for their first dental visit at six months after the first tooth erupts.
Children begin losing their first set of teeth at around 6 or 7 years old. These teeth are eventually replaced with permanent teeth. Children need to adopt proper dental care and oral hygiene techniques from a young age, to prevent tooth decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications.
We will provide you with effective tips on how to take care of your child's teeth at home. This usually includes the proper way to floss and brush your child's teeth and other information based on your child's age and the condition of their teeth.
The Gentle Dentist is dedicated to providing the best oral health care to your children. We are specially trained in treating a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of their childhood. Children are not always the most cooperative during dental exams, which is why we treat children with the utmost of patience and care, to make them feel comfortable and relaxed.
