FORMS FOR NEW PATIENTS

Keep Up On Your Kids’ Dental Health

THE PARENT’S PARTNER – We consider ourselves the parent’s partners in creating pediatric oral health. Here are just some of the ways we’re on your side, too:

  • No-Fear Pediatric Dentistry: We provide safe, comfortable, and youth-centered treatment. Young people are treated with respect and we work very hard to minimize any fears or discomfort. We have youth-relevant reading materials and iPads with child-appropriate games in our reception area. Our staff, many of who are parents themselves, enjoy working with young people and know how to build relationships with young people. The result is you get a child who’s comfortable at the dentist, and we are rewarded with a happy young customer.
  • Education: We offer parents guidance on their child’s oral health from birth through their formative years. We are on top of the latest research and make our recommendations based on the latest findings.
  • Evaluation: We continually evaluate your children for proper growth and development of their teeth and facial structures. We are watching for problems with the airway, tongue posture, facial growth, jaw health, the effects of poor nutrition, and incorrect oral hygiene. We’ll keep parents informed should anything not look right.
  • Early Detection: Because of our ongoing evaluation, we catch problems early. One common example is that 85% of kids have facial structures that do not develop normally. If this is ignored, it can often require braces during the teenage years. Early diagnosis saves time, money, and a lot of distress for young people.
  • Prevention: In addition to ongoing evaluation and early detection, there are two additional ways to prevent the need for expensive and unnecessary treatments later in life. These include:
  • Fluoride: In dentistry today, topical fluoride has become the parent’s friend. It is the single best public health measure for the prevention of pediatric dental problems. We know this treatment alone will prevent tooth decay, save you money in the long run, and protect your child from unneeded visits to the dentist.
  • Sealants: Modern dental sealants function like very hard nail polish for teeth. They protect tooth enamel and chewing surfaces from decay. For some kids, sealants can provide an important layer of groove-filling protection.
  • Restoration: When tooth restoration is needed, All Care Dentistry is your office of choice. For fillings, in addition to our painless and computerized (Novocain) delivery system, we offer restoration work done with a pain-free air abrasion process for working on teeth. That means no drilling. We never use Mercury, and only offer state-of-the-art filling composites.
  • Alignment: If tooth realignment is needed, we offer a full-service approach to orthodontics for young people. Our focus on full mouth balance and structure always results in a more attractive look because the facial bones, muscles, jaw, and teeth are all in balance.

YOUR DENTAL HOME: We want All Care Dentistry to be where your whole family will call your dental home. Call us today for a free consult. We’d love to meet you and your children, introduce you to our staff, and answer all your questions. We know your children are your most prized possession. Let us support you in caring for them.

My parents, siblings, and I are lifelong patients of Dr. Dave and the team at All Care Dentistry. They have seen us all through our various dental needs, multiple orthodontia cases, and helped us achieve the healthy smiles that we all have today. Now that we are starting our own families, I look forward to bringing our children to All Care Dentistry for their first visits and continued care.

Pediatric Dental Care FAQ

How can I prepare my child for visiting the dentist?

We make dentistry positive for everyone, but sometimes your little ones may need a boost at home. ​​The best is to have your child come with a parent when the parent has a routine dental appt. witnessing a stress-free, pain-free appointment and having a pleasant stay watching a movie, getting a toy and a toothbrush. With this approach, the child will willingly be seated with simple suggestions. We let children control the appointment. When examining a child with care, patience, and understanding they do wonderfully. It is important to see early to avoid fear in the future.

When should I take my child to the dentist for their first check-up?

The first dental visit is recommended by 1 year old, or within 6 months of the first tooth coming in. Depending on your child’s age, the visit may include a full exam of the teeth, jaws, bite, gums, and oral tissues to check growth and development.

When will my baby start getting teeth?

Generally, the first baby teeth that appear are usually the lower front teeth and they usually begin erupting between the age of six and eight months. A good indicator that your baby’s teeth are coming in will be teething!

When should my child begin using toothpaste and how much should we use?

Toothpaste should be introduced when a child is two years of age. Before that, parents should clean the child’s teeth with water and a soft-bristled toothbrush. When toothpaste is used after age two, the child should be supervised to make sure they are using the right amount of toothpaste, just enough to create a foam.
