Our dentists offer comprehensive dental care to families and pediatric patients. Though not all dentists are comfortable or capable on working on patients of all ages, here, with a warm chair side manner we aim to put young children and adults at ease.
From birth to the age of 18 years old, pediatric dentistry focuses not only on proper oral hygiene habits, but on dental issues specific to children. Tooth decay is a chronic disease that is the most common among children – five times more common than asthma.
Bringing your child (even as early as 3 years old), allows them to become familiar with their “dental home,” as well as allow us to teach the following good habits:
- Correct Brushing and Flossing techniques
- Feeling comfortable in a dentist’s office
- Risks of tooth decay
- Common dental injuries
- Discuss finger/thumb sucking habits
- Check for proper growth and development of teeth
- Adequate daily fluoride exposure
We look forward to seeing you! To schedule an appointment for yourself or your child, call Fredericksburg Pediatric and Cosmetic Dentistry today!
