Children’s Dental Care at Bald Hills Dental

Little boy in dentist chairAt Bald Hills Dental, we welcome children who require dental care. From a young age, we recommend that you bring your child to see the dentist.

They can become familiar early on with our environment and staff members and won’t develop a fear of the dentist.

We’ll keep their visits fun and enjoyable so that they look forward to their appointments.

When a Child Should Start Seeing the Dentist

We recommend that your child have their first checkup shortly after their teeth begin to erupt. If they have an older sibling, they can come in for their brother or sister’s appointment so that they get used to coming in and can meet our friendly team.

What You Can Expect at Your Child’s Appointment

Your child’s checkup is much like that for an adult. We will seat them in the dental chair when they feel ready. Then, we will check each of their teeth, keeping the process fun and pleasant for them. Their teeth will be cleaned and polished. If needed, we may recommend having fissure sealants or do a fluoride treatment. Some children may have an issue that needs addressing, such as tooth decay that requires a cavity. If so, we will discuss this with a parent so that you can decide how you would like to proceed.
