Pediatric dentists specialize in providing the best care to children from birth through adolescence.
For optimal tooth health, and therefore overall health, children should see a pediatric dentist six months after the emergence of the first tooth, or by the child’s first birthday. At Blue Oak Dental, we recognize the importance of creating an early and positive relationship between children and their dentists, in order to build positive lifelong dental habits. Furthermore, early oral examinations aid in the detection of early stage tooth decay or complications in tooth development.
Early detection of issues is essential for teaching children how to maintain proper oral health, while correcting damaging habits. Our pediatric dentists can also provide a program of preventative home care, which guides parents through the process of instructing their children in how to properly brush, floss, and use fluoride. Additionally, pediatric dentists can provide parents with information on cavity risks, diet counseling, injury prevention, growth and development, and finger, thumb, and pacifier habits. At Blue Oak Dental, we strive to provide the same exemplary degree of dental care you have always received from us to even the newest members of your family.
