We Love Kids!
According to The American Dental Association, a child’s first dental exam should happen soon after the first baby tooth comes in or by the time the child turns one year old. Even though baby’s first teeth are temporary, getting an early start on excellent dental hygiene practices will help your child enjoy good oral health for life.
At KB Smiles, we partner with you in the care and development of your child’s teeth from infancy to adolescence. Fostering trust with children at an early age while helping them develop excellent at-home oral-hygiene habits is our primary goal. Getting to know each child on an individual basis is extremely important and allows us to provide the best personalized dental care. We do this through sharing a wealth of educational information with you while performing regular checkups, cleanings, and treatments in our comfortable and fun dental environment. We speak in terms children can understand in order to help kids feel good about taking care of their teeth at home.
We take extra care and attention with our pediatric patients. We know childhood dental experiences can leave impressions that will last a lifetime, and we take this responsibility very seriously. We take the time needed to build excitement about dental visits, and we show children how important it is to keep those “cavity bugs” away. We make dental appointments fun so kids can’t wait to come back! We look forward to seeing your child’s faces light up with a big smile in our office!
Starting regular checkups early in your child’s life allow us to catch decay and signs of gum disease before they become serious, so we can correct any underlying hygiene issues and prevent problems. As your child grows, we can provide treatments such as sealants to protect new, vulnerable permanent teeth from decay as well as mouth-guards to protect the teeth of your budding sports enthusiast. We can also identify and address potential orthodontic problems before they evolve into bigger money- and time-consuming issues.
We have several amenities for kids:
- Play Area in Lobby
- TV & Cartoons in Treatment Rooms
- Pillows & Blankets
- Surprise Toys
- Nitrous Oxide
Along with our kid-friendly office amenities, KB Smiles staff is kid-friendly, happy, and positive. We do our very best to help our pediatric dental patients also feel happy and positive!
