A child’s smile and laughter always manage to bring out the sunshine on even the darkest days. Keeping your child’s smile bright and healthy from an early age depends on establishing good oral hygiene habits. At Avalon Dental Group, we offer a child-friendly environment for families with small children. Our dental team is warm and friendly and knows how to help your child relax so their visit to the dentist can be enjoyable.
Introducing your child to the dentist early in life can help alleviate the fears and anxiety that often accompany visits to the dental office. We understand how fears and phobias about dentists can get started. Our child-friendly atmosphere is designed to feel safe and comfortable and help your little one relax. The friendly and gentle chairside manners of our dental team help kids stay calm and at ease.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child’s first visit to the dental office occurs by the first birthday or when the first tooth erupts. Learning how to care for those first primary teeth helps parents realize the importance of good oral hygiene at an early age, and kids can develop good habits early in life.
Pediatric dentistry helps keep your child’s teeth and gums healthy. Early detection of problems eliminates the need for more extensive dental work later. Prevention with regular checkups and cleanings will help keep your child from experiencing the pain of toothaches. It also helps with early intervention of developing problems, such as the possibility of misaligned teeth.
We Love Kids!
Avalon Dental Group welcomes children of all ages. We also accept kids six years of age and older who are referred to us by their pediatricians. Our approach with pediatric dentistry is to create an enjoyable experience for your child, so a trip to the dentist is something to look forward to with anticipation and not fear.
To help your child feel comfortable, we provide pillows and blankets that have proven to help kids feel secure. We also have toys and games and flat screen TVs in each room so your child can be entertained while undergoing dental care. The team at Avalon Dental Group is committed to providing your child with a positive experience in a friendly and nurturing environment.
We realize that some children have higher levels of anxiety when experiencing new situations. Sedation is provided for children who have a difficult time relaxing while undergoing dental care. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, has been used for over a century to help calm patients who may experience more anxiety than normal.
Your child’s comfort is a priority for the dental team at Avalon Dental Group. If you are looking for a warm and welcoming environment where your child can experience compassionate and friendly dental care, look no further than Avalon Dental Group.
