A Focus on Patient Education
At Convivial Dental, we believe that a big part of children's dentistry involves teaching patients how to properly care for their teeth. Many children learn their most important oral hygiene habits by visiting our practice, including:
How to avoid tooth decay
But Convivial Dental does more than just teach children about proper oral care. Our team of dedicated dental professionals goes the extra mile to provide thorough treatment when our patients need it the most. To learn more about our children's dentistry services or to schedule an appointment, call us today.
At Convivial Dental, our primary focus is oral health maintenance. Ideally, the first dental visit must take place when the first tooth erupts, but no later than the first birthday. We believe in a team approach to oral health that involves the parents and our hygienists and dentists. Continuous care plays a critical role in maintaining oral health or finding problems early. We wish to clean your child’s teeth every 6 months if they do not have cavities.
We may request that the child’s continuous care (known as “cleanings”) is more frequent if cavities exist. We will strive to eliminate the root cause to the cavities, not merely to treat the result of dental caries. We need to partner with parents to achieve proper oral health via various strategies at home that include dietary analysis, risk reduction etc. We will explain the details when you visit our office.
If need for dental treatment exists (fillings, crowns, etc), we will strive to create an environment free of anxiety. We use multiple tools to reduce anxiety in children including techniques such as tell-show-do, or story telling. We offer the full range of pediatric dental services.
At Convivial Dental, we accept all major dental insurance plans. If you have no dental insurance ask our front desk for details on making pediatric care possible.
