Thank you for your interest in our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your child to Kids Dental Center. Our dental team uses every means to provide your child with the highest quality of dental treatment, and we will do so on a gentle, efficient, and knowledgeable manner. We are Certified Pediatric Dentists, we have combined over 30 years of experience.
Our mission at Kids Dental Center is prevention of dental disease and improving and maintaining optimum oral health of infants, children, teenagers and special needs.
We recognize the need for a more modern approach to caring for children and adolescents oral health. Instead of traditional practice of just drill and fill cavities, we believe in a proactive method centered around prevention and education.
We are proud to be one of the only pediatric dental offices to have an open door policy, we encourage parents to be with their children at all times. We believe your presence may actually help with your anxious child.
Good oral health practices should begin in infancy and continue throughout adult life. In your child's
early years, you must provide this care. Later you will need to instruct, monitor and motivate your child to help maintain good oral health habits. Attitudes and habits established at an early age are critical in maintaining good oral health throughout life.
Please remember that The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your childs first visit to be no later than one year of age, contrary to the old age of 3.
We are proud of our new addition, The New Teen Dental Center. This new modern state of the art is dedicated to teenagers. No more excuses for the teens not to go to the dentist!! We guarantee your teens would love it.

Below we have listed some suggestions to help prepare your childs visit to the dentist.
Let your child know that this visit to the dentist is a way of showing that he/she is growing up and that the care of the teeth is a joint responsibility between the child and the dental team.
not to scare your child or let them hear "horror" stories aboutthe dental office. Because of the establishment of many new dental techniques, pain should not be a part of the dental experience.
Discuss dentistry in a positive way. Several excellent children's books describe a visit to the dentist and can help introduce your child to the experience.
Answer questions your child may have honestly but not too specifically. Avoid using words like "
shot", "pull", "drill", or "hurt". If your child should ask questions that you would rather not answer, just tell them the doctor will answer them at the office.
Let your child know that you will be allowed in the treatment room if you choose. If you accompany your child, avoid repeating the dentist's orders. This distracts the child and prevents the dentist from communicating effectively with your child.
Kids Dental Center has these tips for parents and caregivers:
·Take your child to see the
dentist regularly, beginning by the child's first birthday.
· Put only water in a child's
naptime or bedtime bottle after one year of age to prevent baby bottle tooth decay.
·Start brushing the child's teeth with water as soon as the first tooth appears.
·Start flossing when two of the child's teeth begin to touch.
·Brush and floss your child's teeth daily until they can be taught to do this alone with supervision.
·Make certain your child gets the right amount of fluoride needed for decay-resistant teeth. Ask your dentist how this can be done. we recommend fluoride toothpaste after one and half years of age (just a touch).
·Ask yourdentist about dental sealants, a thin protective barrier that shields the chewing surface of back teeth against tooth decay.
·And make sure your children wear mouth guards when ever involved in any outside activity. Mouth guards could be purchased at any local sports store or contact us for a custom made set.
