Are you tired of traveling across town to take your child to a different office for his or her dental treatment? At the office of Anthony Bartels, DDS, we welcome patients of all ages and look forward to treating your entire family.
Dr. Bartels has years of experience treating kids and looks forward to helping them set up a stable foundation of oral health for their future. Many of our team members are parents themselves and have a special knack for working with little ones.
Why Do Kids Have to Start So Young?
You might wonder how important it is for your child to visit our office at such a young age, even before they have all of their teeth. The truth is that dental problems can start early. It’s not uncommon for young children to experience gum disease and decay. When you bring them to our office while they are little, we can look for any conditions that require treatment.
Additionally, when we meet your little ones at a very young age, we can begin to acclimate them to the sights and sounds of the dental office. That way, they will feel comfortable instead of fearful about future treatment and appointments.
Your Child’s First Visit
Your toddler’s first visit will revolve around them. We will spend time helping them feel comfortable in the dental chair and even allow them to sit on your lap in the dental chair to help them relax. We can take them for a ride and count their teeth to help them feel comfortable about someone looking in their mouth. If your child cooperates, Dr. Bartels will perform an exam to see if your child’s development is on track.
Comprehensive Children’s Dentistry
Once your child is old enough and cooperates, it is time to implement routine dental exams and dental cleanings. We can monitor your youngster’s health and make sure that they don’t have any early signs of orthodontic conditions. We will also regularly monitor the health of their teeth and make sure that home care is on track. If improvements become necessary, we can go over different techniques with you to help your child do a good job of brushing and flossing.
We work closely with parents and communicate when we see a pattern of poor hygiene or decay. If treatment becomes necessary, we will treat your child as if he or she is our own. We will make sure they are completely comfortable and provide excellent care.
Prevention is important, and we can discuss preventative treatments such as fluoride or dental sealants to protect your child from decay.
