Children's Dentistry in Jonesboro AR, Dr. Anthony Bartels, DDS

Many people don’t realize how important it is for your child to come in for their first dental appointment before the age of three. It is actually recommended that as soon as their first tooth comes in it is time to see the dentist. Starting their dental care early can be incredibly beneficial to their oral health now and the rest of their lives. Anthony Bartels, DDS can offer exemplary service to your entire family and make dental visits not only comfortable for your children but fun.

Importance of Children’s Dentistry

Early dental appointments will make children more comfortable. Dental anxiety is a major issue for many adults and often times could’ve been avoided by early visits to the dentist. Starting your child off with dental visits as soon as they hit their first birthday can make dental care seem more routine and get them more comfortable with the dentist. When they grow up going to the dentist regularly it will not only make them more comfortable with dental treatments, but more trusting of dentists in general.

Why Choose the Office of Anthony Bartels, DDS

Gentle care – Younger children can experience a lot of fear and anxiety when they go to the dentist for the first time which is why it is so important to choose a dentist that is gentle and patient. Especially since when children experience pain during their treatments, it can make them dread dental visits for the rest of their lives.

Experience – Providing dental care to children can be difficult since they often can’t sit still for five minutes, let alone half an hour. When a dentist has more experience with children, they know what to expect and won’t become overwhelmed. Dr. Bartels has years of experiencing providing dental care to entire families.

Fun – Simply making dental visits enjoyable can help your child actually look forward to their dental visits. By celebrating small victories in their oral hygiene, they will be more likely to develop better habits and continue to maintain their oral health well into adulthood.
