Welcome to Children’s Dentistry online! We love being your child’s dental home, and we offer a full range of treatments for children and individuals with special needs. When you visit our practice, you can count on receiving the highest quality of care and service in an atmosphere that is positive, caring and comfortable. Our pediatric dentists and team are dedicated to helping each patient we meet to achieve and maintain good oral health.
Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Dental Association (ADA), recommend that children visit a pediatric dental office by the time of their first birthday. Establishing a dental home makes it more likely that children will receive appropriate preventive dental care and also increases the likelihood of a healthy mouth and smile.
Through our Free Under Three program, our pediatric dentists provide free dental exams for all children until their third birthday. These visits focus on proper diet and nutrition, developing healthy oral habits and the role of parents in helping their children keep their teeth and mouth clean. While your child’s visit will focus primarily on them, it is also designed to be an education experience for parents. After examining your child’s mouth and providing any recommendations for ongoing care and oral health at home, our pediatric dentists will provide a fluoride treatment. If there is a need for X-rays or other dental treatment, these services will be charged according to our normal fee schedule.
Some of the services offered at Children’s Dentistry include:
- Adolescent Dentistry
- Early Infant Oral Care
- General Pediatric Dentistry
- Preventive Dentistry
- Special Needs Dentistry
Our goal at Children’s Dentistry is to help children develop positive associations with the dental office, and to develop a trusting relationship with the children we meet so that they can avoid anxiety and fear while at our office. Parents play an important role in making their children’s first visit to the dentist positive and enjoyable.
We recommend that your child be informed of their visit if they are old enough to understand. You should also let them know that our pediatric dentists and team will explain all treatments and answer all their questions. Try to avoid using words that might cause fear or make the child think that there will be pain. We do everything possible to make your child’s experience as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Parents are always welcome to accompany their children during exams and other dental treatments, though other children who are not being treated should remain in our reception room with a supervising adult.
We welcome you to contact us at 801-295-8322 if you have any questions about your child’s first visit or our Free Under Three program, and to schedule your child’s appointment with Dr. Mark Nelson or Dr. Treagan White.
