A child’s attitude towards dental health can be greatly affected by their early experiences at a dentist’s office.
Our compassionate, caring staff at Dental Care Springfield is committed to making children’s visits pleasant, comfortable, and fun – planting the seeds for positive teeth habits later in life. We understand that it’s crucial to move at a pace that children are comfortable with, and communicate in a way that soothes their nerves as well as the nerves of their parents.
Fun At The Dentist? You Bet!
At Dental Care Springfield, guaranteeing children a positive dental experience is one of our top priorities. To help make this happen, we’ve created a unique, kid-friendly entertainment zone complete with a PlayStation video console as well as a supply of toys. This fun and supportive environment will help your child have a wonderfully fun and relaxed visit – as will our care and attention of our staff.
When Should I Schedule My Child’s First Dental Appointment?
According to the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry), it’s best to start regular pediatric dental visits around a child’s first birthday. Starting healthy dental habits at anyoung age lets us find and treat issues at very early stages, and avoid un-needed complications as the child matures.
How Often Should My Child Visit the Dentist?
We recommend that children visit the dentist every six months. This reduces the risk of cavities, allowing us to catch them early and implement preventative care. These regular visits will provide many benefits to your child – such as removal of plaque, which can cause bad breath and lead to gum disease.
