Pediatric & kid dentistry in our Beverly Hills Dental Office
Parents often overlook pediatric dentistry until the child complains of some dental issue. However, early intervention and education is key in lowering the risk of early cavities for children. By providing preventive oral health education to pregnant and young mothers, we get an early start in providing good oral health for our young pediatric patients. We often encourage our patients to bring their children to our office at lease by the age of two, when toddlers have developed all their baby teeth. We encourage our patients to bring their child for the first time just to observe the dentist at work. There is nothing more assuring for a child than to see their parent having dental work done in a comfortable environment. We don’t expect the child to observe the parent going through a full visit, but a short glance during a simple cleaning would be ideal. If the child would allow us, we’ll do a check up at this point, otherwise we’ll wait until the next visit so the child is more comfortable with the dentists. It is extremely important to us that dental visits are not a traumatic experience for any child. We truly believe that our patients must be treated with respect and in the gentlest manner.
Our pediatric dentistry philosophy is eliminating pediatric dental disease. Our emphasis is on prevention and education and if our pediatric patients need any dental work they will receive the same high quality care as their parents receive by our skilled Beverly Hills Kid dentists.
