Why Dental Care Is Critical for Children

Many general dentists refer children to other practices when they need fillings, extractions, orthodontic care, or other treatment needs. The Dental Team can take care of your child’s needs through our practice without referring them to anyone else. Dentistry for children is important for many reasons:

Children's Cavity Prevention

Children should start visiting the dentist when they get their first tooth. Early care can help prevent cavities, allowing children to avoid pain or other issues.

Children's Dental Care Education

We talk with children at their appointments about oral hygiene and how to brush and floss properly.

Bite Development

Dentists monitor your child’s teeth as they are erupting, check their bite and recommend orthodontic care as needed.

Types of Dentistry for Children

Dentistry for children includes many of the same services offered to adults. Here are some of the types of dental services for children.

Preventative Dental Care

Preventive care includes cleaning, fluoride treatment, and nutrition and habit counseling on thumb sucking, pacifier use, etc.


Dentists will assess the child’s bite and refer them for orthodontic care if they need help straightening their teeth.

Care for Dental Injuries

Children need treatment for their injuries and tooth repair if they experience fractured, displaced, or knocked-out teeth.


We offer a wide range of services to meet the dental needs of patients of all ages. These include preventative, and emergency dental care for children, as well as wisdom teeth extraction, orthodontics, nightguards, sportguards, and more.
