Finding a children’s dentist you know, love, and trust can be overwhelming. But at Cross, Lavinder, Park, and Quinn Family Dentistry, we have only the most experienced and patient dental hygienists in our dentist offices. With three locations from which to choose, we’re sure you’ll find an office that is convenient for your schedule as well as a dental hygienist your children will trust.
According to the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry), when a toddler gets a first tooth or turns one, they should be scheduled to visit a dentist to start them off on the right track to proper oral health. Starting when they’re little, children should learn the proper foundation for their oral health so they can have that extra advantage to a happier, healthier smile. From visiting the dentist twice a year to brushing and flossing every day, every child deserves to be proud of their smile and love the way their teeth feel. Working with children at home is the best way to improve their dental hygiene because it begins healthy routines they can maintain for years to come.
During your child’s dentist appointment, we will gently clean your child’s teeth and remove any plaque or tartar. We will also carefully examine their mouth and teeth for any potential issues and work with you on how we can work to avoid them. Another way we work to prevent tooth decay in children and adults is our fluoride treatments. As tooth decay has become the most common chronic childhood illness in the U.S., it is our goal to help teach children proper oral hygiene and protect their teeth from possible future issues during their regularly-scheduled dentist appointments.
