Even if your child does an excellent job of keeping their teeth and gums squeaky clean at home, it’s still important that they have an experienced pediatric dentist examine their smile to ensure that everything looks good. Our friendly dental team at Shaenfield Dentistry works hard to make sure that every kid who visits our office has a productive visit and feels comfortable in our office. To schedule your child’s next visit, please contact our front office by using our virtual contact form or by giving us a call.Contact Us
Children need to visit the dentist for dental exams and cleanings at least twice per year, just like adults. While baby teeth will eventually fall out and be replaced by adult teeth, keeping your little one’s teeth and gums clean and healthy is one of the best ways to help them maintain positive oral health in the future. Our team will remove any built-up plaque from their teeth and around their gum line, examine their little smile to diagnose any potential issues, and create a treatment plan as soon as possible, if necessary.
We completely understand when kids become anxious at the thought of visiting the dentist, but we recommend scheduling biannual dental appointments for your child for two main reasons. Visiting the dentist regularly from a young age sets your child up for success in the future by reducing their chances of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. It also helps them get used to visiting the dentist, so every time they visit our office and have a pleasant experience, it chips away at their anxiety bit by bit.
If your child has dental insurance, their biannual cleanings and exams are covered, so we highly recommend taking advantage of their benefits and scheduling routine visits. If your child does not have dental insurance, our office offers and accepts a variety of budget-friendly ways that families can pay for their care, including in-house financing, CareCredit®, and Medicaid plans. If you are concerned about financing the cost of your child’s next routine cleaning and exam, feel free to contact our office for assistance.Contact Us
