Children Require Special Attention When It Comes To Dental Care, Including Teaching The Child Healthy Habits And How To Care For His Or Her Teeth.This Branch Of Dentistry Deals With Children From Birtth To Adolescence. It Is Recommended That A Dental Visit Should Occur Within Six Months After The Presence Of The First Tooth.It Is Important To Establish A Comprehensive And Accessible Ongoing Relationship Between The Dentist And Patient. This Is Because Early Oral Examination Aids In The Detection Of Early Stages Of Tooth Decay.
We recommend a first checkup by 12 months old to make certain that teeth and jaw development are normal and even more importantly so that parents and guardians know how to help their children be healthy from the start.
Guidelines for working with children

There is a significant value for early well baby dental checkups. In particular, checkups for very young children address many concerns including teaching adults how to care for their child's teeth and gums, how to help their children learn to care for themselves, answering parents questions and concerns and planning for future dental health.
Education and prevention are the cornerstones of our concern for the dental health of children. Checkups are done at appropriate time to evaluate:
»How many teeth are present
» Are all teeth present
» Loose teeth if any
» Braces / bite evaluation
» Cavity check
» Check health of gums
» Habit evaluation
» Homecare / prevention
» Fluoride use
» Review diet
» Address adult's concerns
» Teach adults how to care for child's teeth
