Elite Dental welcomes patients of all ages, including the youngest members of your family. We encourage you to bring your children to see our dentists by age three so that Drs. Steven and Randy can monitor their oral health. Our Kidz Korner keeps young patients entertained at our office and is something they can look forward to at their next visit. To schedule your child’s appointment for pediatric dentistry in American Fork, Utah, call 801-763-7737 today!
Our pediatric dentistry is a part of our regular office that is dedicated to caring for your children’s dental needs. The basic idea behind pediatric dentistry is to offer a gentle and caring environment for children so they look forward to visiting us and learn how to take care of their teeth. You can bring in your child as early as one year old, since it is common for them to already have teeth growing in. Unless otherwise specified, they should continue to come in every six months, just like you do.
The pediatric dental care we offer has so many benefits for your and your family. There are also significant differences between general and pediatric care. They need specialized care from a certified pediatric dentist like us. With additional training and education, we are more than qualified to treat dental issues and maintain the health of your child’s teeth.
We meet the dental needs of your children from infancy all the way through their teenage years. We know how to care for each stage of development and what to look for as their jaws and teeth continue to change. Your children will receive the best care and education for their oral health.
The dental office can seem intimidating to any child, especially since it is a medical office. We have created a Kidz Korner to make them feel more welcome and get them excited about coming in to their appointments. This Korner has an interactive floor game that is sure to have your child excited about visiting the dentist. This is also a great area to use if you have multiple children coming in for their appointments on the same day. They will be completely distracted and carefree, giving you a chance to relax while you wait.
Our Staff Is Experienced With Children
Having a welcoming staff who cares about their patients is exactly what we provide. We go to extra lengths to welcome every child that comes through our door, even if they are no there for their own appointment. Not only do we truly care about forming lasting relationships, we also know how important it is to make children feel safe and welcome. Part of taking care of their teeth is making sure they feel comfortable enough to ask questions and voice any concerns with their teeth they may have noticed between appointments. We also have effective techniques to calm down a nervous child and distract them while we clean and treat their teeth.
Develop Healthy Dental Habits
The experience your child has with us will allow them to carry a healthy and educated attitude towards their dental health into their adulthood. We go out of our way to ensure your child does not grow up suffering from dental anxiety, which is one of the most common reasons people avoid the dentist and end up having major oral health issues. Any fears or reservations your child may have will be put aside once they meet our staff and learn that taking care of their teeth is easy and fun. This also gives them the best chance at avoiding dental issues and only having to come in for regular cleaning every six months. In the future, when it is time to have their wisdom teeth removed, they will trust us and not be nervous about this procedure.
Keep Your Child’s Teeth and Gums Healthy
The biggest benefit to our pediatric dentistry is the care your child receives. With our experience and expertise, we are able to detect any potential dental issues that can arise through all the stages of their oral development. Bringing them in for regular cleanings and x-ray appointments allows us to track the progress of their developing jaws, teeth, gums and molars. We go over the x-rays of their teeth with them so they can learn and be involved in the process. This makes the overall experience much more fun for them. We know every child is eager to learn, which is why we take the time to teach them what they need to know and are always open and patient with any questions they have.
At Elite dental, developing a relationship with our children is important for their oral health. With our pediatric dentistry, your child will be set up for success and a healthy, beautiful smile. If you have questions about the dental needs of your children or teens, come in for a consultation. We are the trusted dental experts for your entire family.
