Do you treat children?
We treat patients of all ages, including children, in our Norfolk dental office. In fact, your children are our special guests. We welcome kids from their very first dental appointment, and we are honored to help them develop a positive attitude toward dentistry and caring for their teeth.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry strongly urges that children have their initial dental appointment by age one, or when their first tooth emerges. At this early childhood dental appointment, we will let your little one have a ride in the chair and look at how their teeth are developing.
This is also a great opportunity to discuss healthy diets, good home care, and what will be happening with your child’s smile in the coming months.
We offer cleanings, fluoride, sealants, extraction of stubborn baby teeth, and space maintainers to protect your child’s permanent teeth. Our care changes as your child develops, incorporating x-rays and mouthguards for sports as needs arise.
Our dentists are extremely gentle and caring when working with kids. When kids are a little nervous, we can offer happy gas to help your child relax.
You can count on excellent dentistry for patients of all ages at Norfolk County Dental Care.
