Education is the Key!
We believe education is really the key to prevention and a huge component of pediatric dentistry. Of course healthy habits for our children start with what we as parents teach and model for them from day one. Your pediatrician will recommend establishing a “Dental Home” for your child by their first birthday or 6 months after the eruption of their first tooth. By age 2-3 we find the tell-show-do technique is very effective with children as they become more interactive with our staff and doctors. Our experienced staff and doctors explain what we will be doing in child-friendly terminology so they know what to expect. Educating them in this manner helps them feel at ease with the dental setting and allows us to emphasize the importance of having optimal oral health.
We strive to present a fun and comfortable atmosphere for our young patients, so they’ll enjoy coming to the dentist for future visits. Don’t wait to call San Diego’s expert pediatric dentists at Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontic Specialists!
