Healthy Smiles for the Entire Family
Pediatric Dentistry Services In Winchester, VA
WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE WORKING WITH CHILDREN AT SMILES OF VIRGINIA.
Our goal is to make your children feel at ease so that they have the best and most positive experience they have ever had at a dentist. Your kids will learn:
WE ALSO HAVE AN AMAZING TOY REWARDS CENTER, THAT EVERY CHILD CAN SEE BEFORE SEEING THE DENTIST; EVEN OUR ADULT PATIENTS GET JEALOUS!
Children’s teeth – called primary teeth or baby teeth – are important and need to be kept in good health for the following reasons:
WHEN SHOULD I START BRINGING MY CHILD TO THE DENTIST?
Many people wonder when they should start bringing their child to the dentist. The American Dental Association has promoted that a child should begin seeing the dentist at age 1 or within 6 months of their first tooth erupting; whichever is sooner. One reason we would like to see your child from early childhood is to be able to guide parents about ways to help your child brush, and how to help prevent cavities. It is much easier to help prevent a cavity, than to have to do a filling! Also, we want your child to get used to the dentist, and the different things they see at the dentist. That way the child does not feel surprised, or worried, about their dental visits, as it will feel that they have grown up visiting the dentist every 6 months!
WE OFFER MANY WAYS TO MAKE YOUR CHILD FEEL COMFORTABLE IF THEY SHOULD NEED TO HAVE DENTAL WORK DONE.
First and foremost, with every child visit, we practice Tell-Show-Do.
OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE YOUR CHILD AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE WHILE KEEPING THEIR SMILE HEALTHY AND HAPPY!
And, at the end of their visit, all of our amazing pediatric patients are rewarded with “gold coins” to use in the toy center.
