Your child's Pediatric Dental Home

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) all recommend establishing a "Dental Home" for your child by one year of age.

Pediatric Dentists strive to provide you and your family with a venue for comprehensive prevention and treatment of disease: A child's Dental Home, like the home you provide, should be in comfortable surroundings, family-centered, easily accessible, compassionate, and culturally sensitive. The dental care offered should be comprehensive in scope and provided by properly trained and qualified pediatric providers. The dental home is a place where you and your child's pediatric dentist can establish mutual understanding and trust that will enrich the professional relationship and provide your child with optimal dental care.

Knowing your child's family background and medical history makes it more likely that your pediatric dentist will be able to identify any behaviors or conditions that place your child at risk for dental disease or other illness. It also gives dentists the information they need to personalize your care.

Our commitment is to provide a Dental Home for your child that offers:
  • Comprehensive dental care in accordance with accepted guidelines and periodicity schedules for pediatric oral health

  • A special place to establish positive attitudes about dental care that transcend common fears or phobias

  • Restorative or surgical dental care, if needed, that meets the child's and parent's psychological needs

  • Information about proper care of the child's teeth and gums

  • Information about proper nutrition and the pitfalls that may lead to tooth decay

  • Guidance on growth and development issues, such as thumb and pacifier habits

  • Interceptive orthodontic and facial orthopedic care for children with developing malocclusions

  • Pit and fissure sealants

  • A plan for dental-facial trauma and after hours emergency care
