It takes a special approach to make toddlers and school aged children feel comfortable at a dental visit. At Starting Point Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we specialize in giving kids the care and special consideration they need to have successful dental check-up’s. As a parent you can expect to be greeted by a team member that will focus on your specific questions and concerns as well as make your child comfortable. Sometimes small children need to sit on their parents lap for their first exam, we will do everything possible to make sure they have a great experience.
We will focus on educating the parents and caregivers on good dental habits as well as risky behavior that increases risk of cavities. A good dental routine at home will make all your visits to the pediatric dentist smooth and worry free.
We will consistently monitor their growth and development patterns in order to recommend any need for orthodontics at the appropriate time.
Dentistry for Tweens and Teens
Treating teenagers requires a different approach than treating children. We focus on teaching teens how to care for their teeth and gums. We also stress the importance of avoiding risky behavior that may cause cavities and oral cancer such as tobacco use.
We will continue to monitor their growth and development and make recommendations about orthodontics or removal of wisdom teeth at the appropriate time. We offer clear aligners for teens who may be nervous about wearing metal brackets in middle school or high school.
We also offer an office environment that makes teens feel welcome. We are equipped with games, televisions, and free wi-fi.
