At the office of Hayes Family Dentistry, it is our goal to provide quality dental care to your entire family. We strive to make our practice a comfortable and fun place to give our young patients a positive dental foundation.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child should have their first dental visit by their first birthday. This visit helps your child become familiar with a dental office and the dentist and helps to establish trust and comfort for their future visits. It also offers parents the opportunity to ask any questions about their child’s dental care regime. We will educate you on things like cavity prevention, protecting your child’s developing teeth, when to expect the milk teeth to come in, advice on thumb sucking habits, etc.
We also offer complete checkups for children. These checkups help us evaluate your child’s dental development and check for any abnormalities so that timely treatment can be administered. We will also offer tips on how to take care of your child’s teeth and advise on the use of dental sealants, fluoride application, and the use of dental mouth guards (for children who play active sports). These preventive treatments go a long way in protecting your child’s teeth from cavities and against trauma.
Early development of good dental hygiene is vital to the prevention of future problems that may hamper your child’s dental and overall health and well-being. Our office offers the best dental care for children and adults alike. Our caring staff makes every effort to help kids stay relaxed and calm while they receive the treatment they need.
