Pediatric dental exams
Regular dental appointments are important for the health of your child’s smile. We recommend you bring your child in for a dental exam with Dr. Gary every six months starting from the eruption of their very first tooth.
Why dental exams are so important for children
In the United States, tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in young children - and it’s completely preventable! The earlier you start dental appointments with your children, the better protected their mouths will stay throughout their lives. Dental exams in early childhood can help to prevent cavities from forming, diagnose genetic conditions, and ensure your child’s teeth allow them to speak and eat properly.
What happens at a pediatric dental exam?
At your child’s pediatric dental exam, Dr. Gary will evaluate your child’s smile and oral hygiene habits. This will help him to catch potential issues early on and create a plan for protecting your child’s oral health.
After taking dental records, Dr. Gary will give you an assessment of your child’s tooth decay risks, and can help you and your child learn ways to improve their oral health.
Then, Dr. Gary will gently clean your child’s teeth and give them a fluoride treatment to help protect against cavities. If your child already has cavities, Dr. Gary can also diagnose and treat them during dental appointments.

Many kids are anxious about visiting the dentist, but at KIND SMILES, they don’t have to be! We make oral health a fun and positive experience, and have extensive experience setting nervous minds at ease.
