Preventive Care

Prepare their teeth for a century of living!

Pediatric dentistry is the hallmark of preventative dentistry.  Advances in health and human longevity mean many children born in the first part of this century will also see the first part of the next century. A far greater percentage than ever before will have all their teeth with few or no cavities.

Will your kids’ teeth be up for the journey?

Good oral hygiene habits, preventative care begin at Kids Smile.  Regular cleanings, fluoride therapy and thorough check-ups should begin after your child’s first birthday or first 6 teeth. Placement of Sealants on permanent molars as soon as they are erupted, or on baby teeth as needed.
