Helping Kids Smile!
Most of us at Broadway Dental are parents ourselves, so we understand the importance of creating a positive experience at the dentist in order to maintain healthy teeth and gums for our children. We go out of our way to make visiting the dentist fun, from greeting kids with a smile, engaging in conversation and providing goodies with every visit. We want to see your kids grow up with the absolute best dental care, beginning in their early years. At Broadway Dental, we love helping kids smile! Thanks to the number of highly experienced dentists, hygienists and assistants on our team, we have the expertise to provide exceptional care to your exceptional kid!
What kinds of services do you offer for kids?
We are your child’s full service dental provider, providing practically all of the same services that we would for your teeth. This includes regular checkups and cleanings, cavity restorations, and treatment of all the little things before they turn into larger, more costly problems. But rest assured, if there is ever a special procedure that we feel would be best performed by another specialist, we will refer you to an outside professional.
At what age should my child start visiting Broadway Dental?
To ensure your child’s dental health is set for a great future, we recommend making your first appointment before the age of 1. From there, we will make recommendations for visit frequency based on the checkup results. If you’ve already missed that age, come see us as soon as you can—certainly no later than your child’s fifth birthday.
My child is scared to visit the dentist. What should I do?
It’s normal to expect a little uncertainty about something new, whether it’s a haircut, a first bike ride, or a visit to the dentist. Once your child is here, we will do everything within our ability to create an easygoing (and even fun!) experience that will help ease many fears. We provide comforting smiles, clear explanation to the child of what we’ll be doing in their mouth and fun diversions like in-room TV and treats afterward.
Give us a call!
If you think your child may have trouble on the very first appointment, we recommend a “meet and greet” — Give us a call and set up a time prior to your actual appointment, when you can bring your child in for a friendly visit. We’ll take your little one around our office with a smile, provide a fun treat and some tooth care items, helping them understand that a visit to the dentist is always a good thing!
