About Pediatric Dentistry
A gorgeous, healthy smile is important at all ages and stages of life. Our goal at MINT dentistry is to give each child a fun and stress-free dental experience at our offices so they develop a positive association with dental health that will last the rest of their life. Parents should schedule their children’s visits to MINT dentistry at least twice a year for dental cleanings and exams. During their visit, our team of board-certified dentists will assess the development of your child’s teeth, look for areas of concern, and educate your child on how to care for their mouth. MINT dentistry has been named “Best Family Dentist” by Consumers Choice two years in a row. When your child arrives, our front staff will give them an iPad already loaded with fun, parent-approved games to keep them busy during their visit. Start your child off with a great smile by scheduling an appointment for them at MINT dentistry.
Best Candidates for Pediatric Dentistry
Children can experience cavities and tooth decay as early as two years old. MINT dentistry suggests parents bring children as young as 18-months old in for their first visit, so a MINT dental professional can make sure there are no overbite problems or structural issues. Your child may have their baby teeth for several years, so it is important that they remain in good health until their permanent teeth have grown in. This means scheduling appointments twice a year for exams and cleanings.
What to Expect with Pediatric Dentistry
Before our team of talented dental professionals begin your child’s dental exam, we will make sure they feel safe and comfortable. Throughout the appointment, we will talk to your child and explain what is happening so they are part of the process. They will be given a pair of MINT sunglasses and asked to relax in one of our super comfy treatment chairs. One of our MINT team members will then begin a simple exam of your child’s mouth before performing a cleaning. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be recommended to help protect the teeth as your child grows older. Should our team discover a concern, a customized treatment plan will be created with your child’s utmost care and comfort in mind. MINT dentistry is committed to using the most advanced dental technology available in the industry to ensure dental procedures are fast, effective, and comfortable.
Pediatric Dentistry Treatment Aftercare
If one of our dental professionals detects a problem during your child’s dental examination or cleaning, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment for treatment. Our MINT team of dentists are skilled at providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care. Should your child need braces, fillings, or treatment for an injured tooth, we are ready to help. For optimal oral health, MINT dentistry recommends you schedule dental cleanings in six-month intervals and dental exams once a year for your child. Aftercare following a regularly scheduled dental exam or cleaning includes a dedicated at-home oral health regimen, as instructed by the MINT dentistry team.
The MINT Commitment
Regularly scheduled pediatric dental examinations and cleanings are usually covered by your dental insurance provider. If a treatment or procedure is necessary, our MINT support staff will contact your provider to determine any additional costs. If you do not have dental insurance, we accept many payment methods to help make your child's dental care easier to afford. MINT dentistry believes that a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth are invaluable assets and we are committed to helping you afford both.
