Pediatric Dentistry Q & A
What is pediatric dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on caring for children. Practitioners who specialize in pediatric dentistry have advanced training in treating children of all ages, and they enjoy working with kids to develop a lifetime of solid dental health.
Dr. Okoro loves working with kids, and he finds it very rewarding to build trusting bonds with the children in his care. Family dentistry allows him to watch kids grow up and thrive, while at the same time delivering top-quality care to entire families.
Why choose a family dentist?
Choosing a dentist who specializes in family dentistry means you can cover the dental needs of all family members with the same provider. This allows you to save time running across town to different dental offices and simplifies billing, scheduling, and recordkeeping.
Dr. Okoro and his team always take time to welcome kids into the office and ensure they are comfortable at the beginning of the visit. He fully explains every step before he begins, ensuring there are no surprises.
Kids are encouraged to ask questions and participate in the process. As your child grows older they’re taught how to take control of their own dental health needs, which is critical to developing the skills needed for outstanding dental hygiene.
When is the right time for my child’s first pediatric dentistry visit?
Experts recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental visit around the time that first tooth begins coming in, and no later than their first birthday. It may seem like there is little to do during these early visits, but working with a pediatric dentist is a great way to ensure baby teeth are coming in properly.
These initial visits are also an opportunity for parents to learn how to care for their baby’s teeth and gums. As your child grows older you’ll learn how to support solid dental hygiene routines, establishing good habits that will last a lifetime.
