Progressive Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers quality dental care for children using the latest advances in dental technology. A family dentist is the perfect choice for many children. Children feel like a grown up when they go to the same dentist as their parents and older siblings and can then begin developing healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

 

 

Childhood brings unique dental issues such as the emergence of first teeth, teeth falling out, dental tramas, preventing tooth decay, fillings, sealants, cosmetic dentistry, tooth alignment, braces, retainers, sports mouth guards, wisdom teeth, proper tooth growth, professional cleanings, and proper home care. We know how to deal with all these issues and will calmly address both your fears and your child's fears. Our goal is to make every visit to our office as pleasant as possible.

 

We also know how tramatic dental visits can be for some children, especially if the child is older or already has dental issues. We will help you and your child get through each visit as smoothly as possible. Our caring staff will treat your children as if they are our own. Patience and compassion are important aspects of our practice.

 

If your child has special concerns, or special needs, please be sure to let us know in advance and we will do everything we can to ensure their visit goes as smoothly as possible.

Tips for making your child's first visit a success:

  • You may be anxious about your child's first visit to the dentist, but they don't know what to expect and will follow your lead. A positive attitude will start your child off with an enjoyable experience, making it easier on both of you and leading to a lifetime of healthy dental care.
  • Start young, the earlier a child begins going to the dentist the better. The first visit is usually an introduction visit with oral hygiene tips for the parents.
  • Be honest about what they can expect during their visit. Kids are smart and deserve to know why they need to go to the dentist and what to expect.
  • Use words of encouragement. Avoid using words like shot or pain. Use positive phrases whenever possible. First visits usually just involved "counting the teeth" and light cleaning. They may need to have a picture taken of a tooth or get their teeth polished and shined.
  • Have your child take their favorite book, toy, or electronic device to use in the waiting room.
  • Have them wear comfortable clothing and make sure they aren't hungry.
