At Blackwell Dentistry, we love treating whole families – and that includes the youngest members! Helping children have positive, enjoyable experiences at the dentist’s office from a young age is very important to Dr. Neale, which is why our office features games, operatories with whimsical designs, and plenty of other special touches that can make regular oral healthcare an adventure for your son or daughter. We offer several children’s dentistry services that benefit every age range, helping smiles grow up strong and stay that way for hopefully many years to come. Contact us today here in Blackwell, OK to schedule a first appointment.
When Should I Bring My Child In For a First Dental Visit?
Dr. Neale recommends that parents plan to bring their child in soon after they’ve gotten their very first baby tooth. This may seem early, but it will allow your baby the chance to get used to the sights and sounds of our office. We can also check their little mouth for any signs of developmental problems and offer parents plenty of good advice about keeping their developing smiles clean at home.
As your loved one grows, our approach to their care will grow right along with them. Brief exams will turn into regular checkups and cleanings, and services like dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and even tooth-colored fillings may become necessary at times. Don’t worry – if your child is afraid, anxious, or unable to sit still for treatment, IV sedation is available to make their care much safer.
