For older kids and young teens.
This is an interesting time for teeth. In some cases, kids have what we call mixed dentition, a period when they have baby and permanent teeth at the same time.
The first visit is similar to our toddlers and tykes in that we determine the need for xrays, cleaning, and fluoride treatment. Following this routine we will work more closely with your child to help them tend to their teeth independently. This is an age where your child will be gaining more independence and control. Our goals are to impress healthy dental habits and work with your child on positive youth development.
Topics that will be covered include sealants, braces, mouth trauma, substance abuse counseling, and bleaching.
