Did you know that your child’s first dental appointment should occur by the time he or she turns one year old? Well, our gentle dentist for children provides many services to give your young son or daughter the best dental care possible!

At Dental Health Care Associates, we know that you want the best for your children, and that most likely includes the best healthcare and dental care possible. That is why we offer children’s dentistry at our office. Furthermore, our gentle dentists are here for your children’s dental care needs every step of the way, no matter what age. Rest assured, your young son or daughter will learn how to care for their teeth at a young age so they can enjoy the long-lasting benefits of healthy teeth and gums.

Children’s dentistry services we offer

  • Our gentle dentists in Philadelphia will teach your children about the importance of toothpaste, fluoride, as well as brushing and flossing their teeth. Actually, so they can gain the most knowledge and develop healthy teeth and gums starting at an early age, we recommend that your child come to our office every six months for routine checkups and cleanings from our hygienist.
  • Forming such positive dental habits early on in your child’s life will serve as preventive measures so they can develop healthy dental hygiene regimes. We want your child to prevent cavities before they even have a chance to start!
  • Also, for young children who have crowded teeth and/or who are thumb suckers, we offer a harmless, but effective, orthodontic treatment called orthotain. As children lose their baby teeth and their adult teeth erupt out of their gums, this soft plastic appliance guides their teeth into the correct position. This is a painless and effective method to correct crowded or misaligned teeth at an early age. Parents absolutely love the orthotain option, as it safely and effectively corrects unwanted dental problems at an early age.
  • Furthermore, our friendly and highly skilled gentle dentists and dental hygienists will provide fluoride treatments and oral examinations to check for decay and assess growth and development. This will happen during the routine, six-month checkup appointments.
