When Does Your Child Need To See a Dentist?

As pediatric dentists, we advise parents to schedule their child's first appointment after their first birthday and visit every six months after that for routine check-ups. Getting an oral exam by a pediatric dentist is important because it can help detect potential problems and can also help us track your child's progress. If your child is feeling any kind of tooth or mouth discomfort, we advise you to make an appointment so that we can help identify the problem and provide a solution.

What Sets Us Apart from Other Dental Offices?

If you've been looking for a dentist who is not only qualified but also cares about the well-being of your child, then you've found the right pediatric dental office. We got into this profession because we wanted to help people gain confidence in their smile, and we enjoy tailoring our approach to each unique case. When you're ready to reach out, our friendly staff will be happy to assist.

What Types of Cases/Conditions Do You Handle?

As pediatric dental specialists, we don't limit our practice to certain categories of children or treatments. We see everyone from average kids with average cavities to athletes who have had dental trauma to special needs children who require focused and specialized treatment. We celebrate patients who make it into our no-cavity club or who stop a thumb-sucking habit. We welcome new, young patients into our practice and we are sad when they are finally old enough to graduate to an adult dentist.

What Type of Insurances Are Accepted?

We accept a wide variety of PPO insurances, but we are not a provider for HMO, Medicare, Medi-Cal or Denti-Cal. Please feel free to call (661) 276-8755 to confirm if we accept your PPO insurance to make your dental procedure easy and affordable for your family.

How Do I Make Sure My Child Has Good Oral Health in the Future?

The best way to ensure your child has healthy teeth and gums in their adolescent and adult life is to have them develop healthy oral care habits as soon as possible. By educating them on the importance of brushing and flossing regularly and properly, your child will be able to help prevent dental problems later in life. You should also consider their diet and try to give them healthy and balanced meals. Avoid overly processed foods that are high in artificial sugars and try to stick with fruits, vegetables, cheese, and other low-sugar foods as snacks. Ask a knowledgeable pediatric dentist in Santa Clarita about the most effective ways to improve and maintain your child’s oral health.
