As a pediatric dental specialist and your child’s oral primary care provider, we will assess several areas of their growth and development at each and every recall visit and discuss ways to minimize their risk of developing cavities:

  • Dental and Oral development – dental milestones, growth charts, anomalies
  • Fluoride – sources of at home fluoride and professional applications
  • Non-nutritive habits – thumb sucking and pacifier use at a young age, then nail biting and pen chewing as teenagers
  • Injury prevention – child proofing your home in the beginning, car safety, bike safety, sports participation, trauma management and follow up
  • Diet – from bottle to Sippy cup to regular cup, then pop and sports drink use as children get older
  • Oral hygiene – at home practices, including tooth brushing and flossing but also need for parental assistance
