If you are in search of Los Angeles kids dentist, look no further than LA Dental town where children’s dentistry is all about fun, kid-friendly service. We recognize that the dental experiences your kids have during childhood will shape their outlook on oral health care for the rest of their lives. We do not take lightly the responsibility that rests on our shoulders, and we make every effort to ensure our youngest patients develop a positive attitude toward visiting the dentist for years to come.
Kid-Friendly Amenities and Care
Your kids may forget they are visiting the dentist when they walk into LA Dental Town. The first they will notice is the dedicated play area complete with attention-grabbing activities and a PlayStation. During exams and treatment, our friendly staff will talk with your children and teach them the importance of oral hygiene. If necessary, we can administer ‘laughing gas’ to help alleviate any lingering anxieties your child may have about being in the dental chair.
When is the First Visit to the Dentist Recommended for Children?
It is recommended that the first appointment is scheduled as soon as your child grows their first tooth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry also recommends for children to be seen by a dentist six months after the eruption of their first tooth.
What Happens During the First Visit?
During the first visit, the doctor will focus on evaluating your child and obtaining basic information about current dental health state. This includes an examination of the placement, arrangement, and current health of the teeth. These evaluations will specifically aim to look for potential problems in the gums or jaw. If necessary, some cleaning may be part of the first visit. In some cases, the initial visit may include digital x-rays, an overview of the child’s oral health history, full mouth exam, and general assessment of the child’s dental health requirements. The visit will also include an overview on how to practice proper oral health care, including brushing and flossing techniques.
