At Vital Smiles, caring for young smiles is our specialty. Our Midfield dentists are equipped to address every facet of your child’s smile as they grow, beginning from the time their very first tooth emerges. We place a strong emphasis on creating pediatric dentistry that is fun, relaxing and rewarding for kids. In doing so, our young patients grow to value the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums, and they retain a positive association with going to the dentist. The truth is, dental care can be fun and it certainly doesn’t have to be intimidating or painful. Our Midfield family dental practice can prove it.
Dental Care for Kids
From the moment they walk through our doors, we set the right tone for your child. Our waiting area features kid-friendly videos and a play area. To further ease their anxiety, we encourage parents to accompany their child in the treatment room. This provides extra security and supports a collaborative approach to your child’s dental care. In a kid-friendly and non-threatening way, we will explain the basics of good oral hygiene. For toddlers and young school-aged kids, this requires strong parent involvement. For example, parents should never put a child to bed with a bottle of juice, milk or formula and an adult should floss for a child until they can tie their own shoe.
Equipping children and parents for healthier, more confident smiles is something we deeply value at Vital Smiles in Midfield. Seeing the dentist on a regular basis and establishing strong dental habits at home can protect your child’s smile now and in the future. In many cases, this allows families to avoid unnecessary dental treatments and more costly restorative procedures later on.
Give your child the gift of a positive dental experience and contact Vital Smiles in Midfield today. We are happy to book an appointment that works within your family’s schedule. Please let us know if you’d like to learn about our Medicaid and Insurance acceptance or discuss any of our financing plans. Pediatric dental care can be stress-free at Vital Smiles!
