At Country Dental, our pediatric dentists have the experience with children and education in child psychology.

Professional Dental Cleaning
Oral care is an important factor in our daily lives. Not only is it important for keeping your smile white and breath smelling fresh, it can also prevent nasty gum diseases and oral complications. It is recommended you see your dentist at least twice a year for teeth cleaning.
Not everyone is born with perfect teeth, that is why our in-house orthodontists treat each client specifically so your smile will shine. With availability 7 days a week, we are very accessible.
Stages of Child Development
Dental care for infants should happen almost immediately after birth. Plaque and bacteria will begin to collect on an infant’s gums after feeding. Ensure that your child’s food intake is monitored and that you clean your baby’s gums on a regular basis to avoid gum disease.
During the toddler years, this is when the child’s baby teeth will start to grow in. This is also a fundamental stage of learning for a toddler like brushing and flossing teeth. Teaching your child how to maintain tooth health by advising against sweets is advantageous during this time.
This critical point of dental care and knowledge is when your child will lose their baby teeth and have their permanent teeth grow in. This is when proper oral care habits must be set in stone such as brushing and flossing in the morning and evening.
The teen years of a child’s tooth development can be a time where a teen must monitor their teeth very attentively. This is also the time when they determine whether they have tooth issues such as uneven teeth, overbite’s, underbite’s, and crossbite’s.
