The current recommendation is for children to be seen at the dentist as soon as their first tooth comes in. This gives us the opportunity to instruct parents in kid’s oral hygiene, get the child used to being seen at the dentist, and we normally place a topical fluoride varnish at that visit to protect the teeth as they come in.
Although many general dentists shy away from treating children, this is not the case here at Dayspring Dental! Dr. Kathy has undergone extensive training to treat all ages of children. From infant lip and tongue tie treatment, to no shot fillings with the Waterlase dental laser, to orthodontics and Invisalign, we have your child’s dental needs covered.
Dr. Kathy is one of an elite group of general dentists who have completed advanced training in orthodontics. She treats every age from pre-teen to adults to straighten teeth and align their jaws. Why should you choose a general dentist for your braces rather than an orthodontist? Both will provide you with excellent care. But a properly trained general dentist will also be able to treat decay and gum problems at the same time as your orthodontics, saving you time.
