Yes, we do.
At Harlow Dental at Steele Creek, we love kids! We will treat most children (depending on their behavior) at their first dental visit. We look forward to treating your entire family for many years to come, from the youngest member to the most mature.
We encourage you to bring your child to the dentist as early as age one to evaluate baby tooth eruption patterns and discuss pediatric oral health tips. As children get older, we can teach them proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Visiting the dentist at an early age also helps children get accustomed to sitting in the dental chair. Kids who start going to the dentist early in life also tend to have less fear of the dentist as they grow into adults.
We believe that treating children early and getting them started on the path to a lifetime of good oral health is critical for a lifetime of good oral health.
Regular childhood preventive care also helps kids avoid a number of all-too-common dental problems. For instance, we offer dental sealants for kids, a painless and noninvasive process we recommend around the time a child’s six-year molars erupt. Dental sealants help prevent decay-causing bacteria from forming on the back teeth. We also offer fluoride treatment for children as well as adults. Give us a call today to book a cleaning!
