At Hills Park Dental, we understand that every parent wants the best for their child’s wellbeing, including their oral health. We believe that establishing good oral care habits early is essential for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Our dedicated pediatric dentist and team are committed to providing gentle, precise and compassionate pediatric dentistry services in a warm and comfortable environment where children can feel at ease. Our goal is to build a trusting relationship with your child and help them have positive dental experiences as well as maintain a healthy mouth and smile.

What Goes Into Pediatric Dentistry?

To ensure your child maintains optimal oral health and a radiant smile, we recommend regular dental checkups and cleanings, ideally twice a year. Our skilled pediatric dentist and team are experienced in addressing the unique needs of children, making each visit a positive and informative experience.

During these visits, we conduct a thorough assessment of your child’s teeth, gums, jaws, and oral tissues. Digital X-rays are taken as needed to detect cavities or infections and assess tooth development and jaw health. A professional dental cleaning eliminates plaque and debris, promoting excellent oral hygiene.

The Importance of Pediatric Dentistry

Childhood is a time of immense change, including changes in your child’s oral health needs. Genetics and environmental factors influence their oral health and appearance. Our office provides age-appropriate information on maintaining healthy teeth, following a nutritious diet and avoiding harmful habits. In addition to monitoring your child’s oral health, we will also keep an eye on their facial growth, jaw development and smile alignment. If orthodontic treatment is needed, we will provide recommendations on when it should begin and guidance on what type of care will be most effective.
