Dental Hygiene

Good dental hygiene starts with routine cleanings for your child with a dentist. During appointments, we’ll show your child how to brush, floss and develop a great health care routine he or she can carry into adulthood. We also make regularly scheduled cleanings a time of discovery and learning as our team identifies and talks about each instrument they use.

Our playful and professional dentist or dental hygienists will perform your child’s cleanings. They use special toothbrushes to loosen and remove deposits such as stains and plaque from teeth. Routine cleanings give our dentists a chance to locate problem areas that need special attention. We may also recommend special treatments such as fluoride and sealants.

We engage our young patients with an activity called “Tell, Show, Do.” We tell them about our special toothbrush that will tickle each of their teeth, show them on their finger, and then brush their teeth.

Dental cleanings are essential for preventive care. We recommend cleanings twice a year for all pediatric patients under our care.
