Here Is Why You Should Book a Dental Checkup for Your Kid This Spring

Posted on Apr 30 2023

 Hey parents! Dr. Kennel from Burien Children's Dentistry here. We get asked this question a lot:

"How often should I book a dental appointment for my child?"

As a parent, one of your top priorities is ensuring your child's overall health and well-being. Oral health is an important aspect of their overall health, and regular dental check-ups are key in maintaining a healthy mouth. Spring is a great time to book a dental check-up for your kid, and here are three reasons why.

Preventive care

Preventive care is crucial in maintaining good oral health. Regular dental check-ups allow dentists to identify and prevent issues before they become bigger problems. Dental cleanings remove built-up plaque and tartar, which can lead to cavities and gum disease. Your dentist can also provide fluoride treatments and dental sealants to protect your child's teeth from decay.

Early detection

If your child does have any dental issues, catching them early can help prevent more serious problems in the future. Regular check-ups allow dentists to monitor your child's dental health and identify any potential problems before they become more difficult to treat. This can help save your child from pain, discomfort, and more extensive dental procedures.

Education and guidance

Dentists can provide valuable education and guidance to both you and your child. They can teach your child proper brushing and flossing techniques, and provide tips on maintaining good oral hygiene. They can also answer any questions you may have about your child's dental health and provide guidance on things like diet and nutrition.

In conclusion, booking a dental check-up for your child this spring is an important step in maintaining their oral health. Preventive care, early detection, and education and guidance are all valuable reasons to make regular dental check-ups a priority. Don't wait until your child is experiencing pain or discomfort - schedule a dental appointment today and help keep their smile healthy and bright.

Our Reviews

Araina, mother of a 5 year old

Took my daughter here for her very first appointment. She was a little nervous at first but the staff was so friendly! They took the time to explain to her each one of the tools they were using and she got to put a magnet on "no cavities" wall. She did great and I'm glad she'll be excited to go back in 6 months.

Bianca, mother of a 7 year old

Great experience. Able to get in on short notice. Front office, tech and doctor were all very patient with my 2 year old and very informative. Would absolutely recommend!

Sarah, mother of a 8 months old

When we walked in my son was so happy and excited! The entire place is like a forest with animals and trees! They waiting area had 4 TV's with video games for the older kids! And books and puzzles! Then for the younger kids they have a slide and padded floors! So cool!

Nancy, mother of a 11 year old

Amazing! So our kiddo had this fever and complaining of his teeth hurting. We noticed the swelling gum lines, bad breath, and his lack of food enthusiasm.
