Q: Is there parking available?
A: Yes, there are several parking spots in the parking lot.
Q: When should my child first see the dentist?
A: The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that every child have their first dental visit by their first birthday or within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth. This allows the dentist to monitor the development of the oral tissues and gives the parents a resource for information about their child’s oral care.
Q: When should I start cleaning my baby's teeth?
A: The sooner the better. A baby’s gums should be cleaned with a soft cloth and water. By the time the first tooth comes in, you can start brushing the teeth and gums with a soft toothbrush twice a day.
Q: What should I do if my child’s permanent tooth is knocked out?
A: Find the tooth. Only rinse the tooth if it has dirt on it… do not scrub the tooth or clean it with anything other than water. If possible, holding the tooth by the crown, replace the tooth into the socket and hold it there with gauze or a clean wash cloth. If you cannot put the tooth back into the socket, place it into a clean container with either milk, or the child’s saliva. Get to the pediatric dentist’s office quickly (or call if it is after hours). Your chances of saving the tooth increase the faster you act.
