A Few Things for the Parents

We understand kids. We also know how, as a parent, you want the very best for your child’s health and future. At our office, you can rest assured that your children will feel loved and safe. We will help you encourage good oral health habits in your little ones and your teens, and we will address your questions with practical, informative answers.

Bring your child to one of your dental visits when they’re about a year old. This visit is non-threatening and acclimates your child to the atmosphere and the people at the dental office. Regular, bi-annual visits should begin around age two, but if they experience any oral health problems in the meantime, bring them in for a chat and quick check with Dr. Greenfield.

We offer checkups, cleanings, and advanced dental care for children from one year of age through adolescence, the teen years, and throughout their adulthood. Our hope is that we can provide general dental care for your family from your child’s first dental visit on!

In most cases, we can care for all of a child’s dental needs in our office. For restorative procedures that can be stressful, we offer mild sedation in the form of nitrous oxide. In some situations, children need a specialist, in which case, we’ll refer you to a respected pediatric dentist in the area.
