Our dedicated team loves working with our youngest patients and helping them get off to the right start in terms of dental health. By bringing in your child for visits during their younger years, they will have the greatest likelihood of maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime.
At Westchase Smiles Institute Institute, we encourage parents to bring their child to the dentist shortly after their first teeth begin to emerge. This is typically between the ages of six months and one year. Children who make visits at this young age will become more familiar with the standard process, and it will make them feel more comfortable with seeing an oral care professional when they grow older. After the first visit, a child should continue to make regular visits once every six months, unless otherwise instructed. Additionally, parents should make sure that their child follows any instructions for at-home care.
When providing dental care for younger patients, our staff will do everything possible to maximize their comfort during the visit. Children and teens enjoy the flat-screen TVs that are featured in our patient rooms. If your child feels nervous about visiting the dentist, we can offer them blankets and pillows for comfort. And parents will appreciate our family scheduling options that make it easy for your entire family to receive care on the same day.
Our pediatric services include sealants and fluoride applications.
