What Is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry focuses on the oral health needs of children. This special training provides dentists with the extra skills and knowledge needed to diagnose and treat conditions and dental issues that apply to those in infancy through the teen years. It also includes engaging the child on educational topics of oral health care, such as how to properly brush and floss teeth.
Special care is often given to these little patients to create an experience that will set the tone for their future oral health. With a great deal of patience and effective technique, the dental team at Lane Family Dentistry can handle all types of dental procedures without compromising the overall wellbeing of the child.

When should a child first go to the dentist?
You should take your child to the dentist as soon as their first tooth appears. Or no later than their first birthday - whichever comes first.
How can I prepare my child for a first dental visit?
Talking about the importance of oral hygiene should be something that is regularly discussed. Before it is time for their visit, give your child a little information about their appointment and address any questions or concerns they have. Stay positive and your child will stay positive, too.
How often should my child see the dentist?
Generally, your child should be seen by the dentist every 6 months. If there are developmental concerns or other issues, it may be recommended that dental appointments be more frequent.
