Children have unique and specific needs when it comes to their health care, and that goes for their dental care, too! At Beacon Square Family Dentistry, we love treating whole families – including children! – and we understand and recognize the special care needed at every stage of life.
We make visiting the dentist fun and exciting so that your child will truly enjoy coming to our office. The early years are the best time to instill healthy habits that will stick with your child for a lifetime, and we are happy to help.
So many people have fear of the dentist, and this fear often comes from scary early experiences. We are determined to break that cycle and help your child feel comfortable and confident at our office so that they grow up with a positive association of dentistry. This will help to set the stage for a lifetime of good oral health.
We go at your child's pace and will never force treatment. Sometimes kids will let us clean their teeth at their first visit, and sometimes it takes a couple visits before they trust us. That's okay. Building trust is vital, and we value those relationships.
At your child's visits, we'll answer all your questions and discuss your concerns about your child's oral health. If your child is using a pacifier or sucking their thumb, we can discuss how that might affect their oral health and give you advice and support. We'll also discuss good nutrition and the role it plays in healthy dental development. Kids are often naturally curious, and we enjoy showing them our different instruments and explaining what they do, using kid-friendly language that won't frighten them.
Give us a call to schedule your child's appointment at our Boca Raton dental office. We're looking forward to treating your entire family!
