Can’t Remember When Your Kiddo’s Last Dental Appointment Was? Time To Schedule!

Can’t Remember When Your Kiddo’s Last Dental Appointment Was? Time To Schedule!

At Quince Orchard Dental Care we see busy moms and busy dads all day (most of our staff falls into that category too). We know how commitments can fall by the wayside because schedules are busy and there just isn’t enough time in the day to even pick up the phone! 

We also know that a dental visit can seem like just one more thing on your plate, so we try to make scheduling as easy as possible for you. Booking is as simple as clicking here and using our online scheduler! Our front desk staff are fun, friendly, and efficient - plus we have convenient hours to work into your schedule.

Why is it so important to have your child visit the pediatric dentist every 6 months? Here are a few reasons that stand out to us: 

  • Routine. Kids thrive on routine. While 6 months apart may seem like a lot of time, trust us, your kids will get into the rhythm of visiting the dentist. Those who have a harder time adjusting to the office setting always do better with repetition. Plus, we can make sure you’re scheduled with the same staff and doctor to ensure a seamless routine for your family. 

 

  • Oral Health. A lot can change in 6 months, especially in the growing body of a child. With toddlers, new teeth sprout, molars come in and jaws continue to grow. Older children start losing teeth and their permanent set comes in. It’s important to make sure a dental professional is keeping an eye on your child’s growth to spot any irregularities or cavities that need to be addressed. 
  • Good Habits. Teaching your kids early about the importance of prioritizing their health is key, and that includes taking care of their smiles. You’ll be setting them up for life with good habits.

If you’re reading this thinking to yourself - “Oh no, I’m so behind, I haven’t even brought my kid to the dentist yet!” - don’t worry, you’re not alone. Ideally, we like to see children for their first dental visit around the age of one, but if your youngster is older than that, don’t worry, we can get you and your child all caught up! 

Know that by coming to Quince Orchard Dental Care you’ll be putting your child’s oral health in great hands. Pediatric dentists specialize in kids - that means more than just a focus, they spend an extra 2-3 years in graduate school to understand the ins and outs of children’s oral health.
