Bringing your children to the dentist when they are young is crucial for their development, as well as the health of their teeth now and when they become adults. Good habits are forged at an early age, and bringing your child to the dentist routinely is a good habit that you will definitely want to form. Sadly, many children are afraid of the dentist, often because they have bad experiences at the dentist. Inevitably, going to visit the dentist becomes a source of agony and stress for children, and they quit going altogether in their teens.
Not only is it important to bring your children to the dentist routinely, but it is also important to select the right dentist. Let's face it; children can be a handful and not every dentist is good at making children feel safe and comfortable. Further, getting children to engage in their dental treatment and practice proper brushing and flossing habits at home isn't always easy. That's why more parents are bringing the children to us when they need a children's dentist in Kent, WA.

Children Have Different Needs
We encourage you to start bringing your children to the dentist between the ages of 9 months and one year. Universal Dental Care provides preventative and invasive oral care for children. Problems are often identifiable at a very young age, and the sooner we can identify issues like tongue thrust, tongue ties, baby bottle tooth decay, enamel hypoplasia, and other oral conditions that often plague children, the faster and the better we can fix the problem.
Sadly, many children incur developmental and growth issues that are related to the jaw, mouth, head, or face, which could be avoided with proper dental care. Our dentists are trained to identify tooth eruption patterns. We can properly and safely administer anesthesia and sedation as needed.
