We believe that regular oral health maintenance is a sound investment in your child’s overall health. To maintain optimum oral health, we recommend that your child be seen every six months for a continuing care appointment that includes an oral examination, a cleaning, the application of fluoride, and any necessary radiographs (x-rays). Preventive care will help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. At continuing care time you will be asked to update your child’s dental, medical, and social history which may have changed since the last visit. We will examine and treat your child as we did at the first visit and discuss the findings with you.
We’ve designed our office to treat infants, children, teenagers, and children with special needs. Home-care recommendations and instructions will be provided based on your child’s individual needs. If your child requires special care due to a specific concern, please let us know prior to their appointment so that we can be sure to accommodate them.
In addition to the oral hygiene instructions, preventative care tips, and nutritional consult you will receive for your child, feel free to ask the doctor or assistants about the materials used in the practice. Our office utilizes the latest pediatric dental technology such as high-speed digital x-rays and digital photographs, quiet electric hand pieces and dental instruments, and modern diagnosing techniques. Dr. Michelle uses bio-compatible, non-metal, BPA-free materials for all sealants and fillings.
Before being attached to our dental delivery units BPA-free water container, all of the water used in the practice is distilled twice a day through a patented water distiller that removes all harmful minerals, chemicals, bacteria and viruses; we do not use public plumbing for our patient’s water supply. Additionally, our office uses digital x-rays; digital x-rays reduces radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
To reduce our carbon footprint, we use state-of-the-art dental technology to minimize toxic pollution and water waste. Biodegradable sterilization solutions are used to clean examination areas and our play areas. Please feel free to call or or email us with any questions/concerns you may have.
