Children’s Dentistry FAQs

Cosmetic Dentistry

Redford Dental Care in Carmichael, CA is a comprehensive dental service and we are glad to offer children’s dentistry and pediatric dentistry to our youngest patients. As your trusted dentist in Carmichael, we understand that you might have many questions and concerns about this matter, and we offer the following children’s dentistry FAQs to help.

How old should my kids be when they first visit a children’s dentist?

Though many parents are surprised to read this answer in children’s dentistry FAQs, it is when your child’s first tooth emerges. This is an ideal time to get kids familiar with a dental office, our dental team and to allow us to get a look at how their teeth are developing. You can hold off until their first birthday, but don’t wait much longer than that as it is important they have no anxiety or upset about dental care.

What can we expect during our visits?

This is one of the most significant of the children’s dentistry FAQs. During your first visit, we do almost nothing except speak with you, take a quick look in your child’s mouth to ensure optimal oral health, and answer your questions about oral hygiene. We might provide you with a first toothbrush or paste and ensure your child had an enjoyable time during the visit. Later visits will be for gentle exams and cleanings as well as any treatment needed.

How many visits should we book each year?

As your family dentist, we suggest you book your twice annual cleaning and exams to coincide with your child’s visits. If your child has special oral health issues, we may need to see them more often.

  • A great family operation (pun intended). I have been a patient of Dr. Davey for a long time and recently had an emergency and the staff and Dr. Davey handled it very well for me and I'm no longer in pain. Tooth infections are a bear to deal with. Thanks again Dr. Davey and staff.
