Paediatric Dentistry is the branch of dentistry dealing with children. We strongly feel that pediatric dental care is essential for giving children the proper foundation for a healthy life, from childhood through adolescence and beyond.
It is important to establish an ongoing relationship between the dentist and patient – referring to this as the patient’s “dental home”.
Early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay, maintaining oral health, modifying unusual habits, and treating as needed and as simply as possible.
Parents are given a program of preventative home care (brushing/flossing/fluorides), a caries risk assessment, information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits, advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counseling, and information on growth and development.
