Pediatric Dentistry

You’ll want to select a dentist who understands how to make your child feel calm and comfortable (as well as mom and dad!), and one that’s able to educate them on how to properly clean their teeth—all while making the experience enjoyable.

At Melody Dental Care, we’re proud to say that we fit the bill—and can’t wait to welcome you and your children into our care.

Here’s more about what you can expect.

Visiting Us

As soon as your child begins teething, it’s a sign that they’re ready for a quick visit to our practice. We’ll look to make sure their gums are healthy and that their teeth are erupting normally. We’ll also teach mom and dad how to properly care for their new teeth.

The first visit is quick and painless for everyone and much more of a ‘checkup’ than anything.

Care for Older Kids

When your child is ready for a traditional dental appointment, we’ll do our best to make it a fun experience! A child’s cleaning involves examining the teeth, taking digital x-rays, and screening for any oral problems that may exist. We’ll also teach them how to properly brush their teeth in a circular motion, and talk about the negative effects of too many sweets.

Helpful Tips for Parents

Finding it hard to get your child to brush accurately at home?

  • Let them pick out a themed toothbrush from the store—something with their favorite character can entice them to brush better.
  • Get a flavored toothpaste that they’ll love—children’s brands tends to have many flavors that adult brands do not.
  • Make brushing time “story time”—tell them a funny, two-minute story while they brush so it becomes something they look forward to.

Book Your Appointment Today

If you’re looking for a relaxed dental environment for your child, we’re here for you. Contact our team today to book their first appointment—or one for the whole family. We gladly welcome children from the time they begin to have their first teeth erupt to teens and beyond.
