Make A Smile Pediatric Dentistry in Sacramento!
Providing you and your growing little one with extraordinary dental care is always our mission at Make a Smile pediatric dentistry in Sacramento. We are passionate about teaching all our patients about the prevention of dental disease as they grow into an adult, which starts in our fun and interactive office environment designed just for kids. Our staff at Make a Smile Children’s dental is always delighted to see infants, children, and young adults step into our office.
We guarantee that your family will love our interactive waiting room which has been designed with kids in mind! We also provide movies in treatment rooms, video games, and lots of toys to help keep them happy and feeling safe while they wait for their appointment! Each of our dental professionals go out of their way to work one on one with you and your kids, fully explaining diagnoses and providing you with a strong sense of confidence in your child’s treatment options. We do, however, encourage parents to join their children in treatment rooms if they wish to do so – just in case it would ease any anxiety coming from the patient.
Make a Smile Sacramento pediatric dentistry is welcoming to all cases: patients of a young age, children who require an extra-gentle hand with behavioral management, and kids with special needs. Our offices are always up to date with the newest dentistry technology, entertainment, and special distraction techniques. Our focus goes way beyond caring for your teeth which is why we offer a variety of sedation services including in-office nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation, and pediatric hospital dentistry.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Our Make a Smile pediatric dentistry is full of state-of-the-art technology and vastly different than the dental office you remember as a child. A positive outlook on dentistry starts with your child’s first dental care visit, and aids in successfully creating a life-long preventative plan for your little one. Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled as soon as their first tooth erupts or before their first birthday. At your kid’s initial visit, you can expect the following at our office:
- A thorough review of your child’s medical and dental care history
- Helpful tips on keeping your child’s teeth clean after nursing or
- Instruction on proper brushing techniques
- A comprehensive, non-invasive exam to check soft tissue and
- A visit to the toy chest!
You may join your child during pediatric dental treatment at any time but also welcome you to enjoy movies, toys, and video games with your other children in our reception area. If you do plan on accompanying your child during their dental treatment, try not to bring other children to that appointment, as space is limited in offices.
You should continue bringing in your child every six months following their first appointment for evaluations and professional cleanings.
Children with Special Health Care Needs
Make a Smile strives to provide the best dental care for all children. Some patients often present dentists with unique challenges, such as those with significant medical, physical, or mental disabilities. At Make a Smile, however, our staff has received special training to be able to best treat special needs patients in our practice, resulting in the formation of lasting friendships with them and their caregivers. We assure a positive pediatric dental experience to all of our special needs patients attending our dentist office.
We make efforts to significantly reduce the risk of preventative dental problems in our special needs patients by teaching them and their caregivers preventative oral health techniques. If you have any questions regarding pediatric oral health or want an appointment, please feel free to contact our office to speak with a member of our staff. If you are looking for more specialized dental care, our Arden area pediatric dentist office also offers oral surgery and orthodontic services.
