Pediatric Dentistry Services in Fort Smith and Rogers, AR
Good Oral Habits Start Young
We love our youngest patients and are here to make their dental experiences fun and educational.
Preventive care is one of our top priorities at Parklane Family Dental in Fort Smith and Rogers, Arkansas. Bringing your child in for routine dental cleanings and examinations is the best way to prevent him or her from having major dental issues. Your dentist will catch small concerns before they become big problems and will set your child up for a healthy smile that looks great into adulthood.
If a child has had 4 or 5 visits at an early age with little more than dental check ups, you could imagine how much easier it will be on both parent and child if they need to have a more involved procedure in the future. They will know and trust the dentist and his staff, not to mention that problems can be caught earlier and be able to be fixed more easily and less expensively.
Generally, dentist begin seeing children in our office around the age of six, but we will see children of any age making us the perfect option for even the youngest patients! Really, the earlier you can get your child in to a dentist for a “happy visit” the better. As soon as a child has teeth, he or she is old enough to go to a pediatric dentist. Bringing a child in at an early age allows him or her to get comfortable with the sounds, smells, and sights of a dental office.
Your Child's First Visit
At your child’s first visit, we will help familiarize them with our dental office so they feel completely comfortable. We will show them their teeth in the mirror, take them for a ride in the chair, and brush their teeth. That way, when it is time for their dental cleanings and other regular care to start, everything is familiar.
