What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is crucial to ensure children grow up to have healthy, strong smiles. Children as young as one or two years old should begin to see a dentist for routine bi-annual appointments. Regular dental checkups can help check for signs of decay and other intra-oral problems, as well as document the growth and development of your children’s teeth. We aim to make your child’s appointment with us as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
Why is Pediatric Dentistry needed?
When your child becomes used to visiting the dentist, they will be less likely to experience fear in the office. When your child is comfortable coming to the office regularly, small problems can be detected and even prevented so that they cannot get worse. With good preventative care, the need for more invasive procedures is eliminated, which can be frightening to many kids. Dr. Furman is dedicated to working with children of all ages to provide the care that they need to maintain a healthy smile for life.
