Dentistry For Kids | Los Gatos Family Dentistry
At Los Gatos Family Dentistry, we want to provide dental services for your whole family! So we naturally offer Los Gatos dentistry for children as young as three years old.
We understand that you and your child might be nervous at her first dental visit. Our goal as a Los Gatos dentist providing care to children is to make each and every visit a fun and positive experience. If your family is already receiving care with us, we recommend you bring your little one to your next cleaning appointment beginning at the age of 3. The goal is to familiarize her with the office and our tools prior to her visit by playing with our toys or watching an older sibling get his teeth counted or tickled.
If you are new to the practice, a first time kid’s dental visit for a 3-5 year old might consist of simply sitting in the dental chair and touching “Mr. Thirsty” and “Mr. Tickles”. How much we do will be based on your child’s comfort level. Rest assured that we will only do what feels comfortable to your child, because our Los Gatos dentistry for children is built on helping kids to feel positive about a visit to the dentist!
Our goal is to help your child establish healthy dental habits at an early age, and we do this by educating you and your child. Your involvement in your child’s oral health is a key component to helping your child develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. At Los Gatos Family Dentistry we are here to help every step of the way.
