For Children Ages 6-12
For older kids and young teens.
This is an interesting time for teeth. In some cases, kids have what we call mixed dentition, a period when baby teeth and permanent teeth are all hanging out together.
The first visit is similar to our toddlers and tykes in that we determine the need for x-rays, cleaning, and fluoride treatment. Following this routine we will work more closely with your child to help them tend to their teeth independently. This is an age where your child will be gaining more independence and control. Our goals are to impress healthy dental habits and work with your child on positive youth development.
Topics that will be covered include sealants, braces, mouth trauma, substance abuse counseling, and tooth whitening.
