Pediatric Dentistry on Capitol Hill

happy-pediatric-patientsChildren are not just small adults. They are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam. With our pediatric services – infancy through the teen years – we are dedicated to making sure your child has the best experience possible. We recommend starting with our Sights and Sounds program which is designed to slowly introduce your young child to our dental office and staff.

In Sights and Sounds, children under the age of three years old accompany their parents and siblings to dental appointments to experience the sights and sounds of a dental office. This allows the child to become comfortable with the dental hygienist and doctor. We understand that children are uncomfortable when the dental team is behind a mouth mask and magnifying glasses.

After a few appointments with family members, the child accepts the routine and can follow directions and sit for their own appointment. Many look forward to their trips to the dentist!

Let’s talk about what you expect and need in a dentist during your introductory dental exam
