Medicaid Accepted Pediatric & Children's Dentist Lathrup Village & Southfield Michigan - pediatric-dentist-serviceWe Love Seeing Little Smiles at Affordable Dental Care

When it comes to children, we understand that a dentist’s office can be a frightening place to visit – many adults still get nervous at the thought of treatment! Here at Affordable Dental Care in Lathrup Village, MI, our staff has experience handling the unique, often finicky needs of little smiles.

After all, we want your son or daughter to have a good relationship with oral health care that will last for years to come! With the help of our children’s dentistry services, we can ensure that their pearly whites stay healthy and happy in an environment that’s completely comfortable and welcoming.

Gentle Treatments and Friendly Faces Help Appointments Go Smoothly

We recommend that children come in for their first appointment at our office when they’re around the age of three years old; of course, if a developmental problem or dental emergency occurs before then, please bring them in as soon as possible. We’ve discovered over time that children are often frightened by new or unfamiliar settings. That’s why we recommend that you bring them in with you to your own appointments so that they can become accustomed to the appearance of our offices and the faces of our staff members. Once they come in for their first check-up, we’ll carefully inspect their teeth one by one, as well as the health of their gums. We can even show you effective oral hygiene techniques that you can pass on to your child once they’re old enough.

In addition, we can offer other treatments that can help protect their oral health as their teeth grow, such as fluoride supplements, which strengthen tooth enamel and help protect them from cavities, and dental sealants, which cover hard-to-reach back teeth in a way that keeps them safe from pesky decay. These treatments are quick and relatively simple, and they can help your son or daughter avoid decay in their little smiles!
