Pediatric Dentist Q & A

What is a pediatric dentist?

At Sweet Tooth Children’s Dentistry, catering to children is the top priority!

Pediatric dental care goes far beyond good medicine. By creating a welcoming atmosphere with a knowledgeable and friendly staff, Dr. Brown ensures that her young patients feel at ease the moment they walk through the door. Dr. Brown’s practice includes:

  • A playhouse, murals, and toys in the waiting room
  • Colorful and friendly decor
  • TVs mounted on the walls and ceilings that play kids’ movies during treatments

Dr. Brown believes that taking the fear and anxiety out of dentistry at an early age lays the groundwork for good future oral health in children. Dr. Brown and her staff take the time with each young patient -- and their parents -- to explain how to properly care for their teeth while creating a lasting bond of trust.

When should I start bringing my child to a dentist?

When your child’s first tooth comes in, usually around the age of one year, you should make an appointment at Sweet Tooth Children’s Dentistry. Baby teeth come in quickly after the first -- there are 20 in all -- and Dr. Brown can monitor their progress, ensuring that no problems crop up.

After your first visit, Dr. Brown recommends coming in every six months for regular checkups and cleanings.

What dental care does my child need?

Your child’s baby teeth may not be permanent, but they play a critical role in future oral health. Baby teeth perform the following:

  • Teach your child how to chew
  • Aid in speech
  • Create pathways for permanent teeth

While your child grows, they rely on these teeth for many years as permanent teeth develop, so Dr. Brown provides the following services to protect them:

  • Sealant to make your child’s teeth easier to clean and to prevent cavities
  • Fluoride treatments to strengthen teeth
  • Space maintainers if a baby tooth is extracted
  • Fillings and crowns to preserve decayed teeth

By providing the best care for primary teeth, Dr. Brown ensures the future success of your child’s permanent teeth.
