Kid-friendly Dentistry Services in Wichita

As a parent, you want your child to enjoy wellness and the social benefits of a gorgeous smile. Help set the stage for a lifetime of oral health by starting home care and professional dental visits early. Here's a helpful checklist to find pediatric dentistry services in the Wichita area that fit your lifestyle and grow with your child.

Get recommendations. Ask family members, friends, and co-workers who they entrust with their children's dental care. Ask your pediatrician or family doctor for a recommendation. Search the internet for dentists in your area. Bear in mind that you don't have to choose a Pedodontist – a general dentist can be well-qualified to treat children, without having to change practices when the child reaches adulthood.

Check out the atmosphere. Once you've narrowed your search to a few top picks, make a visit to get a feel for the practice. Is the reception area warm and inviting with an activity area for children? Are the doctors and staff friendly in a way that your child can relate to without apprehension? Do they communicate easily at adult and child levels? If you have the opportunity, observe how they respond to a young patient who is scared or crying.

Evaluate care. The dentist should have instruments appropriately sized for little mouths. Care must include oral examinations, risk assessment (particularly for cavities for young children), and treatment – with a strong focus on prevention. In addition to general dental care, the dentist should have knowledge in managing baby-specific dental problems like thumb sucking, pacifier use, and teeth grinding. He or she should evaluate tooth development and possible need for orthodontic treatment. As your child gets older, you may need emergency care for dental sports injuries, or management of gum disease. Make sure the practice is equipped to handle those concerns.

Inquire about education. Especially important for new parents is the dentist's willingness to offer information on the effect of diet and modern beverages on your child's dental health and caring for baby teeth. Kids and teens need one-on-one instruction in brushing and flossing, with emphasis on the impact (appearance and wellness) of oral care.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
