At what age should children start seeing a dentist? Do they need to see a specialist in pediatric dentistry? Can I bring my child to Sioux Center Dental?
As a general dental office, we see patients from age 0 - 110 years young! We love to see families and it often works well for families to all come in together. It can be easier to coordinate appointments and sometimes it’s helpful for the children to watch and observe their parents getting their teeth cleaned to know that it isn’t a scary experience. We make it fun, interesting, educational, and your child will get a prize at the end! As a general dental office, we really enjoy taking care of your whole family.
There is definitely a time and place for pediatric dentistry specialists. For patients who have high anxiety or a lot of dental problems, pediatric dentists are exceptionally talented and well trained to take care of those problems. For the average child who may have 1-2 cavities or has a loose baby tooth, general dentists are well suited to care for them! If you’re unsure if your child needs a lot of dental work, please call our office to schedule an appointment and we will create a comprehensive treatment plan to get your child on the right track for their oral health.
