At Roseville Dental Center, we believe that children need to be treated differently than adult patients do. We use kid-friendly terms, work at a slower pace, and allow plenty of time for any questions your little ones may have. We know that their experiences at our office will shape the way they view dental visits for many years to come, and we take that responsibility seriously.
First Visit by First Birthday
If you're not sure when to bring your child in for his or her first checkup, it might be sooner than you think! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children establish a dental home by their first birthday, or no later than the eruption of their first tooth.
Children’s Dental Services
Just as our younger patients have unique needs for communication, they also have their own concerns when it comes to dental treatment. We offer a complete range of dental services for toddlers, teens, and every age in between. We strive to be your Roseville family dentist!
Checkups & Cleanings
You’re more than welcome to accompany your child to the treatment area while he or she gets familiar with our office. Education is empowering, so we take every opportunity we can to make your child’s visit a learning experience. We even let kids touch some of the instruments so they feel less nervous!
Dental sealants fill in the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, an area where food particles commonly get caught and cause cavities. Dr. Vong can apply sealants quickly with no shots or drilling, effectively protecting your child’s teeth for years.
Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and has even been proven to help reverse the early stages of decay. Patients of all ages can benefit from fluoride exposure—especially kids—so Dr. Vong usually recommends ending each cleaning by brushing on a fluoride varnish.
Tooth-colored fillings require less preparation than traditional metal fillings, which means fewer shots and less drilling. They’re also very natural-looking, so you won't even notice a difference in the appearance of your child's smile.
