Child Dentistry

For healthy teeth and good oral hygiene habits, your child needs a fantastic first experience with the dentist.

We at Dental Associates, PC hope you’ll trust us to give your children the dental experience they deserve. When you need a pediatric dentist in Des Moines, IA, count on us.

Your Child’s First Visit

We recommend that children first visit for a dental checkup at around age 1, and begin regular visits at around age 3. When you and your child visit, we’ll do the following to ensure your child’s oral health:

  • Gently examine and clean your child’s teeth and gums.
  • Fight decay and plaque buildup by applying topical fluoride.
  • Take X-rays to check on permanent teeth.
  • Evaluate habits like thumb sucking that may affect oral health.

Our family dentists are friendly, engaging, and patient. You’ll love our child-friendly practices, and so will your kids.

Preventative Pediatric Dentists

Our first priority is your child’s comfort and health, which is why we focus on preventative care and education.

One of the most important things we do is teach children how to care for their teeth. We’ll teach your child how to brush and floss-and we’ll give you some tips and tricks to help your kids brush when they just don’t want to.

Because children are especially susceptible to tooth decay, we’ll also talk about how to eat healthily and avoid acidic or sugary foods.

You want your child to have a beautiful, white smile, and so do we. We may discuss dental sealants or other options to ensure your child’s healthy smile.
