It’s important for children to visit their local dentist just as often as adults do (twice each year) for ongoing oral health care – in fact, it may be MORE important because establishing a positive relationship with a dental team from a young age can influence your outlook on dentistry for many years to come! Dr. Dina Cocco and the rest of our staff members are as friendly as they come, promoting comfort and kindness every step of the way through your loved one’s care. We love giving children new reasons to smile, and we hope you’ll bring the whole family to visit us. Contact our Ann Arbor, MI location today to schedule an appointment!
At every stage of your child’s growth – from the very first baby tooth to the arrival of their wisdom teeth – our team will be personalizing our approach to fit their needs, their comfort level, and their emotional maturity. We’ll start slow by providing very gentle checkups before slowly progressing into cleanings and other services that are designed to prevent problems as they grow. For instance, dental sealants and fluoride treatment are a big part of children’s dentistry, as they help growing smiles stay safe from decay and become stronger.
When it comes to helping your child feel comfortable here in our Ann Arbor office, it’s important to stay positive about the experience. Maybe let them tag along on an older sibling’s visit so that they see there’s nothing to be afraid of, or bring along a favorite toy that they can hold onto when they’re nervous. Meanwhile, our team will be doing everything we can to make them smile and laugh from the beginning of their appointment to the end. We look forward to building a warm and trusting relationship with your son or daughter that hopefully lasts for years to come!
