Children’s Dentistry in Hillsborough, NJ
Even Little Smiles Need Attention, and You’ll Find It at Dubitsky Family Dental
Dr. Heather and her team provide big care to little smiles in the central New Jersey area and ensure that those you love most maintain total oral health throughout the fragile childhood years. Kids are very susceptible to oral health issues, but don’t worry – a little preventive children’s dentistry from Dubitsky Family Dental goes a long way!
What sets children’s dentistry apart from adult dentistry? One difference is that we need to make children’s dental visits extra fun if we’re going to inspire them on the path towards a lifetime of oral health. That is why we spend the earliest visits focusing on getting your child acquainted with the dental office – showing him or her the tools we use, letting him or her “ride” in the dental chair, and showing them that the dentist’s office doesn’t have to be a scary place. Often, when you talk to patients who have dental anxiety, they often remember a negative experience from their childhood; we want to combat this by giving all our little patients great first dental care experiences!
Also, children need even more protection from cavities. Adults get cavities, of course, but they are better at brushing and flossing their own teeth. Children are just learning how to perform home hygiene routines, and they often miss a spot or two. We help them out with complete cleanings and other preventive children’s dentistry treatments, such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants. A sealant covers the tooth to keep out the things that cause cavities, while fluoride strengthens tooth enamel. We also want to protect their teeth from sports-related injuries so we offer custom athletic mouthguards as well. As children get older, we may add further treatments to their dental care as needed to ensure great, healthy smiles.
If your child does get a cavity, we can fill it. If bigger problems develop and your son or daughter needs to see a specialist instead, we will be happy to refer him or her to a pediatric dentist in the area with special knowledge of children’s mouths. While we are a full-service family dental office and adore seeing entire families, we know that children’s precious smiles deserve the best treatment they can get. Let us be the “home base” for your child’s children’s dentistry needs.
One thing that parents love about Dubitsky Family Dental is our hours. We offer evening hours until 7 pm two nights per week, and we are open one full Saturday of every month as well. This means that finding the time for your children’s dentistry is even easier than ever before.
