Choosing a dentist isn’t just an individual choice, especially if you have a family! At Highlands Ranch Smiles, we love treating everyone from the youngest member in your family all the way on up! If you’re looking for comprehensive, thorough, and caring service for the whole family, we’d love to be your oral care home!
Great family dental care isn’t just about the services we provide to you – it’s also about creating a great atmosphere for all your care needs. Dental care is for a lifetime, and by helping your children establish great practices at an early age, we’ll ensure their future health as well!
Pediatric Dental Care
For many parents, when a child should first see the dentist is a common question. It can be difficult when to determine the best time, especially if you’ve never cared for a child before!
The general rule for ensuring your child’s dental health is to have them come in as soon as their first tooth erupts, or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Initial care for your youngest will just involve checking to be sure that teeth are coming in properly and are healthy. As teeth continue to come in, we’ll add X-rays, cleanings, preventive techniques, and other practices to help your child grow into healthy teeth and good habits.
You may not realize it, but keeping baby teeth healthy is just as important as preserving adult teeth. If anything goes wrong with your child’s first set of teeth, they may have complications in the future, especially if a baby tooth is lost prematurely due to tooth decay! Our pediatric services are all about keeping your child healthy from their first tooth onward!
Helping Your Family Love the Dentist
Health care habits, including dentistry, are established at a young age. If your child doesn’t grow accustomed to regular care, they may end up scared of the dentist and avoiding appointments as adults – a recipe for disaster!
We like to start your child’s dental experience before their first appointment. The best way to get your child comfortable with our office is to bring them in for some of your appointments! By showing them that dental care is a regular part of your life, you can help them understand how important it is for them, too. We’ll also get a chance to meet your young ones and help them feel comfortable in our office.
We’ll gladly show your child any of the dental tools and facilities they’re curious about – we want to make their care as easy and worry-free as possible! Dr. Haynes has been seeing young patients for years and loves being able to help children learn not only that the dentist doesn’t have to be scary, but also great habits that will keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime.
At our Highlands Ranch office, we gladly serve every member of the family. If you’re ready to get quality care in one convenient location, call our office today at 720-644-8186! You can also request an appointment for you or your child using our online form. We’ll see you soon!
