Valley Dental Works Kids
Conveniently located to serve Portland

Welcome to Valley Dental Works Kids! Our goal is to set the stage for a lifetime of healthy smiles by establishing good dietary and oral hygiene habits early, treating dental problems when they first appear and providing positive experiences. At your child’s first appointment, we will only x-ray (if possible) examine, clean and apply a fluoride varnish to your child’s teeth. Our doctors will discuss with you their findings and any treatment recommendations. You are invited to ask any and all questions you may have about your child’s teeth and their care.

Importance of Early Dental Care

The importance of early dental care in preserving children’s oral health and overall well-being cannot be overstated. Our dentists recommend regular checkups every two years and within six months of the first tooth eruption to address potential dental problems early on. Establishing healthy habits at a young age is crucial to preventing tooth decay and other dental issues.

The Importance of Children’s Dentistry

Our dentists are the ideal choice for meeting your child’s oral hygiene needs. We are highly experienced when it comes to treating children’s dental health throughout all stages of development.

Dentists recommend that children see a dentist every two years and within six months of their first tooth eruption. Tooth decay is very widespread in today’s youth, who are exposed to a variety of dental problems. Dentists teach kids proper oral care and help to build healthy habits at a young age.

What to Expect at Appointments

At children’s dentistry appointments, children must always be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The medical history of your child will be reviewed and discussed during the meeting. The dentist will perform a thorough examination and discuss your child’s oral health issues, as well as the treatments we can provide.

The dentist will explain the stages of children’s dentistry to the parents. This will include an in-depth review of the child’s behavior, dental fears, and dental health.

In children’s dentistry, effective communication with the child is critical. Proper communication will lead the child to develop a positive attitude towards dentistry. It will be easier for the child to understand if the parents show them what to do. Whether or not the parents should be in the room during dental procedures will be decided by the dentist.
