Dentistry for Kids

Lakeshore Dental offers kids dentistry in Tempe, AZ and surrounding areas. As a family dentist, we are happy to offer dental treatment for children and adults.

When is the Right Time For Your Child’s First Dentist Visit?

When the first tooth appears, you should definitely bring your child in to see the dentist. However, even if the first tooth has not appeared, but your child has reached the age of one, you should still bring him or her in. You don’t need to wait until the first tooth has grown in all the way, either. Because teeth and gum problems can develop before the first teeth have come in, it’s a good idea to bring your youngster in either at the age of one, or when you can see the white of a tooth coming in.

Get Kids Started Early With Oral Health

When you start your kids out early visiting the dentist, it helps them to get used to the idea of having their teeth and gums examined and treated. This is important, because it can lead to a lifetime of optimal oral health!

Teaching Your Kids How to Care For Their Teeth

At Lakeshore Dental, we love to help teach your kids how to brush, floss and rinse. We feel that our part is to emphasize what you teach at home. Our dental office is well-equipped to handle all the tiny teeth and mouths that come through our office! We work hard to make all our young patients feel comfortable and relaxed.
