Children's Dentistry in
Plantation

Here at Plantation Dental Care, we generally recommend that you bring your child in by the time their first tooth has erupted. Not only does this help us to diagnose any dental problems early on, but it also encourages both you and your child to form a bond with the dentist and to feel relaxed within the dental environment.

Children's Dentistry in Plantation

Early visits to the dentist can often avoid the need for more complicated procedures later on. It’s also a good idea to visit a pediatrician if your child suffers from any medical conditions which could mean they’re at high risk of developing dental problems.

By visiting our office early on, you can learn the best oral hygiene practices for your child, which include correct tooth brushing, the avoidance of night time bottles of fruit juice or formula, and a healthy diet to promote good oral health. Dental problems can arise at a tender age due to the level of sugar contained in our food which is why an early visit is so important for your child.

The First Visit

Your child’s first dental visit will consist of a consultation which is designed to help you understand your child’s oral health and also addresses the best way to care for your child’s dental needs. This will be followed by a full dental examination and, in the case of older children, X-rays may be taken. It’s important therefore that an adult who is familiar with your child’s medical background and dental habits accompanies them to the clinic.

Accidents do happen which is why we offer emergency appointments. It’s important to seek help as quickly as possible since the loss of a baby tooth through an accident or trauma can affect the adult tooth which is hidden beneath.

In the event that your child may need a filling, our dentist will ensure that your child is kept as comfortable as possible and will fill the tooth with a type of filling material which is considered most suitable.

I had broken my tooth and this was the nearest place to where I live that’s open on Friday. They are so nice and very helpful here. I love this place and I’m glad google pointed me their way.

As much as I hate any kind of dental work, the people at Plantation Dental Care are so gentle and sweet and wonderful! Thank you PDC! I am so happy that my mom introduced me to you all and can't wait to get my children and husband in as your patients as well! The office is clean and light and bright with such a happy atmosphere. There equipment is pretty high tech too! I've been seeing the same dentist for over 30 years but they are just too far for me to travel. I was so nervous to try someplace new but am so happy I finally did!
