At The Elmwood Dental Group LLC, we pride ourselves on being a family dental practice. We want to ensure that all members of the family are receiving the best possible dental care, which is why we suggest bringing in your children as early as possible. We feel that with the proper educational tools, good oral hygiene starting as early as infancy, and our dental care, we can work together to keep your child’s teeth free of disease and decay.

Importance of Pediatric Dentistry

Primary or 'baby' teeth begin to surface during the first six months of life. By age six or seven you child will begin to lose their first set of teeth, and their secondary (permanent) teeth will begin to show. Without regular visits and proper oral hygiene, your child may develop possible oral decay or dental diseases. To prevent this, we provide a wide variety of treatments, some of which include:
  • Infant oral health exams
  • Habit counseling that can help reduce thumb sucking and pacifier use
  • Preventive procedures such as teeth cleanings and fluoride treatments
  • Repairing tooth cavities or dental injuries (fractured, displaced, or knocked-out teeth)
  • Diagnosis and management of oral conditions and dental diseases
  • Assessment and early treatment of crooked or misaligned teeth

We offer you the professional advice you need to take care of your child’s teeth at home. We will teach you how to properly floss and brush their teeth, and provide you with any additional information specific to your child’s needs. We address daily dietary habits and the harmful effects of foods rich in starch and sugar. As your child gets older, we pass this information off to them, setting the foundation for good oral hygiene practices that will follow them into adulthood.
At The Elmwood Dental Group LLC, our office is both parking and wheel chair accessible.
