Just for Kids
Like a pediatrician cares for your child's medical health, a Chattanooga pediatric dentist has the training to care for your child's oral health and make sure they have a positive dental experience.
Dental anxiety is common, but it doesn’t have to stop your child from getting the care they deserve. Sedation dentistry can ease their fears as they maintain a healthy smile!
Prepare Your Child to Smile for Life
Pediatric dentists have an additional two years of training after dental school to learn how to take care of younger patients. They understand the growth and development of children and how to adjust to each child to ensure their early dental experiences are positive and fun!
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and our Team Popp dentists recommend a child's first dental visit when the baby teeth begin erupting or by their first birthday. At this time, we'll teach you about your children's oral care, fluoride, and diet guidance and what you can expect as more teeth erupt and your child's dental growth and development progress.
If your child is older but has not had a dental check-up, it's never too late to start. At our two offices in Chattanooga, we teach older children the healthy way to take care of their teeth and other preventive measures.
Talking to Your Child about the Dentist
The first visit to a Chattanooga dentist can be scary for some children, so it's important to help prepare them ahead of time. Keep everything you say to your child about visiting the dentist positive and simple!
Say things like:
- "The dentist is going to count and look at your teeth!"
- "The doctor will take some pictures of your teeth and clean them really well!"
Every child is unique, and procedures will vary depending on their needs. At Team Popp Dental, your child will enjoy customized treatment and care for the best experience possible. Let us help put your child on a path to a beautiful, healthy smile!
