Oral Health and Dental Care for Children
We are Roseville dentists who understand that healthy teeth and gums are essential for your child’s successful development into a happy adult. Fountains Dental Excellence provides the best children’s dental care available, with the highest standards of professionalism.
We are also Roseville parents, who understand that a child’s relationship with a caring and kind dental team will set the tone for both present and future interactions with dental professionals. Establishing good feelings about dentists and dental care will help your child develop good dental habits that last a lifetime.
Our highly skilled, friendly dentists and support staff provide basic and advanced children’s dental care in a safe, comfortable environment, with the latest technologies in dental treatment. We are you partners in keeping your child’s beautiful smile, which is a reflection of a happy and healthy child!
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
At your first visit in our Roseville dental office, we will review your child’s health history form and answer any questions you have. We will perform a simple head and neck exam and then evaluate the health of your child’s teeth, gums and bite. We will also review the daily routine of brushing and flossing and give you a cavity prevention kit to use at home.
Fluoride varnish can be applied and digital x-rays taken, depending on your child’s age and results of the exam. If your child is very young, we may not do much more than a short exam and blow up a balloon, with a simple goal of exposing your child to this new environment: the sights, sounds and smells of a dental office.
Before your child’s first dental visit, we advise you to talk to your child about going to the dentist in positive terms. You can practice counting one another’s teeth and reading children’s books about going to the dentist, such as Just Going to the Dentist by Mercer Mayer.
