At Northwest Children’s Dentistry, we pride ourselves on emphasizing prevention and good dental hygiene. Having good dental habits will go a long ways to avoid any procedures at our office. But even the most vigilant parent will sometimes have a child who needs a dental treatment.
In many cases, sedation is not needed for dental procedures. However, if your child has a high need for a procedure and has trouble sitting still, has low pain tolerance, has special needs, or depending on the treatment, we may recommend sedation. Sedation dentistry is safe and endorsed by the American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
It’s a common stereotype that people are afraid to go the dentist. Add onto the fact that you might be taking a toddler or young child to see the dentist, and you might dread the appointment more than your child. But here at Northwest Children’s Dentistry, we are trained pediatric dentists who take pride in making you and your child comfortable each time they visit the dentist. We believe that positive experiences will encourage kids to want to return, which in turn increases the likelihood that your child will maintain healthy teeth over a lifetime.
At Northwest Children’s Dentistry, we pride ourselves in providing top quality dental care for your child. We want our little patients to have a positive experience in our office so they will want to return again. This is why we carefully choose the pediatric dental words we use around kids, and we always spend extra time with parents explaining any and all questions.
