to Papillion Pediatric Dentistry

Come Visit!

At Papillion Pediatric Dentistry, we’d love to look after the dental needs of your little ones! It’s so important to make sure your child has positive dental experiences so they can grow up with a healthy smile and zero fear of the dentist. Dr.Jane and our team knows how to make appointments fun and easy even for our younger patients, and they always make sure to work with a gentle touch.

A child’s first dental visit is an important one and we strive to make every child comfortable and relaxed.

 

We understand choosing a dentist for your child is an important decision and we look forward to the opportunity to treat your child and address their dental needs.

Prevention.

Today, tooth decay in children is more common than any chronic illness, such as asthma and diabetes.

Education.

Prevention of dental decay begins from infancy. You cannot expect your little one to be cavity-free if you don’t take steps from the very beginning.

Exceptional Care.

Teaching your child the importance of protecting his teeth and regular pediatric dentist  visits will keep your child teeth healthy.

Why we’re loved

We always want to stress to parents the importance of getting a child ready for the first visit. It is very important to tell them the positive points of a dental visit and not to scare them. We strive to make each child’s first visit a good and memorable one, so that they can develop a life long interest in maintaining their oral health.

The First Visit
The First Visit:

A child’s first dental visit is an important one. We recommend that your child’s first visit be made by at least age one, and this is supported by The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). This visit provides time-critical opportunities to begin a preventative oral health program and to help reduce the risk of your child getting cavities. This visit allows us to help educate you as the parent and provide nutritional counseling and create a preventative oral plan. In addition, it is important to establish a dental home for your child, so that if an emergency arises, the child will be treated in a familiar place with all the needed medical forms on record.
What to expect on the first visit:

A tour of the office with a member of our staff to familiarize your child with the dental equipment used.
A comprehensive exam
Cleaning of the teeth and fluoride application
Digital X-rays (We like to call them pictures) depending on need.
Fluoride application
Detailed treatment plan
Preventative oral hygiene plan emphasizing brushing/flossing techniques, toothbrush selection, diet, habits, and need for fluoride supplementation.
Additional Comments:

On your child’s first dental visit, we encourage parents to accompany their child. This gives the parent the opportunity to become familiar with the practice and the Doctor’s style. It also lets the child have a familiar hand to hold during their first visit.
