Description

Our mission is to make kids smile and our staff is passionate about building healthy habits to last a lifetime.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR CHILDS TEETH AS A PARENT

WHY SHOULD YOU VISIT DINODENT?

DinoDent is a child focused dental practice, providing treatment in a fun and positive way. As I am a parent myself, I know how important it is to work with children in a very patient, creative and playful way.

DinoDent has a dinosaur dental chair that has a DVD player and an octopus that hides the instruments! You won't find any scary syringes here. A cute crocodile sleeve hides the syringe and the electronic dental wand takes the pain out of the prick. Come play at the dentist with a jungle-gym (coming soon), XBOX 360, DVDís and lots more!

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD CHILDREN GO FOR THEIR FIRST DENTAL VISIT?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), a child should visit the dentist at age one and other resources say when the first tooth erupts. The idea behind such an early visit is to educate parents on good oral hygiene and dietary habits. In this way the focus is made on preventative and not restorative dentistry.

Does your child have skew teeth? Have you been told to wait until all the permanent teeth are in the mouth before starting with braces (orthodontic treatment) or that your child needs to have healthy teeth pulled to make more space? In most cases it is beneficial to start early (interceptive) orthodontic treatment from as early as 7 or 8 years, but it is also very effective at a later age. This early treatment reduces the likelihood of extracting permanent teeth and jaw operations later in life. It is a cost effective and very conservative way of providing your child with a beautiful, confident smile!

OUR SERVICES

At your childs first visit, we will welcome him/her with a friendly and loving attitude. The dental reception room looks more like a playroom, so that your kids can relax and feel at home. Your child can choose a movie and watch it while we do a dental examination. DinoDent is very focused on preventative treatment, therefore we recommend a cleaning, oral hygiene and diet instructions and a fluoride treatment.
