Pediatric Dentistry Goshen NY
Orange County Pediatric Dentistry emphasizes prevention and dental education in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. This creates a positive dental outlook as your child grows and develops. When pediatric dental problems are detected early, intervention may reduce or avoid future dental problems.
When Should My Child Start Seeing the Dentist?
Orange County Pediatric Dentistry, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), recommends that your child visit the dentist by his or her first birthday or within 6 months of her or his first tooth eruption-whichever comes first.
Along with the AAPD, Dr. Olstein recommends that children in Goshen NY have a check-up every six months to prevent cavities. This also helps us to spot possible dental problems early.
Creating a Positive Experience
Dr. Olstein is committed to making sure every child has the most positive dental experience possible. At Orange County Pediatric Dentistry, we all want your child to enjoy their dental visits and help encourage a positive outlook about going to the dentist. This will help to build habits that will lead to a lifetime of good oral health.
We recommend that you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear of dentistry, such as ‘needle’, ‘shot’, ‘pull’, ‘drill’, or ‘hurt’. Our office makes a practice of using pleasant words that convey the same message but are less frightening to your child.
For Children with dental anxiety, we offer nitrous oxide gas for an additional fee. We also have TV monitors in the treatment rooms for their enjoyment. And, of course everyone gets a visit to the treasure box when they are done.
