What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Providing our children with the best health care options is essential to ensure they live a long and healthy life—oral health is another important aspect that parents need to be aware of early in their child’s life.

Pediatric dentistry is for children ages 6 months (or presence of the first tooth) to teens, and they should be taken to a dentist who received special training in pediatric oral care and treatment. Our very own, Dr. Jasmie Yesil D.D.S., has over 15 years of experience in Pediatric Dentistry, and will make sure your child feels at ease during their launching visits to the dentist’s office.

During an initial visit, your child will receive an assessment to establish oral care needs. At Valley Dental Group, assessments may include dietary assessment questionnaire, clinical radiographic exam, and/or Dental Caries risk assessment. Furthermore, Dr. Yesil may discuss child’s fears or anxiety with the parent(s) prior to any treatment to be certain that you child is comfortable first.

Early dental care is important in assuring your child receives proper supervision of oral health until they reach adulthood. It is recommended that children be taken to their pediatric dentist every six months to prevent oral decay, diseases, and to provide early repairs, such as proper bite. In addition, the pediatric dentist can build a foundation to educate and enhance dental health.
