You teach your child healthy habits every day, but are you extending those habits to include their oral health? If your children learn early to brush, floss and see a dentist, it can lead to a lifetime of healthy teeth and a beautiful smile they have confidence in. When you have a choice between a regular dentist and a pediatric dentist, Dr. Cotey offers full range dental services for children to ensure that their experience is a pleasant one.
A Focus on Preventative Care
Most children still have their baby teeth, and extensive procedures may not be necessary like they would be if the teeth were permanent. Pediatric dentistry takes a preventative approach to ensure that your kids are educated and prepared when it comes to taking care of their teeth. Dr. Cotey also has the latest information and research regarding how preventative treatments apply to children.
Smaller Equipment and Relaxed Atmosphere
The dentist’s office can be a scary place to be for a small child. Many children balk when someone wants to look in their mouth. We have smaller equipment to ensure that the experience is as comfortable as possible. Our office is also full of décor that soothes and distractions that allow your children to take their minds off the procedure.
We want kids to enjoy coming to the dentist, and do all we can to make it a positive experience. If your child enjoys coming to the dentist when they are small, it is likely to translate into healthier habits as they get older.
Specializing in Children’s Conditions
Dr. Cotey has specific training that allows her to focus on developing teeth. Children have unique problems with their gums and often deal with cavities. They also struggle as their teeth develop and come in, and we are prepared to watch for potential problems and head them off before they get out of control.
