About Pediatric Dentistry
A gorgeous, healthy smile is important at all ages. At MINT dentistry, our goal is to provide your child a comfortable dental experience at our office in Dallas, TX, so they will develop a good impression with the dentist that lasts the rest of their life. You should schedule your child’s visits to our office two times every year for professional cleanings and pediatric dental exams. At their appointment, a board-certified dentist will examine the development of your child’s teeth, check for concerns, and educate your child on the best way to take care of their teeth. Consumers Choice has named MINT dentistry as "Best Family Dentist" two years in a row. As soon as you arrive with your child, our front staff will hand them a tablet already loaded with fun, age-appropriate games to keep them busy. Start your child off with a great smile by making an appointment at our office in Dallas, TX.
Best Candidates for Pediatric Dentistry
Children can have cavities and tooth decay as young as 24 months of age. MINT dentistry recommends scheduling your child's first visit when they are around 18 months old, so a board-certified MINT dentist can make sure there are no overbite problems or structural issues. Children usually keep their primary teeth for several years, so it's a good idea to make sure they remain in good health until their permanent teeth have grown in. This means visiting our office twice a year for exams and cleanings.
What to Expect with Pediatric Dentistry
Before our team of talented dental professionals begins your child’s dental exam, we will make sure they feel safe and comfortable. Our team will talk to your child and explain what is happening so they are part of the process. Your child will be given a pair of MINT sunglasses and asked to relax in one of our super comfy treatment chairs. A MINT dentistry team member will first perform a basic examination of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw before performing a cleaning. Dental sealants or fluoride treatments might be suggested to help protect and strengthen your child's enamel as their permanent teeth come in. Should our team identify a concern, a customized treatment plan will be created with your child’s utmost care and comfort in mind. MINT dentistry is dedicated to using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to make sure your family's dental treatments are as quick, comfortable, and effective as possible.
Pediatric Dentistry Treatment Aftercare
If one of our dental professionals detects a problem during your child’s appointment, we will ask you to schedule an appointment for a follow-up procedure. Our MINT team of dentists is experienced at providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care. If your child requires a filling for a cavity, urgent care for an injured tooth, or Invisalign®, our office is ready to help. For optimal oral health, our team of board-certified MINT dentists recommends you schedule dental cleanings in six-month intervals and dental exams once a year for every member of your family. Aftercare following a regularly scheduled dental exam or cleaning includes a dedicated at-home oral health regimen, as instructed by the MINT dentistry team.
The MINT Commitment
Annual pediatric exams and bi-annual cleanings are usually covered by your dental insurance provider. For any procedures or recommended treatments, our MINT support staff will contact your provider to calculate any additional costs. If you do not have dental insurance, we accept several payment options to help make your child's dental care easier to afford. MINT dentistry feels that a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth are priceless, so we're dedicated to helping you afford both.
