Dentistry for Kids DuPont WA
Decaying or misshapen teeth can lead to pain and serious health conditions for a child or adolescent. In some cases, poor oral hygiene can also lead to depression as their peers ostracize them. This is why timely intervention and treatments from an experienced dentist specializing in dentistry for kids should be prioritized. Dental hygiene goes beyond regular brushing and flossing, which our dentist, Tracy Takenaka DDS, at Children's Dentistry of DuPont will tell you.
Finding a dentist specializing in dentistry for kids close to your home is vital in ensuring emergency dental cases are treated promptly. When you choose Children's Dentistry of DuPont as your local dental provider, you get faster and more convenient access to quality pediatric dental care. This reduces stress during appointments, which facilitates the healing process post-treatment.
We Specialize In Working With Children
If your child starts crying when you mention their dental appointment, a pediatric dentist can ease their fears and stress. They know how to help your child relax before and during treatments so future appointments can be more productive.
Children fear the unknown, and dental appointments are one of those. Most children and teens get anxious before they visit the dentist, but it is nothing to worry about. One of the ways that experienced pediatric dentists ease this is by explaining procedures to them in a calm and friendly tone. Your kids will understand what is happening and feel more in control of the experience, automatically reducing their fear.
As a compassionate and dedicated pediatric dentist, Tracy Takenaka DDS ensures our young patients are comfortable throughout their appointments and can come to see us without worry.
We Are Fully Licensed
Professional dentists know that their license is the key that allows them to practice. It proves they have spent several years honing their career and skills to earn the right to make a living as dentists. However, dentists who specialize in dentistry for kids require more training.
Besides advanced diagnostics, surgical procedures, and clinical management, pediatric dentists receive training in child psychology, radiology, pharmacology, child oral and facial development, and more.
Ensuring your child has a comfortable experience at the dentist should be at the top of your to-do list. One of the ways you can do that is by determining and explaining the services they can expect, especially specialized ones. A pediatric dentist has the skills, knowledge, and experience to provide these, including sealants, cleanings and fillings, and general services. We are proud to say that we provide them all and more here at Children's Dentistry of DuPont.
We Provide a Fun Environment
We provide a calm, fun, and positive environment for all children and adolescents who visit us for treatments and consultations at our DuPont, WA practice. This includes toys, coloring books, and cartoons, which they can enjoy while they wait.
We understand that a home-like and friendly environment can do more to ease a child's nervousness than anything else. The positive experience compels them to willingly return for follow-ups and future treatments. That is what we strive for here at Children's Dentistry of DuPont.
