According to the American Dental Association, a child’s first dental exam with a pediatric dentist should happen soon after the first baby tooth comes in, or by the time the child turns 1 year old. Even though baby’s first teeth are temporary, getting an early start on excellent dental hygiene practices will help your child enjoy good oral health for life.
What Is a Children’s Dentist?
A children’s dentist specializes in dentistry that focuses on providing gentle and compassionate dental care to children from infancy through adolescence. At East Wind Dental Care, Hillsboro children’s dentist Dr. Merat Ostovar understands the unique needs of young, vulnerable primary (baby) teeth and how best to preserve your child’s oral health as they grow and develop.
Child development and psychology are key components of children’s dentistry. Dr. Ostovar creates an environment that is warm, fun, and inviting for little ones, and he knows how to provide treatments in a way that helps children avoid developing dental phobias, so they can look forward to their regular visits to our office.
