Making Sure Your Young Family Members Have The Best Smiles
We offer full pediatric dentistry services, including dental cleanings and exams, to ensure your child’s teeth and gums remain in great shape.
Dr. DiBona likes to see patients younger than 7 to start evaluating whether early orthodontic intervention is necessary. We can catch signs of bite problems and prepare your child for the treatment ahead.
When possible, we will do what we can to help guide your child’s teeth to grow in correctly and straight.
Ensuring Your Child’s First Dental Visit Is A Great One
In addition to gentle dental care and a friendly atmosphere, we provide the following for your child’s first visit:
- Movie/video glasses with headphones so they can be entertained (and happily distracted)
- Sunglasses if the overhead lights bother their eyes
- A certificate and a prize they can choose from our toy box once their treatment is done
Helping Parents With Thumb-Sucking & Teething
Thumb sucking can be a frustrating habit for parents to try and break. If your child is left to suck his or her thumb for too long, it can lead to a condition known as “tongue thrust,” which can impair their speech. Dr. DiBona can provide your child with a comfortable oral appliance to help prevent thumb sucking.
Dr. DiBona also offers counseling on how to handle teething. If you’re losing sleep or dealing with a fussy child during the day, she will provide excellent pointers on how to provide relief for everybody in the house!
