Dental Associates For Kids Only
is a specialty dental clinic that provides prevention and treatment of oral health for children. Our patients include
infants, children, and adolescents from the surrounding areas and Scottsdale
. We realize each child is unique and each child deserves the best in dental care.
Dental care should begin prior to the first tooth. A
good practice is cleaning your infant's gums after feeding. You should start
using a baby toothbrush once the first tooth appears. It isn't necessary to use
toothpaste at this time as a toothbrush moistened with water is sufficient. You
can introduce toothpaste after more teeth appear. It is advised to use what we
call a thin “smear layer” of
Your infant's first
dental visit should be around six months or after the appearance of the first
tooth, whichever comes first. During your first visit our board certified
pediatric dentist will evaluate your baby's oral health and discuss the best
practices to care for your infant's teeth.
Your child is unique and has their own personality
and ability to understand oral health care. We take a kid friendly approach
when explaining the different procedures. Dr. Veneberg has a great sense and
aptitude to understand each child's comfort level. The comfort level will help
determine the treatment plan for your child. Dr. Veneberg's goal is to make
each and every experience at the dentist a positive experience.
Your child should have regular dental visits twice a
year (every six months) for cleanings and routine exams. We also suggest your
child receive fluoride treatments during these visits. We will discuss the best
treatment options for your child's needs.
Proper dental care is very important for your
growing child. We feel each child deserves the best chance for a long life with
a beautiful smile and proper oral health. As your child develops permanent
teeth your child should continue regular dental visits. It is recommended for
your teen to have routine dental screenings every six months. Good oral hygiene
practices at home include regular brushing and flossing.
