From filings and conscious sedation to hospital dentistry, Triangle Pediatric Dentistry does it all.
The American Dental Association (ADA), The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and Triangle Pediatric Dentistry encourage establishing a “dental home” for your child by age one. A dental home at an early age can help instill good habits in children that can prevent dental issues in the future. It will also give you as a parent easy access to a dentist in the event that your or your child has a question or a dental emergency arises.
As a parent, you can take certain steps to prepare your child for their first trip to our office. If they are old enough, it’s best to inform them of the visit and reinforce that the dentist will explain all procedures while answering any questions.
Be sure to avoid over discussing the visit as this may cause your child to become anxious. Triangle Pediatric Dentistry also recommends that you shy away from frightening words such as exam, x-rays, needle, shot, drill, or cavity when discussing dental visits with your child.
Special needs children children require special care and attention when receiving dental care. If your child has special needs, Triangle Pediatric Dentistry will work with their limitations and create a plan of action that will make their visit to the dentist comfortable. Our dental team has the experience and patience it takes to handle any type of physical, mental, cognitive, or developmental issue.
At Triangle Pediatric Dentistry, we have two well-trained pediatric dentists on our team. Dr. Hollowell and Dr. Porter completed a pediatric dental residency at VCU and take great pride in creating a positive experience for children when they visit our office. They enjoy helping them grow into confident dental patients who love their smile and know how to prevent cavities.
