Pediatric Dentistry in Wichita, KS
The oral health of your child is incredibly important, especially during the developmental stages. It is imperative that good oral hygiene is maintained throughout childhood to ensure a healthy mouth leading into the teenage years, and ultimately adulthood. Instilling good brushing and flossing habits, along with routine trips to the dentist, will provide an excellent foundation for your child and their oral health. In Wichita, KS, at the office of Lakepoint Dental Health and Aesthetics, P.A., Dr. Ernie Belen and Dr. Mary Ann Chang want to help in building that foundation, ensuring a healthy mouth for your child, and providing a warm, friendly experience so they will want to come back again.
Children's Dental Care in Wichita, KS
At Lakepoint, we understand that children cannot be treated the same way as other patients. Kids are not small adults. They will not always be patient and cooperative, some of the tools and instruments may frighten them, and their first appointment will most likely be a scary moment for them. That is why we treat every visit with your child with special care.
Our pediatric dentist has years of schooling beyond graduation from dental school, meaning the main focus is on child care. Our specialist knows how to examine and treat children in ways to make them comfortable, while also conducting a procedure to clean the mouth and examine for any potential problems. We also understand how to treat children with any specific health issues. Your child is in good hands when they show up for their appointment!
