The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) advises that children be seen for a checkup every 6 months. At Santa Teresa Dental Center, Dr. Sudeep provides comprehensive pediatric dentistry services and begins seeing children for regular checkups at age 2 at our San Jose, CA dental office.
These visits, in combination with our pediatric dentistry services, allow our dental team to closely monitor new changes in your child’s mouth and ensure that you, as a parent, have the information you need to promote continued oral health in your child.
Our dental team may suggest additional checkups if your child is more susceptible to cavities, or if your child is showing signs of orthodontic problems.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
As a parent herself, Dr. Sudeep understands that you want the best for your child. At Santa Teresa Dental Center, we focus on providing the highest quality pediatric dental care possible for patients of every age!
It’s completely normal for a child to be unsure or nervous about their first dental visit, but at our San Jose office, they don’t have to be! Our practice is designed to make your child comfortable and excited to visit the dentist.
If your child is anxious, has special needs, or just needs extra help staying calm and comfortable, Dr. Sudeep may recommend laughing gas. Laughing gas is a completely safe way to help children receive the dental care they need without anxiety or fear. Once the dental treatment is over, the gas will be completely out of their system after just a few minutes. Laughing gas is widely considered to be low risk.
At Santa Teresa Dental Center, our goal is to always care for your child’s dental health in the safest way possible. Is your child overdue for a dental checkup? Give Santa Teresa Dental Center a call today to schedule his or her appointment.
Santa Teresa Dental Centers offers access to an emergency dentist when you child has an accident and needs to be seen right away.
