Many dental practices prefer not to treat children or, even worse, may treat them as adults. A child's experiences in a dental office may influence their oral care habits for a lifetime.
As a new mother, Dr. Van Winkle has a special interest in caring for children. Her particular mission is to make sure that parents know that the earlier their child is examined, the better!
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children be regularly examined beginning with the arrival of their first tooth — certainly by the age of one year. During the first visit, we will gently examine your child's mouth and gums and acquaint you with proper oral hygiene and preventative measures as well as any special issues.
Children can be great patients!
We have a special interest in helping your child have a lifetime of good dental health!
Your child's first checkup before the first tooth!
