We welcome children of all ages to Lakeforest Dental Associates. We are a family dental practice serving Gaithersburg and its surrounding communities. Our team takes a particular interest in caring for kids because we understand what a positive impact early childhood dental care can have on their adult smiles.
Your Child’s “Happy Visit”
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that little ones have their initial dental appointment by one year or after their first tooth makes an appearance. This is a light-hearted dental visit designed to help toddlers relax while they are with us. Kids are naturally curious, and we make this milestone visit a fun one for them while discussing essential topics regarding home care, habits, and nutritional support for little smiles with parents.
Dental decay is one of the most common preventable childhood diseases. Water fluoridation, fluoride toothpaste, and proper home care all play an active role in helping kids avoid cavities. As your child grows, we will monitor his or her risk for developing cavities and offer additional cavity-fighting treatments including fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
We always make recommendations based on a child’s oral health needs, not as a one-size-fits-all solution.
