Rolfes, Rolfes, Do, and Dunne educate patients on how to care for their smiles to ensure healthy teeth and gums. In our practice, we make learning about dental care fun and exciting for adults and kids of all ages!
Parents can be an integral part of ensuring that children have healthy smiles. When children visit our practice, we also invite parents back to speak to the dentist about their child’s dental needs. Our team educates parents and offers tips for improving their children’s oral health. These may include the following:
Some Costa Mesa, CA area parents do not think about their child seeing a dentist until they are older. This is incorrect. It is important that parents be proactive and have their child seen as soon as their first tooth emerges. This first appointment may be as young as six months. After this, children should have an evaluation performed every six months from this point forward.
Visits to the dentist may include a cleaning, fluoride or sealant treatment, and x-rays to monitor development. Dental appointments should also be made in-between these routine evaluations if any concerns develop, such as a toothache, knocked out tooth, or pain that may be indicative of a cavity or other problem developing in the mouth.
Children love to visit the staff at Smiles4OC for routine dental care because we know exactly how to make them feel at ease! If you want to bring your children in for an evaluation at our practice, conveniently located in Costa Mesa, CA, we welcome you to schedule an appointment by calling (714) 557-0700. We are pleased to offer services and education for both children and adults, and help families achieve and maintain their oral health!
