Yes! We are delighted to treat children in the Portland area, from toddlers to teens, with age-appropriate dentistry to keep their smiles happy and healthy. Dr. Brown and our team enjoy engaging with kids and getting to know them and their unique personalities.
Oral health care in childhood is incredibly important. There are a lot of steps we can take early on that lay the groundwork for a healthier smile as an adult. Additionally, helping establish a routine of oral hygiene and health care for your child sets them up for a positive, healthy attitude about oral health care that will benefit them for a lifetime.
From their first low-key visit as a toddler around age one, we’ll guide your child gently toward accepting dental care as part of their lives. We start slowly to get them engaged and interested, and then, as they mature, we’ll add dental exams, cleanings, and treatment as needed.
Preventive dentistry is as essential for kids as it is adults, if not more so. Most children can benefit from dental sealants that act as a protective barrier to prevent cavities from forming. Some kids may also need supplemental fluoride applications, and Dr. Brown will be happy to determine if your child isn’t currently getting enough fluoride to keep their teeth healthy.
We enjoy providing children’s dentistry to the smallest smiles in Portland, and we would love to meet your little one. Please call Vermont Hills Family Dental to schedule an appointment to get started.
