Scheive Family Dental Care’s youngest patients are a source of joy. We look forward to seeing your children and starting them on the road to lifelong dental health. Dr. Scheive enjoys working with young patients, making sure that a visit to the dentist is enjoyable, not intimidating. She knows how important it is to make your children comfortable from personal experience—she has a young daughter of her own to keep her in practice caring for kiddos.
Your children can look forward to gentle teeth cleanings in our office. They can expect patient instruction in how to care for their teeth. They can expect to feel valued as a patient and praised for their hard work. We want your children to want to come to the dentist.
After a visit with us, they might even look forward to their next checkup!
Between regular checkups, daily care for young teeth is much the same as tooth care for permanent teeth. Children should brush twice a day, avoid sugary snacks, floss regularly, and rinse with water after eating to keep their mouth fresh and teeth shiny. Please speak with us at your next visit if your child does not drink fluoridated water to see if a fluoride supplement might be right for your child.
If you have questions about oral surgery or would like to schedule a consultation with your Glen Ellyn dentist, give us a call today or schedule an appointment online! We look forward to smiling with you.
