We asked our Plano Moms who their favorite Pediatric Dentist was nearby!
Do you have a Kids Dentist that you love and your Kids can’t wait to go visit?
In our Facebook group, we frequently get asked who the Best Pediatric Dentist nearby is for their Kids, and put together this list to help you decide.
We’ve tallied up the feedback from Moms who have commented about their favorite Pediatric Dentists nearby.
What age should you take Kids to a Pediatric Dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends a visit by their 1st birthday or within six months after the first tooth erupts.
Primary teeth typically begin growing in at around 6 months
Start cleaning baby’s teeth when they appear by wiping with a soft cloth or brushing with a small soft toothbrush and water.
At 18 months you can start using a pea-sized amount of low-fluoride toothpaste to brush your child’s teeth. Consult your Kids’ Dentist for advice.
How can I prepare for my Child’s First Dental Visit?
Choose a locally Recommended Pediatric Dentist (from our list) and Tour the Office Prior to the First Appointment
You Tube has some great videos for Kids about going to the Dentist or check out some books from your local Library about it
Play Pretend Dentist at Home
Schedule their First Dental Visit at a time of day when your Child will be most open to it.
Use Positive Reinforcement (but not with candy!)
Bring Friends (even their favorite Bear or Toy that they can hug)
What is the difference between a Dentist and a Pediatric Dentist?
You’ll notice that the practice is decorated with Kids’ in mind with calming colors, toys and books in a waiting room (sometimes even indoor play equipment) and shared spaces with private rooms.
Kids also love TV screens which are often placed in the ceiling. Kids can choose their favorite movie to watch!
Pediatric Dentists are specifically trained to treat Kids rather than Adults, so their tone of voice and patience reflects that! They genuinely care about Kids and understand them well.
