Frequently Asked Questions

Lowell Dentistry for Children

When should I take my child to the dentist for their first check-up?

In order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist no later than his/her first birthday.

What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a family dentist?

Just as pediatricians provide specialty medical care for the developing child, a pediatric dentist does the same for a child’s oral health. He/she has two to three years additional specialty training following dental school. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.

What if my child is very fearful of the Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are trained to deal with dental anxiety in children. We use techniques such as tell, show, do to explain dental procedures. We also have other options available including Nitrous Oxide Sedation, Sedation Dentistry and Hospital Dentistry. Our Doctors will be happy to discuss which option is right for your child.

Will I be able to accompany my child for treatment?

We welcome a parent or guardian to accompany their child in our treatment area. Our goal is to make your child, and you as comfortable as possible from check in to check out.

Are baby teeth really that important to my child?

Primary, or "baby," teeth are important for many reasons. Not only do they help children speak clearly and chew naturally, they also aid in forming a path that permanent teeth can follow when they are ready to erupt.

How often does my child need to see the pediatric dentist?

A check-up every six months is recommended in order to prevent cavities and other dental problems. However, our Doctors can tell you when and how often your child should visit based on their personal oral health.
