Our doctors are passionate about ensuring children have positive experiences in the dental office. We continue to have countless patients who have great experiences as kids. These experiences have allowed them to have positive feelings towards the care they receive and grow up without a fear of the dentist.
We follow recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and like to see your child when they have their first tooth come in. This appointment can be scheduled at the same as a caregiver’s or parent’s cleaning and takes just a few minutes.
Cavity prevention is a large port of what we do in our office. We offer individualized home-care instructions tailored to your child’s needs, dental sealants to prevent cavities on biting surfaces, and fluoride treatments.
Our doctors meticulously watch each child for eruption patterns and make referrals to orthodontists in the area when your child needs orthodontic care.
Baby teeth might be temporary, but they’re critical to a child’s oral health development. Children need these milk teeth to learn how to properly speak and chew. They help with jaw development and the proper emergence of permanent teeth. If your child loses a baby tooth, he or she may need a space maintainer to ensure correct development takes place. Otherwise, the
permanent teeth may emerge crooked.
Everyone, including parents, can benefit from refresher courses on oral hygiene. It’s never too early to train your child (and yourself) on proper pediatric dental care. The first visit should be short, fun, and informative. Oak Hills Dentistry guarantees an enjoyable, educational first appointment — and ongoing appointments — for z families in Layton, Utah.
