What is children’s dentistry (pediatric dentistry)?

Also known as pediatric dentistry, children’s dentistry is focused on maintaining the health of your child’s smile. The main goal of children’s dentistry is to keep your child’s smile healthy by preventing dental problems and ensuring that his or her smile develops properly. Pediatric dentistry can include dental sealants, fluoride treatments, regular dental cleanings and exams, fillings, and more. We provide gentle children’s dentistry in Springfield, Virginia for children aged 3+ years.

Do I need to take my child to the dentist?

Our experienced dentists recommend that you bring your child to Northern Virginia Dental Associates for their first visit around the age of 3 years. Following the first visit, we encourage you to bring your child to our dental office every six months for regular dental cleanings and exams. During these visits, we will gently clean your child’s teeth and check for signs of dental problems, such as tooth decay. Our dentists and dental team are caring and friendly, and we work hard to ensure that your child feels calm and at ease during their visits to our office. We invite you to contact us today to learn more about children’s dentistry and to schedule your child’s visit with Dr. Winkler, Dr. Charaipotra, Dr. Coulter, and Dr. Kanli.
