At Little Britches children and their pearly whites are our passion! We don’t believe in child restraint and would never force any child to do anything they don’t feel comfortable with. We strive for each child to have a safe and fun experience in our office. Whether that is having fun with Mr. Thirsty or taking cool X-
Parents are always welcome and encouraged to join their children during exams, cleanings and treatment appointments. Here at Little Britches we have nothing to hide! We are great at what we do, and besides…why would we keep the fun just for the kids????
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children are seen by a pediatric dentist by the age of one! There are many reasons to start early:
These early visits are the perfect time for you, the parent, to ask the doctors and dental assistants all your questions and to introduce your baby to us! Establishing this early relationship with a pediatric dentist increases the chance of preventing future dental problems and will make your child more comfortable with us and the dental office.
Dental problems can begin early! Early tooth decay can result from drinking milk, juice and baby formula from a bottle or from excessive nursing for some children. It can also be genetic (just the wrong chemistry)! Some kids just grow cavities better! Starting early can help you, the parent, know what to look for and how to begin caring for your baby’s teeth.
According to the Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry :
These statistics are overwhelming and we strive to prevent these statistics from being the future of our Boulder County community! By starting early dental care with a pediatric dentist, we are beginning to fight the WAR on cavities!
Pediatric Dentists are the “Pediatricians” of the mouth! You take your child to a specialty doctor when they are sick, why would you not let a similar specialty doctor help your child’s mouth?! Pediatric dentists are trained to teach parents and children how to prevent cavities and promote great oral health right from the beginning. Kids need a kids’ dentist! Our extra training makes us the perfect fit for you and your children to begin their dental education!
All pediatric dentists receive two to three years of specialty training (our docs have much more!) after dental school in treating children and individuals with special needs. This makes pediatric dentists uniquely qualified to provide the most appropriate and cost effective dental care for your family!
Since we have extra training and specialize in children’s dental health everyday, we are even more qualified! We only see infants, children and teens, we love them all and we choose to work with only them… day in and day out! We understand and are trained to handle unique dental issues and concerns that go hand in hand with your infant growing up and each stage of life/growth.
We speak KID! Not only is your child having fun, but we are too! Yes, we have silly names for our tools, we have fun games we play and we also use a special language to communicate with your child and you as the parent. Come see for yourself!
