“The Dental Home” for Your Family.
A dental home is an ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way.
Ideally, the Dental Home should be established early – probably at the onset of the first tooth, to help children and their families institute a lifetime of good oral health. A dental home addresses anticipatory guidance and preventive, acute, and comprehensive oral health care and includes referral to dental specialists where appropriate.
Like we said, start early.
Like children, their teeth grow fast and their smiles change over time. Our dentists help children grow healthy smiles and guiding parents by providing them with actionable oral health advice all along the growing years- right from maintaining a ‘diet diary’ to diet counseling and preventive dentistry to keep those pearlies healthy.
