Get Your Kid’s Teeth Ready for Back to School
Getting your kids ready for back to school is right around the corner and this year we suggest you include something more than buying clothes, notebooks, backpacks and pens. Make this the year that you start the back to school dental exam for your kids to ensure that their teeth are in great shape and will not create a problem once the first bell has rung and the kids are back in school.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 19% of kids age 3 to 12 have undiagnosed tooth decay and that decay can wind up causing a great deal of unnecessary pain distracting your child from school work and perhaps resulting in hours of missed classes.
Schedule a pre-school dental exam for your children at the dental office of Stephen J Pyle DDS located in Weston, FL. Dr. Pyle specializes in dentistry for children and has been treating kids for over 25 years. He and his staff understand the special needs and anxieties that children often have with dental care and have developed a process and environment that makes the experience far more enjoyable.
Back to School Dental Services
While we provide services for the entire family and the special concerns for those who want cosmetic dentistry we have a large practice of kids and it’s our responsibility to start them off with great dental hygiene practices and take care of any issues that come up.
Our services for child dentistry include:
- Regular checkups, cleanings, sealants, fillings, carifree cavity prevention, sports guards, orthodontic evaluations and digital X-rays.
- A child friendly environment that includes TV, music, and blankets during their visit.
- For smaller kids we have a drawer full of stickers and small toys as "rewards" for a successful visit.
- We use laser assisted dentistry (adults love this as well) which can reduce the need for local anesthesia shots.
Dental diseases can cause problems eating, speaking and staying focused. Don’t put it off; get your kid ready for back to school by ensuring they have the dental health that will allow them to do their best in class. Contact us for a dental appointment today.
