Gentle Care for Little Smiles

Your child's first visit to the dentist can make or break how they feel about future checkups. A bad experience can make them afraid to come back for regular care. That is why Dr. Mariam and Dr. Yara are committed to providing pediatric dental care that helps build positive associations and healthy habits from their very first visit! We take a gentle approach with our youngest patients, with treatments tailored to meet the needs of growing mouths provided in a warm, welcoming environment. From their very first tooth to their transition into adulthood, we're here to ensure every visit to our office is as stress-free as possible for both you and your child.

Our Pediatric Dentistry Services

Our littlest patients may be small, but their dental needs are just as big as adults! Our team is fully equipped to meet your child’s every need with a comprehensive suite of pediatric dentistry services. Here’s a glimpse into how we care for your child’s dental health:

  • Regular Check-ups and Cleanings: Preventative care is at the heart of what we do for our patients, both young and old. We focus on gentle yet thorough cleanings and regular exams to keep those teeth sparkly clean and catch any issues early.
  • Dental Sealants and Fluoride Treatments: We offer sealants and fluoride treatments to protect against cavities, providing an extra layer of protection for your child's teeth.
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings and Crowns: Worried about cavities or damaged teeth? Our children’s dentists use tooth-colored materials to restore your child’s tooth while keeping their smile naturally beautiful.
  • Orthodontic Evaluations: We keep an eye on how your child's teeth and jaws are developing and can recommend orthodontic treatments to ensure they grow up with a straight, healthy smile.
  • Education on Proper Oral Hygiene: We love teaching our young patients (and their parents) about how to properly care for teeth and gums at home, turning brushing and flossing into fun, engaging routines.

Visiting the dentist can be a little scary for children, especially if it’s their first visit. Foothill Family Dental Group is all about making dental visits a walk in the park for both kids and parents. Here’s what you and your little one can expect:

  • A Warm Welcome: Our friendly team goes the extra mile to make your child feel safe and welcome from the moment you step through our doors.
  • Gentle Examination: Dr. Mariam or Dr. Yara will gently examine your child’s mouth, teeth, and gums, using kid-friendly language and a soft touch.
  • Engaging Education: We’ll chat with your child about their oral hygiene habits in a fun and interactive way while encouraging them to take pride in their dental care.
  • Stress-Free Treatment: Should your child need any treatment, we ensure it's as comfortable and pain-free as possible, with plenty of reassurance along the way.

Your child should have their first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months after their first tooth appears, laying the groundwork for good dental health.

How can I prepare my child for their visit?

Talk about the dentist in a positive way, read them stories about dental visits, and let them know the dentist is a friend who helps keep their smile bright and healthy.

What if my child is afraid of the dentist?

It’s not uncommon for children to feel nervous. Dr. Mariam and Dr. Yara are experienced in calming anxious little ones, using gentle techniques and a patient, understanding approach to ease their fears. If necessary, we can offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for highly anxious children.

Can my child eat before their dental appointment?

Yes, but we recommend keeping it light and avoiding sugary foods or drinks. A small, healthy snack can help settle any butterflies before their visit.
