Treatment for Infants

Your child’s first few visits to a dental office can be somewhat frightening. That’s why we take special care to make sure that you and your baby are comfortable. During your visit we like to have a parent assist Dr Carter when performing an oral examination. We typically have the child sitting on a lap cushion between the dentist and the parent. Our approach is to gradually get the new child familiar with the new dental surroundings.  Infants can bring toys or books from the reception area into the treatment rooms to help occupy them.

Treatment for Children

Our dental team will regularly monitor a child’s dental growth and development according to their age group. Dr Carter will also recommend early orthodontic evaluation and treatment as necessary, which can typically be performed in-house without the need to refer out to another practice.

Treatment for Teens

For teens, we explain procedures, show them what instruments will be used, and then perform the treatment. These techniques can still be useful amongst teenagers even after many years of dental visits. We also provide education for teens on oral piercings and smoking habits.
