Pediatric Dentistry

Little smiles are big priorities here at Happy Harpeth Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics. Our team provides pediatric dentistry in a nurturing and positive environment for your child’s oral health journey.

Your Child’s First Dental Visit

We believe in starting early! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child’s first dental visit when their first tooth erupts or by age 1. What can you expect during this initial visit?

  • Introduction to Dentistry: Our team creates a welcoming environment, introducing your child to the world of dentistry in a friendly and non-intimidating way.
  • Oral Health Assessment: Dr. Smith will conduct a gentle examination to assess your child’s oral health and identify potential concerns early.
  • Parental Guidance: We’ll provide valuable guidance on oral care practices and answer any questions you may have about your child’s dental development.

What is Preventive Care?

Prevention is at the heart of pediatric dentistry at Happy Harpeth. We keep little smiles shining bright with regular cleanings and education on good oral hygiene practices at home. We can also keep cavities at bay and promote strong, healthy teeth with fluoride treatments or sealants. Remember, healthy habits start early!

Preparing Young Children for the Dentist

We understand dental visits can be intimidating for kids. Our team is skilled in creating a nurturing atmosphere, reassuring your child, and making every visit a positive experience. As a parent, you can also help make things less scary for your kiddos by using positive language when talking about the dentist or practicing dental checkups at home using a soft toothbrush.
