Education and Preventive Dental Care for Kids
Proper oral hygiene is important for parents and children; it prevents problems that would require complex care in the future. Dr. Leda Whitmer and her professional staff treat patients as young as the age of two and help parents understand how diet choices and oral hygiene support long-term oral health, as well as how to supervise kids in maintaining their smiles at home.
Preventive care and early intervention are easier than treating a problem caused by insufficient oral care. We work with parents to inform them what to expect when their child’s teeth begin to emerge and establishing a foundation for their dental health through twice-yearly examination.
What to Expect from our Valencia Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Whitmer wants to make sure families feel comfortable at her office. Her practice is equipped with overhead TVs and floor to ceiling windows of mountain views to provide relaxation. We treat patients as people, not numbers, and personally get to know each visitor during their appointments. When treating children under four years old, we welcome parents to sit in during the initial examination, which creates a positive first impression.
If a young patient is still feeling nervous, our practice ensures their comfort by offering nitrous oxide. Every step of the treatment is thoroughly explained to the patient and parent so they may feel at ease.
In addition to first visits and introductory exams, we provide the following for young smiles:
- Fluoride Rinses
- Teeth Cleanings
- Cavity Detection and Prevention
