Your Child's First Dental Visit
During your child's first dental visit, our dentists and their kid-friendly staff will do everything they can to make our youngest patients feel at ease. Our team will take plenty of comfortable x-rays to get a clear idea of your child's current health, and either Dr. Ellsworth or Dr. Hill will perform a comprehensive exam during which they’ll also take time to get to know your child. We want kids to enjoy coming to the dentist, so we work to make our office as fun and inviting as possible!
We emphasize oral health education by providing easy-to-understand explanations designed to help kids keep their teeth and gums healthy in between appointments.
Checkups and Preventive Care
We follow oral health guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD), which advise children to be seen for checkups every 6 months. If our team discovers multiple cavities or early orthodontic concerns, we may suggest more frequent appointments to establish strong dental health and consistent preventive habits early on.
At Family Dental of Spokane Valley, our complete body dentistry philosophy is anchored in prevention, but, sometimes small cavities can still occur. To treat them, we use safe, effective tooth-colored dental fillings that are always mercury-free.
Dental Crowns For Children
If your child suffers an oral injury, or if our team discovers decay, we may recommend a dental crown to help save the tooth. We always offer lab-fabricated dental crowns that are made from the most advanced, durable materials.
Tooth Extractions For Kids
We may recommend a gentle tooth extraction for children suffering from decay or those who are experiencing early crowding. Tooth extractions can ensure your child’s total body health is optimal as they grow.
