Whether you’re new to the Las Vegas area or are looking to switch to a different dentist, picking the right dental professional for your children can be complicated. You want a family dentist who has the compassion, patience and experience necessary to make your child feel comfortable. The dentist’s chair can be intimidating for both kids and adults, so the office atmosphere is one important aspect to consider when you choose a new dentist.
Some other factors to keep in mind as you shop around for the right dentist include:
- His or her credentials: You want a dentist who has the respect of their peers and strives to continue their education to provide the latest procedures and treatments available for your teeth and the growing teeth of your child.
- Affordable dental financing: As your children grow up, they will need bi-annual dental exams and potentially, fluoride treatments and orthodontics. These can be quite pricey, especially if you have several kids around the same age. Our dentists offer financing options so your family can have great dental care without breaking the bank.
- Emergency dentistry: Your children are likely involved in after-school activities and sports, which may increase their risk of a dental emergency. Consider choosing a dentist who offers emergency dentistry, so you know what to do and who to call if your child has an urgent tooth issue.
- Cleanliness: This is somewhat of a no-brainer, but pay attention to the state of the dentistry office and the hygiene habits of the staff.
