Pediatric Service Overview

Dr. Patel & Dr. Sandhu believe a trip to the dentist should be fun, lighthearted, and not something to fear. The way your child is exposed to dentistry lays the groundwork for how they view dental care and dental visits for the rest of their lives.

Dr. Patel & Dr. Sandhu and their team loves caring for patients, and we work hard to make sure each child is spoken to gently, treated with respect, and cared for as if they were our own child. We use simple words to explain procedures to our patients and make sure each parent or guardian is aware of the process as well.


INFANT ORAL EXAM

Studies have shown that the earlier a child receives their first dental exam, the less dental treatment was needed during their youth.

DIGITAL X-RAYS

Digital x-rays allow our dentists to get a view of your child’s teeth and jaws that they can’t see with his eyes while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum.

FLUORIDE

Regular fluoride treatments help reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities and can remineralize areas where decay is starting.

PEDIATRIC SEALANTS

Sealants help protect your child’s teeth from decay by filling in the grooved biting surfaces of your child’s teeth, making them easier to clean.

TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

Tooth-colored fillings offer a durable, more natural looking option for your child’s restorations. Made from composite resin, they are strong, durable, and perfect for smaller teeth.

TOOTH EXTRACTIONS

 While we focus on helping your child keep their teeth for a lifetime, sometimes an extraction is necessary. Whether it’s extensive decay, overcrowding, or an impacted tooth, we can help you and your child understand the procedure and answer any questions you have.
