Valley Dental Health offers pediatric dental services and sees children starting at age 3. By this time, children should have all of their primary teeth. Early dentist appointments allows your child to get to know us and get used to our office. Then we can build a trusting patient-dentist relationship. Additionally, this helps avoid the development of dental anxiety or fear of the dentist later on in life.
Drs. Rafat and Izadi will take the time to educate patients on the importance of both routine dental care and effective at-home oral hygiene. Prevention is the key to lifelong dental health, and the foundation of our family dental practice.
At each visit, you can expect a full exam, x-rays, and a dental cleaning. During the exam, we will be looking for dental concerns such as gum disease, tooth decay, and signs of oral cancer. Sometimes further dental care is needed if you are diagnosed with a dental issue. X-rays are taken once a year unless there is a problem. We may need to take additional x-rays and other diagnostics to help diagnose and treat the problem. Our registered dental hygienists are gentle yet thorough while cleaning your teeth. They will remove all the plaque hiding in your mouth and then polish your teeth.
