Maintain Happy, Healthy Smiles with Family Dentistry
Here at Tri-City Dental Care of Cerritos, we’re ready to cater to all of your family’s dental needs. Our caring staff practices comfortable, health centered dentistry with a strong emphasis on getting to know each patient. We are careful listeners and will explain beforehand what treatment is best for your individual needs. It’s important to start children early in the right direction to good dental hygiene.
A starting time for that first dental exam is when your child has a total of eight teeth, usually around age one. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.
We encourage patients to come back to the treatment room with parents so we may build a secure and comfortable relationship with them. Often when the parent is present, we find their presence and/or body contact to be beneficial. When a parent accompanies their child, we sometimes ask that they be a silent observer. Brushing techniques, flossing, healthy snacks and fluoride recommendations are just some of the topics discussed during your child’s initial cleaning and exam appointment.
We treat many seniors, and we offer accommodations and procedures geared toward the needs of patients 65 and older. Maintaining excellent oral health is important at every stage of life, and we excel at providing comfortable treatments and long-term benefits for our senior patients.
