At Stein Family Dentistry, we provide top-quality dental treatment and care for all members of the family. This includes children and teens. Our dental experts love helping younger patients achieve strong, healthy teeth and pleasing smiles. We know that receiving dental care early in life is the best way to maintain positive oral health into adulthood. Our team will show your child or teen that receiving dental care can be a positive experience and that there is truly nothing to be afraid of. By choosing Stein Family Dentistry for your child, you are putting their teeth in the best possible hands.
We generally recommend parents bring their children in for dental visits shortly after their first teeth begin to emerge or no later than their first birthday. From there, they should continue to receive dental visits at least twice per year. Our experts will demonstrate correct brushing and flossing techniques for your child so that they can properly maintain their teeth for many years to come. By maintaining proper oral care and receiving regular dental visits, your child will have the best chance of keeping a beautiful, healthy smile for life.
Our practice offers a full lineup of dental services for pediatric patients including:
- Sealants: Dental sealants are an acrylic coating that is applied to the back molars. By applying sealants, our experts can protect your child’s teeth against harmful bacteria and plaque that could otherwise cause major damage. Baby teeth are known for benefiting from dental sealants. This is because they feature particularly deep grooves and fissures that are very prone to decay. With dental sealants, your child’s teeth will have a much higher likelihood of remaining healthy.
- Fluoride Applications: Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance that is found in certain foods and in water. The substance has proven to be highly effective in strengthening tooth enamel and reversing the effects of tooth decay. Overall, fluoride treatments are great for children, as they are easy to provide, and they can go a long way towards protecting young teeth that are still growing and developing.
- Fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair teeth with minor damage or decay. Children often develop cavities due to excessive sugar consumption. Minor dental injuries are also very common for younger patients. Fortunately, these problems can often be corrected with a simple filling. Our experts will seal off any voids, cracks or holes that are present in your child’s damaged tooth to restore its structure and integrity. The treated tooth will then be able to be used as usual.
You can help your child achieve a lifetime of great oral health by bringing them in for a visit to Stein Family Dentistry. Receiving dental treatment early is the best way to ensure that a child’s teeth grow and develop properly. Please call us at (509) 747-5586 to schedule an appointment.
Our Happy Patients
“I went in today, after having the same dentist since I was a child. She retired, and Dr. Stein took her place. I was fearful, as I think trust is important in a dental relationship. I met Dr. Stein for the first time, and he put me at ease. Very professional, listened to my concerns, and did a painless filling and other services. I would highly recommend Dr. Stein if you are looking for a new dentist. Glad to see some of the same staff remaining as well.”
“I went in today for an X-ray and exam and I got so much more! Considering my dental insurance hasn’t kicked in yet I knew it would be expensive that being said I didn’t know what all I’d be getting done, when being told that I needed a root canal I was more than nervous about it (concerned about the cost) Dr. Stein Totally worked with my budget and set me up with a payment plan. Throughout my time there he kept saying “let’s get you out of pain first” He got me in a chair right away and took care of the root canal on the spot. I thought that was Quite impressive considering that some places will have you schedule another appointment with them For a later date, so with all that being said I’m very happy with his work even more so, happy that I’ve found a dentist. Feels good to be a part of the family.”
“Everyone in this office is very friendly and caring; having an appointment here is always like visiting with friends!
