Can I bring my children to Dr. Kenneth G. Edwards, DDS?
Yes, you can bring your entire family to our dental office, including the youngest members. Consider our dental office your children’s dentist in Amherst. We generally recommend that kids start coming to the dentist as soon as they start getting teeth—usually around the age of one. If you have any concerns before then, please feel free to give us a call.
The first couple of dental visits serve as an introduction to the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist's office. We won’t force your children to do anything they are not comfortable with; we’ll just take them for a spin in the dental chair and take a look at their teeth. Our goal is to help your kids establish a comfortable relationship with the dentist from an early age.
As your child gets older, we will conduct more thorough examinations and provide teeth cleanings. Most kids who are cavity-prone will also benefit from either fluoride treatments or dental sealants to help prevent dental caries from forming. We’ll also go over proper home care, so smiles stay healthy between dental visits.
It’s never too early to start taking care of your child’s oral health. Contact our children’s dentist in Amherst, Dr. Kenneth G. Edwards, DDS. We look forward to treating your entire family!
