at DeShazer Leverton Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
There is nothing more beautiful than a child's smile! Parents want to do a good job keeping those little smiles healthy, and our Pell City family dentists are here to help.
Children's dentistry begins by creating a positive experience. We see children ages 3 and up for preventive dental cleanings in our practice. We may recommend that your child see a children's dental specialist, or pediatric dentist, if we feel their needs would be better managed by a specialist.
At your child's first appointment, our hygienists will strive to make this time a fun event for your child. They will use 'show and tell' to teach them all the good things about taking care of their teeth.
To prepare your child for their first dental visit:
We suggest telling them about the great time they will have taking a ride in the chair, letting the dentist 'count' their teeth and getting them 'brushed' to make them clean and shiny. And, they get a prize when they are done! (What could be more fun than that?)
Orthodontic and Developmental Dental Needs
Dr. DeShazer and Dr. Leverton will examine and monitor the health of your child's teeth at each check-up visit. Not only are they looking for decay and other tooth problems, they will assess your child's dental development as they grow, including orthodontic needs. It is always an advantage to detect issues early; our dentists will recommend dental x-rays as necessary to provide you with information to guide you in managing your child's oral health.
Dentistry for the Entire Family
We enjoy providing family dentistry for patients of all ages, and would love to help you build a healthy dental health future for your child! Just give us a call to schedule a preventive care appointment with one of our dentists in our Pell City dental office.
