At the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria we feature pediatric dentistry, and are proud of the fact that most of our young patients love visiting our office. We believe that establishing a positive relationship with the dentist at an early age is essential to lifelong dental health.
The Oral Health – Physical Health Connection
Good physical health for children is impossible without good oral health. Though this seems obvious, cavities in little ones is a national epidemic. Regular checkups are as vital as immunizations.
The health of your child’s teeth and gums affects their speech development, eating habits, academic success, mental health, and social relationships. We love working with you and your child to establish habits that ensure a healthy smile for life.
The Good News
At the Center for Dental Anesthesia, we believe a trip to the dentist doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Children today are far less fearful of the dentist than earlier generations. One reason is that modern dental tools are better than ever, and rarely cause any pain.
We provide a friendly atmosphere that puts patients of all ages at ease. If you are looking for a top dentist for your child, rest assured that our passionate team will make your child feel comfortable during their dental visit.
We advise parents to bring their youngsters in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During the initial visit, we can highlight dental treatments such as sealants, fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques, and orthodontics.
