When should my child see the dentist?
We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommend children be seen by a dentist by the age of one, or by the time the first tooth erupts. We believe in a lifetime of prevention and education, from the first visit, well into the teenage years.
What is a dental home?
Establishing your child's "Dental Home" at Janoff & Khatri provides an opportunity for our team to implement and teach preventive dental habits. We tailor a hygiene program specifically designed to meet your child's needs. We discuss nutrition, establishing healthy dietary habits that prevent dental and oral disease. We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental disease. We stay on the leading edge of beneficial care, technology and therapy advances in dentistry for children.
How can I prepare my child?
Before the first visit with Dr. Khatri, talk with your child about the positive aspects of dentistry. Help your child feel comfortable by expressing good feelings about dental visits. By using phrases such as "careful and gentle" rather than "won't hurt you" when describing their exam, you help your child feel more relaxed and comfortable during their visit.
