Dental Services for Children
Our team at Alaska Avenue Dental Clinic understands the importance of your child's oral health. We will work with you to help your child establish and maintain good oral health habits.
What to expect
We want your children to feel comfortable with us from their first visit. We understand that this is a new environment for your child, and we will walk them through the benefits of brushing away the "sugar bugs" on their teeth, give them a tour of the office, and more.
Education and familiarity early on is important to maintaining good oral habits for life.
How often should my child visit the dentist?
A good oral homecare routine is important to maintaining children's oral health. However, we also recommend that you bring your family to visit the dentist twice a year. We will do a thorough assessment of their oral health, and ensure they are comfortable with our team.
We believe that children should understand the importance of good oral care. During their appointment, we will show them:
- How to brush their teeth
- How to floss their teeth
- How often to brush and floss for a healthy smile

Tips for a Healthy Smile from the Alaska Avenue Dental Team
Sugar plays a big role in the development of cavities. Avoid foods with 'hidden' sugars, like crackers, processed food, and milk. Brushing twice daily, swishing with water or chewing sugarless gum after meals can reduce the harmful of effect sugar on your teeth.
