Give your child a healthy smile by bringing them in to see a pediatric dentist. Our professional team here at West Valley Pediatric Dentistry in Taylorsville, Utah, is happy to talk to you about the importance of having your child see a pediatric dentist. Here are some basic tips and information for your child’s oral health.

Caring for your child’s oral health is imperative because it sets up the health of your child’s smile for their future. That is why it’s important to have your child come into our office to see Dr. Samuel Bailey once they either turn a year old or six months after their first tooth appears. These appointments are needed because they include having their pediatric dentist correct any dental issues that may arise, and to help your child become comfortable with them in the hopes of avoiding dental anxiety as they develop.

Another important item to remember is to sidestep too much sugar intake for your children. Sugar in items can cause cavities and even gum disease. Having sugary drinks placed in your child’s bottle can also be putting your child’s oral health in jeopardy as well as their overall health.

If you feel it’s time for your child to visit our welcoming pediatric dentist, please call us today at 801-417-8080 to set up an appointment. Our specialized team is happy to address any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your child’s care. Call us today and let us help keep your child’s smile strong and bright.
