Cleveland Pediatric Dentistry
Many families find it convenient to all go to the same dental practice. At all five of our Angel Dental Care locations, we welcome children and will provide them with expert pediatric care.
At Angel Dental Care, we make treating children a high priority. We even have a pediatric dentist, Dr. Noora Khadier, on staff to ensure your child will always get the highest quality of care. Dr. Khadier is kind and gentle, and she puts children at ease immediately. She also has a bit of a stern side so your kids know she won’t be tricked or manipulated. It’s like having a modern-day Mary Poppins right in our office!
Our goal is to make dentistry fun. It’s the experiences we have when we’re young that shape our views of going to the dentist as we grow. Because of that, we want to make your child’s dental visits something to look forward to. We recommend seeing them as young as one year old, or sometimes even earlier. It’s really never too soon as long as they’ve had a tooth erupt. Making it a regular thing for them helps to take the fear away.
We endeavor to make every aspect of your child’s visit fun, from the moment they walk in the door, right until it’s time to go. We have a play area in our reception room with toys, a treasure chest, and stickers. Our toothbrushes have cartoon characters and our topical anesthetic even smells like bubble gum!
Why is it important?
Without realizing it, some parents can often scare their kids with their own negative experiences. If you’ve ever had a painful dental visit, it’s possible you may be projecting that onto your child. When you bring your child in for their first visit, you might overprepare them. While your motives are pure, it can backfire because kids pick up on anxiety and become unnecessarily nervous.
On the other hand, some parents simply put off taking their children to the dentist because they figure if they don’t have a dental problem, why subject them to the dentist? Unfortunately, that usually results in their first dental visit being associated with the pain of a dental problem. If you take them to the dentist regularly, before any problems occur, we can give them a positive experience AND prevent painful treatment in the future by keeping up proper maintenance.
