At Smile Style Dental, we have found that the earlier we see children, the better chance we have to educate and prevent problems occurring. For this reason we advise parents to introduce their child to professional dental care from a young age. These early appointments may involve simply sitting on a parent’s lap in our dental chair or having their own baby teeth counted and polished with a soft brush.


The chewing surfaces of the molar and premolar teeth have grooves – “fissures” — that make them susceptible to decay


Orthodontics can be done at any age including during adulthood, but it is often much easier when children are young. So as not to miss the opportunity to begin treatment at the right time, the earlier we see your child the better, preferably before the age of 7 years.


Childhood is one of the most important times for achieving and maintaining oral health. Healthy teeth and gums throughout childhood can lead to long-term health in adulthood. At Smile Style, we are big believers in preventive dentistry, including seeing your children every six months for a check-up to ensure that their oral health is in optimal condition.
