At All Star Dental, we recommend bringing your child to the dentist starting around the age of six months for their first pediatric dental cleaning appointment. Studies show that poor oral health care in young children can lead to speech problems, poor performance in school and even an inability to socialize successfully with other children. Besides treating your child’s teeth, our children’s dentists will also give you advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene for your child between visits.
In younger children, our focus is on maintaining their baby teeth until they naturally fall out in favor of their permanent teeth. However, as the child becomes an adolescent and begins developing appearance and self-image issues, our focus expands to meet these additional cosmetic needs as well. We take pride in being Chicago’s best kids pediatric dentistry office. We accept Medicaid for children’s dentistry and all pediatric dentistry services.
At All Star Dental, we want children to look forward to their dental visits, so every one of our offices has been designed to make children feel relaxed and comfortable, with a variety of fun activities available. Probably the highlight of every child’s visit is the elaborate play areas we have in every one of our pediatric dental offices. These are fun places where children can play alone on a variety of video games, or join in groups and have fun together. Our play areas and fun wall art are a great way to take their minds off the actual dental work. All Star Dental gives children a very unthreatening environment, making our offices fun, inviting places for them.
We understand how potentially scary it is for children to undergo dental treatments, so we have a standing rule that a parent is always welcome to accompany their children in our treatment rooms. We have very caring children’s dentists, and it’s a common sight to see our youngest patients actually sitting in their mothers’ laps in our dental chairs.
We begin seeing children as young as 6 months old for children’s dental care. We believe it’s important to give each child a good head start in developing healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Plus we also help educate their parents in proper oral health care practices at home, such as advising them not to let their children fall asleep with a milk or juice bottle, how to use a pacifier properly, how to handle thumb-sucking, and more. Come see All Star Dental for all pediatric dentistry services.
