We recommend the first child visit to be done by the 1st birthday
It is important to educate parents about good oral hygiene habits in order to prevent cavities and dental disease, and to build a relationship between the child and the dental team. We also want to familiarize the child with the dental office environment facilitating an easier introduction to dentistry.
Our specialty enables us to be fast and efficient in diagnosing and treating children. Dr. Eid believes that there is no restoration worth making a child afraid of dentistry. He believes that most children that are afraid of the dentist would develop to become adults that are afraid of dentistry.
We emphasize a soft gentle approach to put the children at ease to make them comfortable with the dental environment.
