Dental Care for Children

We at Forum Dental Group believe that children are very precious. Out of a love for children and the desire to see their beautiful smiles, we cherish the opportunity to educate and treat them. Providing children with healthy, aesthetic smiles and attitudes, while helping their parents stay well informed are important concerns to us.

Our office environment and practice is designed to make your child’s visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. A child with a positive impression of the dental environment is much more likely to seek the care he or she needs to maintain good dental health throughout adulthood. At Forum Dental Group, we are building the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth by creating happy experiences. We see a need for providing quality children’s dental care in the Mill Creek community. Forum Dental Group is sensitive to the unique needs of young children and it is our goal to provide that care with the latest proven dental techniques and a warm caring approach.  Our highly skilled staff provides the highest possible standard of care.

Every parent hopes that their child will go through life without having many of the problems that they suffered with. That certainly includes cavities and unpleasant associations with the dentist.  Call to make your appointment today and see why one little boy asked, “Mommy, can we come again?  I like it here.  It’s so much fun!”

Why is it important for dental visits to be fun for children?

Pleasant visits with the dentist help a child establish trust and confidence that will last a lifetime. No one should be afraid of his or her dentist. If a child fears their dentist, then they may avoid seeking dental care as an adult. Our mission is to help apprehensive children get over their fears and become happy, willing patients. Also, Dr. Ho’s experience of over fourteen years with children enables him to speak with your child with easily understood terms, pictures and ideas, so your child will be motivated to take proper care of his or her mouth.

How often should my child come for dental check-ups?

To maintain optimal dental health, your child should be seen every six months unless otherwise instructed. Regular check-ups help your child stay cavity-free by emphasizing preventive measure and catching problems while they are still small and cared for easily. Regular cleanings remove plaque that build up on the teeth, cause gum infections and decay. Professional fluoride treatments strengthen the teeth and prevent decay. Oral hygiene instruction reinforces proper brushing and flossing techniques and this leads to a healthier mouth and the prevention of dental decay. Forum Dental Group will also provide an assessment of changes in the oral cavity and may suggest additional fluoride needs, sealants, or changes in dietary content.
