Tips for Choosing a Dentist for Kids in Seattle Washington

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children should visit a dentist when their first tooth arrives, or not later than their first birthday. Although that doesn't always happen, it is never too late to get your child on a path to great oral health. We offer some tips for choosing a dentist for kids in Seattle, Washington to help parents.

Services Designed with Kids Needs in Mind

Children present many different needs when it comes to dental services. While you can just haul them off to any regular dentist, that may not be a great experience for them. A pediatric dentist specializes in the dental needs of children.

At Kid's Choice Dental locations, you will discover a wide variety of services for your child's dental care needs. Among the services we offer:

Additionally, Kid's Choice Dental provides full-service dental care including crowns, root canals, and other restorative dentistry.

Orthodontic Treatment is Also Available

There are orthodontists available to correct your child's tooth alignment if necessary. Using Invisalign First® and Invisalign Teen®, your child can have a perfect smile in record time. This unique, almost invisible tray alignment system offers the same results as traditional metal braces without the stigma.

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that a child see an orthodontist by their seventh birthday. Although most children don't require treatment at that age, it allows an orthodontist to examine the teeth and jaws. Using X-rays and digital imaging, they can predict growth patterns and work to correct minor alignment issues before they become major problems.

Having in-house orthodontic treatment available is a great option for busy parents.

We understand dental anxiety (it isn't just you -- many people have anxiety about the dentist). Our entire staff is trained to work with gentle kindness to help your children feel at ease. In fact, many of our patients actually look forward to their appointments!
