Healthy Smiles for Life

Healthy dental habits should begin during the formative years, so as your family dental practice, we have a talented pediatric dentist on staff. Dr. Strachan has a passion for creating big, bright smiles on children’s faces.

A child should first visit the dentist between 12 and 18 months of age. Primary teeth are susceptible to decay, cracks, breakage, and premature death, just like adult teeth. Dental problems in primary teeth can transfer to permanent teeth if left untreated. We want to help your children establish good oral health so that they can keep their teeth for a lifetime.

We Love Kids

From our child-friendly waiting room, complete with toys and books, to DVD players in the operatories that allow kids to watch movies during treatment, South Orange Dental Center is set up for kids, as well as adults. Parents play a vital role in the care of their child’s smile, so we incorporate them in the pediatric dental experience. In most cases, parents are allowed into the operatory with their child. We’ll teach you how to become an active part of your child’s dental care between visits through proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as dietary precautions. Schedule your child’s dental appointment early in the morning because kids respond best when they are well rested.

Pediatric Dental Services

While we focus on general dental health and cavity prevention for children, we also offer a variety of pediatric dental services, including fluoride treatments and sealants to protect baby teeth, habit breaking appliances to prevent thumb-sucking (which can affect the spacing and alignment of teeth), and interceptive orthodontics.

Our Cavity-Free and a rewards-based Good Behavior programs encourage children to take care of their teeth and gums and behave well at dental visits. Dr. Strachan has a natural affinity for pediatric dental care, and she continually studies new developments in the field so that your child receives the latest and greatest dental care in our office. She also enjoys teaching dental healthcare and encouraging healthy habits for students through presentations at daycares and elementary schools.

Start your child out right with a strong foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Call us today to schedule your children’s dental visits. See our pedodontic services here.
