Your Child’s Oral Health
Our office sees children of all ages. It has always been and continues to be an enjoyable part of our general dental practice. We focus on teaching prevention, proper home care and healthy eating.
Our goal is by the time your child becomes an adult they have no cavities and they understand what it takes to have healthy teeth for a lifetime.
In order to accomplish this, you and your child need to have an understanding of proper nutrition and practice good oral hygiene. You, as a parent or caregiver, will be leading the way and setting the example on healthy living for your entire family. We are here to help you along the way of raising a healthy child.
I love this office! The staff is always friendly and kid friendly! …… Dr. Jennifer went above and beyond my expectations and now my daughter loves going to see the dentist and always asks when she can go back to visit again! Thank you Vermillion Dental for making my daughter love the dentist again!!!”
Ashley, Schuylkill County
Our office provides a wide variety of treatment services for your child and is trained, licensed and equipped for mild sedation. We make appropriate referrals to local orthodontists, oral surgeons, pediatric dentists and other specialists if more specialized treatment is necessary.
Examination by age 1
We follow the national recommendations to examine all children by age 1 (or six months after the eruption of the first tooth) and educate pregnant mothers, parents and caregivers about why baby teeth matter and how to care for them.
Your Child’s “Dental Home”
We believe every child should have a dental home. A dental home is the ongoing relationship between the dentist who is the primary dental care provider and the patient, which includes comprehensive oral health care, beginning no later than age 1 in a continuously accessible, coordinated and family-centered way.
The definition of a “dental home” was developed by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Council on Clinical Affairs.
