All doctors have trained in residency programs geared toward family dentistry and are all trained in pediatric dentistry. We love seeing children and proudly offer family dentistry at our Parsippany dental office.
Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental appointment by age one? Bringing your little one early not only gives our dentists an opportunity to monitor their dental health and development, but also helps them become familiar with the dental office setting.
We will let them hold the mirror while we brush their teeth and sneak a peek at how their teeth are coming in. This is also a great time to talk to parents about healthy nutrition and to discuss habits like thumb sucking and bottle use.
We like to think of these early childhood visits as a fun and interactive way to help your child understand that brushing and flossing are important, and the dentist is fun – not scary at all.
As your child grows, we will adjust our dental appointments to include an exam, cleaning, and bitewing x-rays. We recommend fluoride treatments or sealants for kids with a higher risk of dental caries (decay).
If you are looking for children’s dentistry in Parsippany, give Gruber Dental a call. We love treating little smiles.
