When should a child first visit the dentist?
When a child is about a year old, a visit to the dentist is a good idea. This early childhood outing will help your baby become familiar with the sights, sounds, and helpful people at our office. By age three, children should receive six-month cleanings and checkups.
What does Paris Children’s Dentistry do to help children overcome anxiety about dental care?
Our friendly staff and fun-loving nature make most kids feel right at home. We also offer television, movies, and games to take children’s minds off of dental care. Paris Children’s Dentistry offers three levels of sedation – nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation, and IV sedation.
Can children be sedated at the dentist’s office?
Yes. Share your concerns with Paris Children’s Dentistry and they will help you decide on the best form of sedation for your child. Our Doctors also have experience working with special needs patients, and we welcome these cases in our office.
Does Paris Children’s Dentistry accept dental insurance and Medicaid?
Yes. We will gladly file your insurance or Medicaid claim as a courtesy. Read about our financial and insurance policies.
We will do our best to accommodate your busy schedule. Please schedule an appointment today!
