Should I take my child to a specialist for pediatric dentistry?
We Treat All Ages
At Walnut Creek Family Dentist, Dr. Mark Maher has experience treating patients of all life stages, and that includes kids! We love seeing your entire family in our office and welcome your youngest family members, as well. He does not specialize in pediatric dentistry but has years of experience treating children.
One of the advantages of going to a family dentist is that your entire family can receive quality treatment under one roof. We know that our patients are busy and convenience is important.
Your Child's Comfort is Our Priority
When you bring your child to our office for preventative or restorative treatment, we make their comfort a priority. We speak to kids using terms they can understand and avoid anything that might make them feel anxious. When very small children visit our dental office, we spend some time helping them to adjust to the sights and sounds. We will take them for a ride in the chair and count their teeth. When your child is ready, Dr. Maher will have a look to make sure everything is healthy.
Getting your child started with a solid foundation in excellent oral health at a young age is essential to helping him or her to avoid dental complications in the future.
