Pediatric dentistry is one of many areas of dentistry that Dr. Dipika Shah enjoys treating. She recommends parents bring their children in to her practice in Holmdel, NJ as soon as their first tooth comes in, or when they reach one year old. The earlier children visit the dentist with parents, it helps prevent dental problems in future.
This first visit is an easy one and the child is actually sitting in the parent’s lap while being examined. This allows them to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible while our dentist examines the child’s teeth and gums.
Pediatric dentistry includes a variety of procedures for children. This includes check-ups and gentle cleanings, and fluride. We offer orthodontic treatments for school-aged children and older adolescents who want to start straightening their teeth and correcting their bite early. Additionally, we favor sealants and mouth guards for children to prevent decay and damage during sports. With early pediatric care, your child can have a healthy mouth and teeth from the beginning.
Call Dr. Dipika Shah's office at 732-264-8180 for your child’s first pediatric appointment. When you call ask us about our sealant special!
