Preventative dental care protects your child’s smile

Regular dental exams and cleanings not only improve your child’s long-term oral health but also help lower future dental costs. (That’s a win-win!) It’s never too early to start building the foundation for a healthy smile.

What to expect

Smiles in Motion’s patient-centered approach ensures that your child will get top-quality care at every dental exam—and that as a parent, you will get answers to any questions you have about your child’s oral health.

If it’s your child’s first visit with us

We’ll assess your child’s overall dental health and development, including the risk of cavities, gum disease, or other issues through a visual examination while talking them through each step. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend children have their first dental visit and exam by age one.

For infants and toddlers

Wondering if your infant or toddler can sit still for a dental exam? We’ve got you covered with a tried-and-true method that works. You will sit knee-to-knee with the care provider during the dental exam, allowing your child to comfortably lay back between the two of you in a safe, nurturing environment until they graduate to the dentist’s chair.

After the exam

Once the exam is completed, you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions about your child’s oral health, including the recommended preventive care plan and any upcoming dental procedures. With our patient-centered approach, we want to ensure parents leave the office well-informed (and smiling, too!).

We will book any necessary follow-up appointments and can book your child’s next exam and cleaning for you as well.
