Family dentistry gets La Habra kids off to a healthy start
Many dental problems can be traced back to a bad experience at the dentist as a child. Rough or forced treatment leaves a young patient fearful of returning to the chair, and possibly rebellious about home hygiene. Dr. Mario Castellanos, Jr. and Dr. Josue Robles want to be the first dentists your child sees, to avoid these problems. They get La Habra kids started on a path to lifetime oral wellness with gentle family dentistry.
Your child’s dental care should begin before the first tooth erupts. An appointment by his or her first birthday introduces baby to the sights, sounds, and smiling faces at Summit Dental. This unhurried, pleasant visit sets a baseline for future care, and provides education for parents on how to keep baby’s gums and emerging teeth clean.
Dr. Castellanos is certified in nitrous oxide (inhaled gas) and oral conscious sedation for children. These techniques help to create low-stress appointments that keep kids on the right track.
Advantages of family dental care include:
- Convenience – We are happy to schedule appointments for multiple family members on the same day, to reduce travel and missed time from work or school.
- Vigilance – When we treat your entire family, we develop a deep understanding of lifestyle and hereditary conditions that may impact oral health. This helps us intercept problems early, when they are most reversible, and treatment is efficient and economical. We also keep a watchful eye on oral development of children for possible need of orthodontic intervention.
- Safety – By building trusting relationships with families, we know your medical background – what health issues you may be managing and what medications you take. Should you have a dental emergency, you can count on prompt care with this higher level of assurance.
At Summit Dental, family dentistry means bringing top quality care to you and those you love. In the La Habra area call (562) 694-3984.
