We are proud to offer dental services for the whole family within our practice. We treat children from the age of three in our office if they are able to cooperate with us on a basic level and sit in the chair without assistance. Dr. Malz is especially good with kids and often sings a good rendition of “The Wheels On the Bus” while tickling teeth and removing cavity bugs.
In addition, we offer LCD televisions, headphones and, if needed, nitrous oxide to keep children occupied and comfortable.
Should extensive work be needed that is beyond the scope of our practice or, if your child has unique needs, we are happy to work with many pediatric specialists in the area. Once initial work is completed by the specialist, we often see children return with the rest of the family for their preventive care so that the whole family can stay together.
We firmly believe that the care your children receive will set the stage for how they view dentistry for the rest of their lives. It is very important to us that your kids are comfortable and healthy. Good habits at home and professional supervision during growth are the keys for a healthy set of teeth for life!
