At Diablo Valley Dental, we provide your children with state-of-the-art preventive care, and strive to teach the importance and responsibility of healthy oral hygiene habits. Our Pleasant Hill pediatric dentist and caring professional staff help your children feel at ease throughout their visits to our office, and patiently address all their needs and concerns. We understand the important role that early dental experiences play in establishing a strong foundation for maintaining a lifetime of optimal oral health.
Studies show that 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental disease. While that statistic may sound alarming, with a comprehensive preventive program, your child can avoid the consequences of dental decay and spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and more time learning and having fun. By the time your child’s first tooth erupts, usually by his or her first birthday, it’s time for a preventive checkup. Each time you bring your child in for a visit, our Pleasant Hill pediatric dentist will examine the growth and development of his or her teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure. We aim to diagnose oral health problems early on, when they are typically the easiest to treat. Our dentist will also perform a thorough, professional teeth cleaning, removing any plaque your child may have missed while brushing, and will guide your child on better techniques for oral hygiene practices at home. Due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible to cavities. Our office provides dental sealants, which are protective coatings, painted on the biting surfaces of the permanent molars, to stop plaque and food debris from accumulating in the crevices. Our dentist can also apply a fluoride treatment to protect the tooth enamel from erosion.
Finding a highly skilled, compassionate Pleasant Hill pediatric dentist is an important first step in your child’s lifelong commitment to excellent oral health. At Diablo Valley Dental, we provide the personalized attention your child deserves. To schedule your child’s checkup, call today.
