Your Child’s Dental
is SO Important
Children’s dentistry is very different from adult dentistry. Many
people had unpleasant experiences at the dentist when they were
growing up. We want to ensure that sort of thing does not happen
with our young patients. We are proud to have a staff to treat our
younger patients with the understanding and compassion they need.
Helping children form healthy oral habits and making their visits to
the dentist a fun experience will be the foundation of a lifetime of
We believe good children’s dentistry is about more than just regular
dental visits. Our job is to educate parents on good dental habits
that lead to healthy smiles that last a lifetime.

Dentist is Like Choosing Their Pediatrician

The staff at Jared R. Anderson, DDS, PC, understands this.
Instilling good habits early, in an environment that’s comfortable
and fun, is essential for a lifetime of good oral health.
Children are not able to brush well on their own. Because of this,
it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily
dental care. This ensures thorough cleaning as well as the
development of proper dental habits.
Little kids tend to eat more often during the day (grazing). This
results in a prolonged exposure to acid (every time you eat you make
acid), which may cause more cavities.
A tooth that is not as clean as it should be will be exposed to acid
when food and juice contact it. This acid often speeds up the
development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor
dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish
to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce the chance of
your child having a cavity. Sealants may be recommended!
