Children’s Dentist in Lincoln, NE
Healthy Smiles for Lincoln Kids!
Your child’s precious smile needs regular dental attention every six months just like yours, and children as young as one should begin to see the dentist. We recommend that they first come with you to one of your dental appointments for a "Happy Visit", which means we'll help them get used to the sights and sounds of our Lincoln, NE dental office, and provide a quick check for proper development. Our caring and gentle team makes children’s dentistry fun, creating positive associations with the dentist that your child can carry with them for a lifetime.
Baby teeth serve many important functions, including giving your child confidence when they smile, helping them to form words when they begin to speak, as well as placeholders for adult teeth as they begin to erupt. It’s important to make sure that your child’s baby teeth, as well as his or her permanent teeth, remain healthy. Dental caries are the most common childhood disease, but the good news is, it’s preventable with proper professional and home care.
