Westfield Family Dentist Providing Personalized Care
If you have one or more children, finding a good dental office committed to family dentistry is important. After all, adults aren’t the only ones with oral health needs. Children need help too, just like the rest of us, and Westfield family dentist Dr. David Weinman and his team are working hard every day to meet the needs of our young patients. If you’re from Cranford, NJ or a surrounding area, contact us today to schedule an appointment!
One of the primary ways we do this is through regular checkups and cleanings. These are important because they give Dr. Weinman a chance to check your child’s smile for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. Both can wreak havoc on a developing smile if left untreated. To help your little one maintain great oral health, we recommend bringing your son or daughter in twice a year so that our team can keep a close eye on how he or she is doing. If you’ve just had your first child and aren’t sure when to bring them in, you should know it’s a good idea to do that around his or her second or third birthday.
During a first visit, we can help your child become accustomed to the sights, sounds, and friendly faces at our Westfield family dental office. But even more important, Dr. Weinman can make sure your little one’s smile is developing as it should. We can also begin teaching your child about the importance of brushing and flossing. Helping children develop healthy habits like these early on is important. By making regular care a priority, we can help your child establish a routine that will stay with him or her for years to come. But aside from providing patients of all ages with great care, family dentistry also involves preventive and general care, with services like dental sealants, gum disease therapy, fillings, and more.
