Pediatric dental care at Mosaic

Our friendly, caring dentists make sure your kids feel comfortable in the dental chair by keeping them laughing and having fun. Building their trust is our number one goal.

When to schedule your child’s first dental appointment

Good dental habits for kids start early! It’s never too early to start brushing your baby’s teeth and teaching your kids the importance of good oral hygiene. Healthy habits are the best way to prevent cavities and other issues later on.

We recommend bringing your kids to their first dental visits by age one or as soon as they get their first tooth.

We can show you how to brush your baby’s teeth, answer any questions you might have, and help you motivate your kids to brush and floss every day.

What to expect at your child’s first dentist visit

At your child’s first dental appointment, we’ll spend time getting to know you and your child and answering any questions or concerns you might have about their dental health.

During our initial visit, we’ll cover:

  • Your child’s oral health history
  • Important developmental milestones
  • Practical strategies for preventing cavities and other issues
  • How to build healthy brushing and flossing habits
  • Ways to prevent injury

Dental care for children with special needs

Kids with special needs require understanding and patience, as well as personalized treatments that fit their particular circumstances. We strive to balance the emotional well-being and safety of your child in a supportive environment for the most effective dental care. As always, you know your kids best, so please share your thoughts and questions with us.
