At Gentle Touch Dentistry, we offer compassionate dentistry to patients of all ages. We pride ourselves in creating a welcoming and relaxing environment in which you and your family will feel comfortable. We are pleased that you are considering our team for your family’s dental needs.
Your child’s smile is precious. A pleasant dental experience at an early age fosters a lifetime of healthy dental habits. We appreciate the opportunity to address your child’s dental needs and make a positive, lasting impression.
Starting good habits early
One of the primary goals of pediatric dentistry is to educate children and parents on the oral hygiene habits that will keep your teeth healthy. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, early dental visits should begin by the time a child has reached one year of age or earlier.
Essentially, dental care becomes important as soon as teeth have erupted. In our practice, we place a high priority on education as a proven form of prevention. In addition to exams and cleanings, we discuss the hazards of poor dietary habits and the benefits of hygiene and nutrition.
Bring your child for a visit at three years of age, or before if you notice problems. During a gentle exam in a soothing environment, Dr. Chepyala will check for proper dental development, assess tooth and bite alignment, and look for tooth decay.
In our family-friendly practice, we offer a number of pediatric services, including exams, cleanings, x-rays, fluoride and sealant treatments, fillings, crowns, and pulpotomies (root canal therapy on baby teeth) as needed for comfort and oral health.
