Choosing the Best Dentist for Your Kids

best dentist for kids - East HoustonEstablishing good oral health habits for your kids starts at an early age. According to recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, you should start bringing your children to the dentist when they get their first tooth, and no later than when they turn 1. It’s important to bring your children to an experienced pediatric dentist who will provide the dental care they need while making their experience at the dentist’s office relaxing and positive. But with so many options available in the Houston area, it can be challenging to determine the best dentist for your kids.

When choosing a pediatric dentist to care for your children, make sure that you evaluate the following factors:

  • Flexible scheduling – Life can be very hectic when you have young kids. Juggling the many different appointments for your children with your work and personal obligations can be challenging. Make sure your pediatric dentist offers flexible office hours – early morning, evening and Saturday appointments – so that it will be easier to fit your child’s dental appointment into your schedule.
  • Child-friendly office – Your child’s dentist should have an office environment that puts young children at ease in order to make their dental experience positive. A waiting room with toys and games to engage your child while they wait for their checkup is crucial. In addition, a pediatric dentist that gives young children a small prize when they have a good checkup will reinforce the strong oral hygiene habits you’re trying to instill in your child.
  • Good rapport with children – Make sure your kid’s dentist has a great rapport with children. Is the dentist funny? Can the dentist connect with children and make the checkup a smooth process? This is important.
  • Extensive experience working with kids – Pediatric dentists specialize in working with young children, and they understand the unique oral health issues impacting kids. Always ask a potential dentist for your kids about their training, background and experience providing dental services for young children.

I absolutely love this Dentist!! I’ve been taking my babies here for almost 5 years now and I wouldn’t take them any other place. Dr. Khavari, Alicia, Christina, and Raquel are all super sweet, always so gentle with my girls, and are really amazing at what they do. As a mother, it’s the best feeling knowing your babies are in the best of hands.
