Seahorse Kids Dental is a modern children's dental office created for patient comfort and parent convenience. We specialize in providing personalized, high-quality dental care for infants, children and adolescents in a fun and friendly environment! Our doctors and nurturing staff will empower you and your child with the knowledge and skills needed to create a brilliant, healthy smile.
Your child's first dental visit is the most important one and we welcome children of all ages! The ADA recommends that each child should visit the dentist by the first birthday. No matter your child's age, we are here to help guide you and your child through this new environment and help grow healthy little smiles.
Our staff will welcome you and your child and assist you with any questions you may have. Your child can hang out in the reception room's special play area before his or her appointment!
Our goal is to help your child feel comfortable and that starts with their first visit. We will walk your child through each step to make sure they are at ease. Depending on age, your child's first step will be sitting comfortably on your lap or on our dental chair. We demonstrate how we count teeth with teeny tiny mirrors, letting them follow along to help make sure we counted right! During their visit we evaluate your child's teeth and gums, checking for any cavities, plaque, sores and other dental concerns and prescribe any needed radiographs. From there we clean and polish their teeth with fun, flavored toothpastes to make them extra strong and shiny.
