The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry says it’s important to establish a “dental home” by the age of 1. A “dental home” is defined as the ongoing relationship between a dentist and a patient, which includes all aspects of oral health care in a comprehensive and family-oriented way. At Newtown, we take this seriously. The Newtown pediatric dentist experience is one to be remembered.
We go to great lengths to establish a feeling of a dental home for kids—from the kid-friendly environment to the interactive communication between patients and parents. Our kids’ dental practice is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of children—from infants to teenagers. We believe that every child deserves healthy teeth and gums, and our friendly and experienced staff is committed to making sure that your child receives the best possible care.
Super-Fun Indoor Play Area
When you first step into our office, you’ll be greeted with a warm and inviting atmosphere. We understand that going to a dentist can be stressful for children, so we’ve created a kid-friendly environment that is comfortable and calming. Our waiting area is equipped with a play area that features an indoor treehouse, a mini-trampoline, toys, puppets, and books—all to keep your child entertained while they wait. Plus, kids get treated in an under-the-sea-themed or sports-themed treatment room. And they get to pick a prize from a box stocked with special treats. You can take a tour here.
Dr. Chris and a Team of Experienced Pediatric Dental Pros
Kids love to visit with Dr. Chris. Not only has she had years of experience working with kids, she also has completed specialty training in pediatric medicine. And the whole Newtown pediatric team has years of experience working with children. Our super gentle touch helps put your child at ease. We take the time to explain what we’re doing and answer any questions that your child may have. Our goal is to make sure that your child feels comfortable and safe throughout their entire visit.
Personalized Treatment Plans
Our kids’ dental practice offers a full range of pediatric dental services, including cleanings, exams, fillings, and extractions. We also offer preventive care, such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants, to help keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong. We believe that prevention is the key to good oral health. In fact, we’ve developed a strong preventive program that has led to a 40% reduction in tooth decay for our patients. We’ll work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your child’s unique needs.
Orthodontic Specialists In-House
Housed in the same fun building as Newtown Dentistry for Kids, our orthodontic practice specializes in orthodontic treatments for patients of all ages—including children. Orthodontic consultations are free for all of our patients.
State-of-the-Art Dental Technologies
We are a technically savvy pediatric dental office, utilizing the most advanced diagnostic and treatment tools to provide optimum care for your child. Our digital X-rays are faster, safer, and more accurate than traditional X-rays. The special intraoral camera we use allows us to show you and your child exactly what we’re doing during their exam. This helps to reduce anxiety and helps your child feel more comfortable during their visit.
Focus on Education
One of the things that sets our kids’ dentistry apart from other pediatric dental practices is our focus on education. We believe that it’s important to educate both children and parents about good oral hygiene habits. We practice the “show-tell-do” experiential/interactive approach to caring for your child. Our dentists and staff will take the time to teach your child how to brush and floss properly and let them even practice on puppets, if they’re interested. Parents also like the tips we share on how to encourage good oral hygiene at home.
Essential Parental Communication
We understand that parents play a critical role in their child’s oral health, and we’ll work with you to make sure that you’re fully informed and involved in your child’s dental care. Not only do we keep you updated on your child’s progress, but we’ll also let you know if we see any issues developing that need to be addressed. We believe that open communication is key to a successful dental experience, and we’re committed to working closely with you to ensure that your child receives the best possible care.
Tailored Payment Options
Part of keeping a comfortable rapport with our patients and parents is being transparent about payments for services. We are always clear about the costs of care and procedures, and we’ll share with you any discounts and savings plans available—before you commit to receiving and paying for services.
At Newtown Dentistry for Kids, we’re passionate about being a top dentistry for kids. We believe that every child deserves a healthy, beautiful smile, and we’re committed to helping them achieve it. Whether your child needs a routine cleaning or more advanced orthodontic dental treatment, we’re here to provide the best possible dental care for your kids.
