About Pediatric Dentistry
Having a healthy, beautiful smile boosts your confidence in every stage of life. MINT dentistry focuses on giving each child a fun and stress-free experience when they visit our practice in Allen, TX, so they will form a positive association with dental health that reinforces good, lifelong habits. Parents should schedule visits for their children to MINT dentistry at least twice a year for dental cleanings and exams. During their visit, our team of board-certified dentists will assess your child's development, look for areas of concern, and teach your child how to care for their mouth. MINT dentistry has been named “Best Family Dentist” by Consumers Choice two years in a row. When your child arrives, we will give them an iPad loaded with fun, parent-approved apps and videos to keep them busy during their visit. Give your child the gift of a beautiful smile by scheduling an appointment for them at MINT dentistry in Allen, TX.
Problems like tooth decay and cavities can develop as early as two years old. MINT dentistry suggests you bring your child for their first visit by the time they are a year and a half, so a MINT dental professional can check for any development problems. Your child may have their baby teeth for a while, so it is important that they stay healthy while they wait for their adult teeth to grow in. This starts with scheduling appointments every six months for a professional cleaning.
What to Expect
At the start of your child's appointment, we want to help them feel safe so they have a positive experience. We will explain everything that is being done and why so they feel more comfortable with the process. They will put on MINT sunglasses as they relax in a comfortable treatment chair. One of our MINT team members will begin a simple exam of your child’s mouth and then a quick cleaning. Preventive treatments like fluoride rinses or sealants may be recommended to help protect the teeth as your child grows older. If we find a problem, we'll develop a personalized plan for treatment that focuses on your child's needs and comfort level. Our office is committed to using cutting-edge dental technology and advanced techniques to ensure our pediatric procedures are fast and comfortable while still effective.
Should we find a concern in your child’s oral health exam, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment for treatment. Every dentist and team member at MINT dentistry is skilled at comprehensive dental care for your family that fits your needs. If your child needs teeth straightening, a tooth-colored filling, or treatment for a cracked tooth, we are happy to help. For healthy teeth and gums, MINT dentistry recommends you visit our office every six months for your child. To maintain the results of a cleaning or another procedure, we suggest following a daily home care routine, which we will help demonstrate to your child.
The MINT Commitment
Pediatric exams once a year along with cleanings twice a year are generally included if you have dental insurance. If a treatment or procedure is required, we will speak to your insurance provider to determine your benefits and out-of-pocket costs. If you don't have dental insurance, MINT dentistry takes many payment methods so you can easily fit your child's dental care into your budget. MINT dentistry believes that a healthy mouth and beautiful smile are invaluable assets, and we are committed to helping your family. Ask our team to learn more about the MINT Discount Plan.
