A pediatric dentist is a dental professional who is specialized in treating children’s teeth. When you take your child into Children's Dental Care & Orthodontics at an early age, your child’s oral health will be benefitted.

Bringing your child in to see Dr. Carla LaLande can build a foundation for good oral care for the rest of their lives. They can learn how to properly care for their teeth, which can help them develop a routine that will clean their smile until adulthood. If they don’t visit a pediatric dentist at this critical time, there may be detrimental effects on their oral health.

Dental appointments will also teach your child responsibility for their actions. If they don’t take good care of their smile, they could suffer severe consequences. For example, if they eat too many sweets and have a poor oral hygiene routine, they can suffer cavities that will need to be treated with dental fillings at our dental office in Las Vegas, Nevada. They will also learn that if they take good care of their teeth and gums, they will have a strong and healthy smile.

If you have any questions about why your child should see a pediatric dentist, please don’t hesitate to call our office at 702-254-8858 and talk to a member of our dental team. We look forward to helping you!
