Do you treat children?
We welcome your entire family to our Rocky River, OH dental office, including your youngest family members. We invite your children for their first dental office visit between the ages of two and four. Meeting your child at a young age and helping them grow accustomed to the dental office atmosphere will help them to have a more positive dental experience in the future.
Your child’s first visit will likely be a “meet and greet” type of appointment. Then Dr. Canepa will perform an examination to make sure everything is progressing normally. We will always use gentle techniques and speak to your child in a way that they can understand so we provide the most pleasant experience for your child right from the start.
We work with parents on oral hygiene instruction so you can help your child stay healthy, as well as educating you on what to expect regarding development. We also offer nutritional counseling.
As your child ages and becomes better at communication and cooperation, we will provide a dental cleaning, exam, and eventually take x-rays and offer preventive treatments such as fluoride and sealants. Dr. Canepa will also provide an orthodontic evaluation because early intervention can often make treatment more successful.
