Your child’s first trip to the dentist should be a happy and memorable one. Let our team of highly trained dental professionals show your child that it is fun to go to the dentist!
Children have unique dental concerns. Putnam Dental Associates offers many treatments to address these concerns. A vital part of a comprehensive preventative plan, sealants protect the teeth from the bacteria that cause decay and help to prevent the need for expensive future treatments such as fillings and crowns.
Our team consists of the most knowledgeable and highly trained professionals in the dental field. In addition, the team caters to the needs of your child to ensure that he/she is comfortable, feels safe, and leaves with an experience that they will remember for a long while. Kids love coming here because they have fun, and they know that when they come through our doors, they are surrounded by people that really care about them.
Putnam Dental Associates hosts several complimentary informational seminars each year specific to pediatric dentistry and information for new and expecting parents. Please check out our Events/Seminars page to stay informed.
One of the primary benefits of pediatric dentistry is being able to educate children early on regarding the importance of oral health. With early training, they are more apt to practice good dental hygiene in their adult years.
We believe in providing parents with the tools and education they need to teach their children about good oral health. Although routine dental exams and regular brushing and flossing are extremely important, good preventative also includes a well-balanced healthy diet. Because your child’s teeth are extremely sensitive, they are more susceptible to developing enamel erosion and tooth decay if their diet is high in sugar.
If your child sucks his or her thumb or uses a pacifier, our dentists can also make recommendations for the best pacifiers on the market. We can also provide strategies and dental appliances for thumb sucking cessation.
