At St. Johns Dental Care, we believe in high-quality dental care for the entire family. We love the energy that children bring to our office, and Dr. Connelly provides a relaxing and fun environment that both kids and parents can appreciate.
Teaching Effective Dental Health Practices
Preventative Dentistry is crucial for effective treatment. That means practicing how to properly care for your teeth at home, as well as visiting Dr. Connelly for regular checkups twice a year. Dental care is a long-term investment in your health because dental issues are easier to treat the sooner we can identify them.
Daily brushing and flossing along with routine visits are essential to prevent issues like tooth decay and gum disease. At St. Johns Dental Care, we teach all of our patients about the importance of a healthy diet and how to properly care for their smile.
Cavities and gum disease are caused by bacteria that feed on the plaque and tartar in your mouth. The more your children learn to care for their teeth effectively, the less they will have to deal with costly dental issues down the road.
Your Child’s First Visit
From the moment your child’s first tooth emerges, they will require proper dental care from Dr. Connelly. Their primary teeth or baby teeth are often called “nature’s braces” because they act as guides for the permanent teeth. That’s why it’s essential your children visit our office for routine hygiene visits biannually, so Dr. Connelly can monitor their progress and confirm they’re developing correctly.
Your St. Johns Family Dentist
One significant advantage of family dentistry is that you can schedule multiple appointments on the same day, which can save valuable time. Call us today to schedule an appointment for the entire family.
