Your child’s first dental visit can impact their future visits. At Coastal Cosmetic Dentistry in Virginia Beach, VA, we offer pediatric dental care. We work diligently to build a trusting relationship with you and your family in our safe and child-friendly dental office. Dr. Cappy Sinclair and his experienced staff will ensure that your child’s first, and future, dental visits are positive and rewarding.
A common pediatric dental problem is tooth decay. The best way to prevent cavities and tooth decay in children is through regular visits to the dentist and routine teeth cleanings. Dr. Sinclair will see children as young as age four after their primary teeth come in. We want our patients, regardless of age, to feel comfortable in our dental office so they can receive the care they need.
It is important to provide your child with good dental hygiene and oral habits that will last well into their adult life. Most children begin teething around six months and usually get all of their baby teeth by the age of three. Protecting your child’s oral health is important. We take dental education seriously and believe in creating strong foundations in disease prevention and home care.
By beginning dental care early, your child is less likely to develop complex dental concerns such as cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Routine dental checkups are key to protecting your child’s oral and overall health.
