Hinsdale Dentist for Kids
Nurturing Young Smiles
For anyone, particularly children, going to the dentist can be intimidating. That's why at Hinsdale Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we offer specialized treatment tailored to meet your child’s specific needs.
Start Early to Keep Your Kids Smiling
Early dental care is crucial to your child’s dental health, so at Hinsdale Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we're dedicated to making the process as seamless as possible.
Dr. Susan Blair is dual board-certified in orthodontics and pediatric dentistry, so she understands the unique physical and emotional needs of children. She uses a reassuring and enjoyable approach and will let your child know just what’s going to happen during their visit.
At our Hinsdale office, we’re fully equipped to provide your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
What to Expect at Your Child's First Appointment
Our team tailors each first visit at Hinsdale Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry to your child’s age and needs.
Whether your child needs time to become comfortable with the dentist chair — or they’re prepared for a dental exam, cleaning, and topical fluoride treatment when they first step into the office — we’ll make sure our pace meets the needs of your child’s comfort level.
We’ll conduct a thorough evaluation of their teeth and mouth, as well as provide you with the necessary knowledge and tools to prevent potential dental issues from developing.
We prioritize preventive measures, and X-rays will only be taken when they’re crucial to diagnosing a specific dental problem since we aim to minimize their use.
The Importance of Early Dental Care
Keeping baby teeth healthy will prevent future health issues and pave the way for healthy permanent teeth, preventing pain, infection, and development issues.
Early dental care also ensures pain prevention and other developmental issues. Neglecting a child’s cavities can cause pain and infection, leading to problems with their developing permanent teeth.
We understand that your child’s first dental visit can be stressful for you as a parent as well. Our team is always happy to hear your concerns and answer any questions you have to give both you and your child the best dental experience possible.
