At Family Dental Care of Farmington, we care for the whole family! There is often no need to take your child to a separate pediatric dentist or children’s dentist. We love children! In fact, we have many patients who have been coming to us since they were children, and now bring their own children to us. It is so important to start youngsters on the right path when it comes to dental care. We participate in the Home By One Program, an initiative of the Connecticut Department of Public Health, which encourages all children to have a dental home by their first birthday. Good dental care begins when that very first baby tooth appears in the mouth, and we can help parents to make sure their children’s teeth remain healthy.
Dr. Malon and Dr. Moran place a great emphasis on preventive care, including the application of topical fluoride to children’s teeth. Placing sealants on permanent teeth as they erupt can also help to prevent cavities so that your kids’ teeth can stay as healthy as possible.
