Keeping Your Child’s Smile Healthy & Bright
Our Tarrytown pediatric dentist, Dr. Kumar, specializes in preventative dentistry for kids. She firmly believes that preventative dentistry is the best dentistry and with check-ups, a solid homecare regimen and fluoride treatments, we can keep your child’s little pearly whites healthy and cavity-free.
Your Partner in Preventative Dental Care
We’ll teach you and your child how to keep their teeth and gums strong and squeaky clean so they can avoid cavities and other issues. We make sure you have the knowledge and tools you need to create an amazing oral hygiene routine at home. By combining homecare with regular check-ups and cleanings, your child will be on the path to a healthy smile.
Dental cleanings are super important because we use special tools to get rid of hardened plaque that can’t be eliminated with a regular toothbrush. We also examine your child’s mouth and can spot problems in their earliest stages while they’re still preventable or easy to treat. Our experienced team members are gentle, thorough and know how to make cleanings fun.
Dr. Kumar will chat with you about your child’s fluoride intake. Fluoride is nature’s cavity fighter and it’s essential for strengthening and protecting children’s teeth. Fluoride treatments, like the tasty ones we offer at our office, can be an important part of your child’s preventative dental care.
We Make it Awesome
When kids like going to the dentist, it can really set the stage for a healthy smile for life. Our office is kid-friendly and bright and we strive to make dental visits a positive experience. We let your child set the pace at their early appointments. We also use behavioral techniques and talk with kids on their level, so they feel comfortable and safe.
It’s usually recommended kids have two dental cleanings per year.
By age 18, 78% of people in the U.S. have had at least one cavity.
Kids should floss at least once a day for healthy teeth and gums!
