North Idaho Dental Group in Coeur d'Alene and Sandpoint provides a positive, upbeat environment for everyone to enjoy. We are sensitive to the dental fears and anxieties of children, and we’ll work with the entire family to make sure that your experience is exceptional.
Our dentists are comfortable with all phases of children’s dental care, including cleanings, fillings, orthodontia, crowns and more.
Why should children see the dentist?
Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating and other medical issues down the road.
When should children visit the dentist for the first check-up?
In order to prevent dental problems, your child should see the dentist when the first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday.
What can I expect during my child's first visit?
On a child's first visit we like to get them comfortable with the dental office environment. Your hygienists will usually perform proper brushing and flossing techniques. Children can also expect an exam and their first cleaning, depending on their age.
