Children’s Dentistry – Lake Forest, CA

Teaching your kids the right way to take care of their smile is very important. Our doctors would be glad to give both you & your child the oral hygiene education you need to keep you clean & cavity-free. We understand that children have different needs & sensitivities than adults & we address them all. Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors & the highest-quality care. While all these are important in caring for kids, they also require special attention in order to feel comfortable & respected. We offer the best of both worlds. Our dentists have extensive experience working with children & teens, so we can make the dental experience more enjoyable for everyone. By making kids comfortable with dentistry at a younger age, they’ll have the correct knowledge to provide them with a lifetime of excellent dental health!

Pediatric Dentistry

Your child’s dental care is very important to their development. We know visiting the dentist for the first time can be scary, so Lifetime Dental is happy to treat your child while he or she sits on your lap. Our goal is to develop a caring relationship with your child & to encourage proper oral hygiene that will last lifetime.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends an oral health consultation as soon as your child’s first tooth comes in or by their first birthday at the latest. Most children have a full set of baby teeth by age 3 & as many as 1 in 4 children has a cavity by age 4.

At this first visit, we’ll check for tooth decay and other dental problems, but we’ll also demonstrate how to clean & care for your child’s teeth & how to deal with other oral issues like teething & thumb sucking.
