Our friendly dentists, Dr. Garpetti and Dr. Elliott, are thrilled to not only help you reach your oral health goals, but to also help your children reach their oral health goals!
We are so excited to provide pediatric dentistry in Boise, Idaho, and we look forward to working with your children. We recommend first bringing your child into LIFESmiles Dental by the age of 1 or 6 months after their first tooth has erupted. This appointment is a simple, pain-free visit that allows your dentist to meet your child in a friendly and non-threatening way. This will help your child feel comfortable in the dental office and will also help them develop a trusting relationship with the dentist.
During your child’s first appointment, our dentist will gently examine your child’s oral cavity. This will be a kind, gentle way of visually evaluating your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw to ensure the best oral health possible at this time. If it is needed, our dentist will provide a fluoride treatment. This treatment will be in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish and it will be carefully placed in your child’s mouth. This is a great way to help your child have strong, reliable teeth as they grow.
To schedule your child’s first appointment with our dentist, call us today and talk to a member of our team!
