Our team at Purcellville Pediatric Dentistry is committed to making magical smiles! Our top priority is to build relationships with our patients that last throughout childhood and into young adulthood. We want our patients to be relaxed and to look forward to seeing us, knowing that their dental visit will be gentle, painless, and fun.
From the moment you walk through our doors, you will be provided with the best pediatric dental care in a warm and friendly environment. We are sensitive to children's needs, and it is our goal to engage with each child to ensure a fun and comfortable visit. We will explain all dental care procedures and answer questions in a language that even the youngest child can understand.
Our core philosophy is that a lifetime of magical smiles starts with prevention and education. At every visit we focus on teaching children and parents about oral health and good dental hygiene practices, reinforcing those lessons with plenty of patience, encouragement and support.
During your child’s visit, we will:
- Review dental and medical history forms.
- Take x-rays of the teeth and mouth.
- Clean and polish your child’s teeth, checking the teeth and gums for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
- Teach good oral hygiene and diet instruction.
- Conduct an orthodontic evaluation.
- Discuss clinical and x-ray findings with you.
- Create an individual treatment plan and answer any questions you may have.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist starting at age one, and then every six months, for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
Our office is a ‘Fun Zone’
At Purcellville Pediatric Dentistry, we have designed our dental office with children in mind, including a children’s play room, where our patients can watch movies and play video games while waiting. Following each appointment, the children are rewarded with balloons, toys, and a dental hygiene kit.
We offer a “No Cavities Club” rewards program to encourage our young patients to keep up with their home dental practices between visits. We also engage our young patients with many activities throughout their visit, such as coloring contests, guessing game contests, holiday fun, and other amusing activities throughout the year.
