Your Children’s Dentist: How We Care For Your Littlest Smile
There’s a simple reason that you’ve come to the website of a pediatric dentist. Children require a special kind of dental care, and you simply won’t find that at your typical family practice. At Tic Tac Tooth, your most precious smile will have the attention of a board-certified pediatric dentist with over a decade’s worth of experience.
Dr. Asim Awan has spent years training and educating himself specifically to help children in addition to his regular dental training. Of course, this doesn’t just mean that he’s able to clinically treat your child-- he’ll also be able to create a kid-friendly environment that will make sure they are calm, happy, and relaxed in the office.
How We Help Your Child
While we are a pediatric practice, we are actually able to treat a wide range of patients ranging from infants to 21 years old. Most of the time, our older patients (if you can call 21 old) started with us when they were much younger, meaning that our doctors and team have a complete understanding of their oral health, medical history, personality, needs, wants, and goals. Establishing a relationship with a dentist from a young age through early adulthood is one of the best things you can do to guarantee that your child will have a healthy, beautiful smile.
For young children and infants, our primary goal when they first come to see us is to make sure they are comfortable at our office. These initial visits are very important in helping them establish a positive relationship with going to the dentist. Every treatment will be performed as gently as possible, and we’ll keep a close eye on your child to make sure they are having a good time. By keeping things light and fun in the beginning, it will be much easier for your child to continue coming to Tic Tac Tooth and taking care of their teeth for years to come.
For our teenaged and older patients, we can provide more advanced treatments that are appropriate for their current stage of development. In addition to basic treatments like checkups and cleanings, we’ll also be able to offer cosmetic procedures to help with the appearance of their smile. Whether they’ve come to us as a small child or a young adult, we’ll have exactly what their smile needs to look and feel its best.
We Help Children with Special Needs
Do you have a child with a mental or physical developmental disorder? We understand this can make seeking out dental care much more complicated, and that you just want to make sure your child will be safe and well taken care of. At Tic Tac Tooth, we are more than happy to treat any and all kinds of children. If they have a smile, they will always have a place here.
Our team is specially trained and highly-experienced to help children with a variety of developmental conditions, and we’ll be sure to listen to you so we can learn about your child’s particular wants and needs. We’ll do everything we can to make sure they have a pleasant dental experience just like any other child.
We love treating children because of the unbridled enthusiasm and energy that they bring to the office. It’s so exciting watching their faces when you can tell that they’ve just learned something.
