Family Dentistry An Overview
Apex Dental provides the convenience of a one-stop dentist office for families in Northborough, MA. We offer dental services tailored to the unique stages of oral development. Family dentistry helps build strong, positive patient-doctor relationships. Patients who enjoy visiting the dentist, visit more often and enjoy a more stable, healthy smile.
Good habits start early. When it comes to children’s dental health, it is important to establish routines early. This should include daily brushing and flossing, combined with regular professional dental cleanings. Dr. Robert Gauthier provides dental care for the whole family including pediatric dentistry for children starting at age three. Children younger than three may be seen by special appointment or for emergency care.
As your child grows, their oral health needs change. Our staff will monitor the oral development of young patients to be sure that a stable, healthy bite is supporting normal speech development and there are no signs of musculoskeletal concerns related to the jaw.
A child’s dental health is important to their overall long-term health. If you have questions about pediatric dentistry please call (508) 506-1691 our dental care team. Our knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer questions about your child’s oral health during your routine dental exam.
Kid-Friendly Northborough Dental Office
It is not uncommon for children to experience anxiety and fear when visiting the dentist. One of the best ways to combat this fear is to not be anxious yourself. Children learn by example and can detect the emotions and anxiety of their parents or caretakers.
Our Apex dentists recommend that parents bring their children to their dental checkups to help normalize visiting the dentist. By the time your child is ready to sit in the chair themselves, they will be more likely to feel confident and safe. Our staff works to create a welcoming, comfortable environment that your child will enjoy coming into. Making dentist visits enjoyable relieves stress for your child, and for you.
