Benefits of Working with a Family Dentist Offering Pediatric Care

Visiting a dentist on a regular basis is just a routine for many adults. However, what about children? How often should a child visit the dentist? What type of dentist should they see? How old should they be for their first appointment? All of these questions and more can be answered by the team of Ridgeview Family Dental in Missouri.

Why should children see a dental provider with pediatric experience?

Children have different dental needs than adults. They are also developing their smile over many years with baby teeth, and transition into their adult smile over the course of several years. Working with a dentist who has pediatric experience is an effective way of addressing common dental concerns in children. Additionally, pediatric dentists have a special chairside manner to deal with younger children who may be anxious about visiting the dentist. Our professionals walk children through the process of examining the smile and cleaning the teeth so they are comfortable throughout their appointment.

What services are offered for children?


The team of Ridgeview Family Dental offers many of the same services for children as they do for adults. Additionally, children may benefit from other treatment options including:

  • Orthodontics
  • Sealants
  • Fluoride applications
  • Dental education

Our professionals are excited to work with children in our practice, as well as servicing their parents!
