Dr. Chris and his team love welcoming children to Smile Moderne! We are committed to helping you care for your child’s teeth and to helping your child learn the good oral habits that lead to a lifetime of smiles. We will meet with children as young as 2 years of age to provide treatment, though we may refer your child to a specialist if they require more intensive care.
Our team understands the importance of building a positive, trusting relationship with your child. When you bring your child into our office, we will do everything possible to help them feel comfortable both with our team and in a dental environment in order to minimize anxiety and fear and help them receive care without difficulty. Our goal is to prevent your child from developing dental anxiety that will hinder them from receiving treatment in the future.
We recommend that you bring your child to meet with our dentist shortly after their first tooth erupts, and that you continue to bring them to our office every six months for routine preventive care. This allows Dr. Chris to monitor your child’s oral health, growth and development, and to provide any treatments that your child may need as soon as possible. At each of these visits, we will also review their oral hygiene and make recommendations on ways that you can help your child improve their oral health and home care.
We welcome you to call us at (949) 554-1563 for more information about children’s dentistry in Laguna Niguel, California, and to schedule your child’s appointment with Dr. Chris.
