Dr. Betzy Lara-Perdue is a general dentist who loves to work with children. We love welcoming children to North Forest Family Dental Care, and work hard to provide an atmosphere that is kid-friendly and free of stress and anxiety. Please contact us at 936-271-3338 to learn more about our kid-friendly dental care in The Woodlands, Texas, and to make your child’s appointment with our dentist.
We recommend that children begin visiting the dentist as soon as their first tooth emerges for parental counseling. This usually occurs at about age 1.
Children 3 years of age and older will first be greeted by our dental assistants in the waiting room. At that time, you can inform our assistants of the reason for your child’s visit to our office. Your child will then be brought back into the operatory by our dental assistant to get an x-ray taken, and then receive a dental exam and cleaning. We will let your child brush his or her teeth so that we can check over any missing areas with them, and will review oral hygiene instructions.
Following the appointment, our dentist will meet with you and inform you of any findings as well as a treatment plan for your child.
As a parent, your primary responsibility is to instill good dental hygiene habits in your child and maintain a regular schedule of dental visits as he or she grows up. Children who learn to take care of their teeth at a young age are more likely to have good dental habits as adults and are much less likely to have dental problems.
