At Bitesize Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that your child is the most cherished part of your family. As members of your child’s health care team, we view our responsibility in your child’s health as a privilege and dedicate ourselves to making each appointment a positive and productive experience.
We work closely with parents just like you to keep your little one’s smile healthy and comfortable. By approaching dental care with a preventive philosophy, we can often help your child avoid common dental conditions, such as decay. A preventive approach is the most effective way to ensure happy smiles and healthy development as your child grows.
Professional Pediatric Dental Cleanings
One of the cornerstones of preventive dentistry includes regular professional dental cleanings. Even with diligence and exceptional home care habits, plaque and tartar can develop in the areas of your child’s teeth that tooth brushing and flossing alone cannot reach – between teeth and beneath the gum line. Tartar can harbor bacteria and cause decay, in addition to irritating delicate gum tissue.
Our hygiene team addresses each child’s needs on an individual basis and teams up with parents to eliminate bacteria and protect those precious smiles. We can share best practices, home care tips, and nutritional information to assist in achieving the best oral health possible.
Though dental cleanings in very young children are often relatively quick and easy, these regular visits to our office allow us to closely monitor your child's health and help them grow accustomed to the dental office. This simple step can create the foundation for future dental health habits and eliminate any apprehension when it comes to dentistry.
A Gentle, Personalized Approach
Each child is different, and our individualized approach to care meets your child’s needs at their current level. We avoid pressuring kids beyond their comfort zones and focus instead on positive reinforcement, keeping them entertained and relaxed, and avoiding any stressful language or actions that may affect their long-term feelings about dentistry.
Our goal is to create a unique experience that encourages a positive life-long relationship with dentistry so they can maintain overall health and wellness supported by healthy teeth and gums.
Outstanding Professional Care
Our skilled hygienists are accustomed to working with kids of all ages and have a knack for completing professional dental cleanings quickly, thoroughly, and gently. We start by removing any tartar from your child’s teeth and then we polish them to remove any residual debris. A regular cleaning schedule allows us to perform visual inspections to note changes in health or growth patterns that may require your attention.
We Encourage Communication!
Our hygienists and dentists are available for questions regarding your child’s health and development. Both Dr. Raf and Dr. Rupin welcome open dialogue so that both you and your child feel comfortable and confident in the care you receive in our Williamsburg, Brooklyn, dental office. As your child grows, we will incorporate age-appropriate education to empower them in maintaining their own oral health now and in the future.
