Choosing The Right Family Dentist
Finding the right dentist can be difficult, especially when you are looking for one you trust to treat your children. Since pediatric dentistry is different than general dentistry, it is important to find a dentist that has training and experience treating younger patients. Dr. Jen Kim and her team at Jen Kim Family and Cosmetic Dentistry enjoy treating children and strive to offer the best in pediatric and family dentistry in the Kirkland, WA area.
Finding a Family Dentist
Experience – Dentist that do not have experience working with children can find it difficult to treat younger patients. Many children are not only scared of the dentist, but will move and squirm when in the exam chair, so having a dentist that knows how to deal with fussy children will make both you and your child feel more comfortable.
Procedures – It is important for children to get the same dental care as adults, even though they will eventually lose their baby teeth. Poor dental hygiene and tooth decay can cause damage to adult teeth as they develop under your child’s gum line. We offer fluoride treatments to help strengthen your child’s teeth against cavities, and dental sealants to protect the tops of teeth from tooth decay causing bacteria.
Atmosphere – We provide both our child and adult patients with a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable so you can feel comfortable in the care that we are providing your child so you and your child will feel more at ease when you come in. We will also help them learn good oral hygiene habits so they can take better care of their teeth while they are at home as well.
We understand that switching dentists can be stressful when you have a family, which is why we do our best to make the transition as easy as possible. We go above and beyond general dentistry so we can meet and exceed your needs.
