For your children, we offer many treatment options and accommodations in order to meet their needs.
Your Child’s First Visit
Choosing the right dentist for your child early on is very important and beneficial in maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Having a family dentist that you can build a long-term, trusting relationship with allows your dental practitioner to follow your child’s oral health from a young age into adulthood, allowing them to provide you with the best treatment plans and personalized options. Their knowledge of your child’s dental history and unique needs will lead to improved care time after time.
At Mario A. Godinez, DDS, you and your child can expect to receive the highest standard of care from our dentist and team from the moment you contact our practice. We understand that children can be fearful or hesitant about their first dental visit. That’s why we offer parents the option to schedule a complimentary “Happy Visit” for their children at our office. This gives children the time to familiarize themselves with our office, dentist, and friendly dental team before parents can decide if we are the perfect match, and the opportunity to feel comfortable with their dentist prior to scheduling them for their first treatment. Additionally, we also offer TV’s in our operatories, so your children can watch their favorite cartoons.
Our team believes that there is nothing more important in a dentist-patient relationship than trust, especially when caring for children. That’s why we strive to keep patients and children as involved as possible in their own care. We believe that achieving healthy gums and teeth are a team effort, and we always welcome our patients to communicate their unique needs and goals so we can develop the most effective treatment plan together.
Building Healthy Habits
At our office, your child’s dental care does not end with your appointment. Our team always takes the time to ensure that your children are educated about their oral health so we can help them develop healthy habits at home, including, but not limited to, proper brushing and flossing techniques. We are always happy to provide our patients with tips on how to maintain their smiles.
