The team at Oak Family Dental has years of experience working across all age groups. This experience includes young children, older adults, and everyone in between. And we are always happy to welcome new little smiles into our dental family.
#1 Trust and Relationship Building
Children seeing the dentist for the first time will be less nervous if they see someone that older adults in the family trust. You'll be able to reassure them honestly of the friendliness they'll encounter from our team. Likewise, you'll feel more at ease if your child sees someone you trust, someone you know will treat your child with patience and kindness.
Our team begins building relationships with children from their very first visit. We make them feel like family and encourage their questions. Our goal is that your child loves seeing the dentist as much as we love seeing them.
#2 Convenience for Busy Families
Because we have a team of dentists, it is usually easy to see your family members on the same day. With us, you'll not have to drive around town on various days to get your loved ones the dental care they need.
Whenever possible, we work with your schedule to make dentistry as easy and convenient as possible.
We also accept various dental insurance plans and have our own Oak Family Dental Membership for patients who do not have coverage. This plan allows you and your loved ones to receive reduced charge dental care for a low annual fee. Reach out to a team member to learn more about limits and exclusions.
Additionally, we work with CareCredit financing to make dentistry affordable and convenient for our families.
#3 Dentists Who Know Your Family's Oral Health History
Specific oral health conditions can run in families. So, when you keep your family's dental care in one location, your dentist can monitor potential issues that may present in your child's oral health.
At Oak Family Dental, we are always vigilant and work to prevent potential oral health issues before they arise, saving you time and money in the future.
#4 Family Records in a Single Location
If you move or your children change schools, it's convenient to have all your family's dental records in one location. This also makes it easier to share information electronically with healthcare providers and other relevant professionals.
About Our Children's Dentistry in Metairie, LA
We start seeing children around their first birthday or when the first tooth emerges from the gum. This early intervention allows the dentist to monitor tooth and jaw development closely. Initial visits are about observing and acclimating your child to our dental team and surroundings, but we also keep a keen eye on their oral development.
Eventually, as your child grows, we provide additional services:
- Comprehensive dental exams
- Professional teeth cleanings
- X-rays when necessary
Your child's dentist in Metairie, LA, may talk to you about dental sealants for your child if they have recurring cavities. We also provide fluoride treatments for healthy enamel.
Another part of children's dentistry is restorations. This can include dental crowns and tooth-colored fillings.
Of course, our dentists monitor your child for potential orthodontic issues and always talk to you about any findings or concerns. And we're always happy to answer your questions and provide tips for at-home care.
