Pediatric Dentists in the Cupertino and Saratoga, California Area
It’s important for your child to have healthy teeth, and the friendly outgoing dentists at the Dr. Rabitz clinic help kids from the Cupertino and Saratoga, CA, area to enjoy brushing, flossing and getting regular checkups and cleanings. We provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere, and our dentists and trained office staff will explain every procedure in language that’s easy to understand for kids from infancy to adolescence.
For the best outcomes, bring in your child for a first appointment after they get their first baby tooth or by their first birthday. Then, schedule appointments for cleaning and general checkups every six months.
We’ll look for cavities, potential cavities or any other signs of trouble. We will also include an exhaustive cleaning to remove all plaque and tartar and keep teeth looking fresh and white. If necessary, we will also X-ray your child’s teeth. Your child can choose to talk with our friendly doctors as they work or can watch a movie during their time in the chair.
When the checkup and cleaning are complete, we’ll discuss what other procedures, if any, may be necessary. These could include treatments that are recommended specifically for children such as dental sealants, which help keep cavities at bay throughout life. We can also go over fluoride and what supplements may be necessary in addition to providing education for the parent and child alike about how to brush and floss, how to use toothpaste, the best diets for healthy teeth and more.
