West Jordan Pediatric Dentistry, 7613 Jordan Landing Blvd. #210, West Jordan, UT 84084. 801-280-9595

We believe early dental care can promote a lifetime of healthy smiles for your child. Our primary goal for your child’s dental development is to achieve and maintain optimum oral health through advances in techniques, technologies and by maintaining their scheduled dental exams.

A Child’s First Dental Visit

A child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around his/her second birthday. The most important part of the visit is getting to know and becoming comfortable with a doctor and his staff. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. We usually tell the child to sit in a parent’s lap in the exam room.

Teen Dental Care

For teenagers, appearance is important, and beautiful, healthy teeth are part of a good self-image. As teens grow, they often snack on foods that can cause cavities, so a healthy diet is important to promote strong teeth. Our pediatric dentist can emphasize the importance of maintaining an excellent oral hygiene routine and eating healthy. When your teen has been seen by our practice since their childhood, it’s also easier for us to recognize and diagnose problems that could need orthodontic care.

Special Needs Patient Care

Our pediatric dentist haa acquired specialty training to treat special needs patients, people with medical, physical or mental disabilities, in a caring, comfortable environment. Our dentists have obtained the skills and knowledge required to administer dental care to special needs patients. We strive to provide a positive dental experience and educate patients on the importance of maintaining a good oral hygiene routine at home.
