Exams & Checkups
Improve Your Child’s Oral Health with the Help of a Specialist
Helping children feel confident about visiting the dentist so they can enjoy a lifetime of healthier smiles can be a challenge. At our Highlands Ranch dental office, our entire team understands what it takes to provide children and special needs patients a gentle and educational experience they deserve.
With regular checkups and exams from Dr. Sierk, we can catch problems in their early stages and prevent significant damage.
What Happens During your Child’s First Dental Visit
Parents and caregivers of young patients are welcome in our treatment rooms to keep children comfortable during their pediatric teeth cleaning and preventive dental appointments. In addition to providing treatment for individual teeth, we also use appointment times to provide instructions on better at-home dental care. We address questions you or your child may have about brushing, flossing, or our dental office in general. Our entire team ensures that your child knows just what to expect and can feel confident about their treatment.
We take the time to acclimate your child to our dental home. Dr. Sierk counts your child’s teeth and check the surface of each one. If children have existing decay, we can provide pediatric fillings and restorative dental crowns to protect their oral health and function. For anxious patients, we ensure more relaxed dentistry with safe and effective sedation.
Dr. Sierk Welcomes Children and Special Needs Patients for Routine Dental CareAbove all, it's important for parents to reinforce the idea that going to the dentist is a normal and routine part of life. It's also important for kids to see that their parents feel comfortable about dental visits. Talking about the dentist using positive and upbeat language is just as important as making sure your children brush and floss every day.
