Care for Infants
Your Baby’s First Dental Appointment
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that all children see a dentist when their first tooth emerges or when they turn 1 year old, whichever comes first. During your child’s first appointment, we will examine your child’s mouth, gently clean their teeth, and check for proper oral development. Dr. Stuckey will always take the time to answer any and all of your questions, giving you honest advice and tips about caring for your child’s smile.
Care for Little Smiles
Early Childhood Appointments
At the office of Patrick Stuckey, DDS, we help parents encourage little ones to develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. We offer new parents tips and advice about how to brush your child’s teeth until they can do it themselves (which is usually around the age of 6 or when they have enough dexterity to tie their own shoelaces).
During your child's appointment, one of our registered dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your child's teeth and Dr. Stuckey will check for any dental health issues. Nothing is more important than your child’s dental health, so we do everything we can to help your little one avoid common dental health issues like cavities and decay. Call today to schedule your child’s next routine visit!
Dental Care for Teens & Pre-Teens
Keeping Permanent Teeth Healthy
Adolescents will typically have all of their permanent teeth by the age of 12-13, so this is often a good time to start considering orthodontics. During these pre-teen and early teenage years, the risk of cavities increases if your children start to eat more sugar or neglect their oral hygiene. Routine appointments help you keep your child’s dental health on track and our team will help support you in your efforts to encourage healthy habits.
Lifelong Dental Care
Avoid Common Issues
Cavities and periodontal disease are common dental health issues for American adults. Maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping up with brushing and flossing is critical when it comes to maintaining optimal dental health. Six-month visits with Dr. Stuckey are also important for identifying potentially-concerning cases of decay and gum disease. Whether it has been six months or six years since your last dental appointment, call us today to make sure your oral health is on the right track!
