Pediatric Dentistry
we LOVE to see kids!

Family Tree Dentistry is a Kid Friendly dental practice located in the North Shore of Milwaukee

At Family Tree Dentistry, we LOVE to see kids. The American Dental Association recommends seeing children as young as 1 year old. This visit is usually short, and acts as an introduction for both the child and parent.

The following tips can make a child’s first trip (and every trip for that matter) to the dentist enjoyable, positive and successful: Inform your child of the visit and explain that the dentist and staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions.

Dental Exams and Cleanings
Discuss the positive aspects of dentistry with your child

One way to convey good feelings about dental visits is to remind your child that going to the dentist is a sign they are growing up. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.

It is best that you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as needle, pull, drill, or hurt. The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child. Please do not tell your child that the “dentist will not hurt you” as this may never have entered his/her mind. Instead, you may wish to assure your child that the dentist and his helpers will be gentle and friendly.

Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride varnish is a dental treatment that can help prevent tooth decay, slow it down, or stop it from getting worse

Commonly, done on children and adolescents, but when necessary can be used on adults. Fluoride varnish is a dental treatment that can help prevent tooth decay, slow it down, or stop it from getting worse. Fluoride varnish is made with fluoride, a mineral that can strengthen tooth enamel (outer coating on teeth).

Keep in mind that fluoride varnish treatments cannot completely prevent cavities. Fluoride varnish treatments can best help prevent decay when the patient is also brushing using the right amount of toothpaste with fluoride, flossing regularly, getting regular dental care, and eating a healthy diet.

Space Maintenance Evaluation
At each visit, Dr. Mike will do a space maintenance evaluation

At each visit, Dr. Mike will do a space maintenance evaluation. We will discuss jaw shape and size, along with tooth size, shape and positioning. Typical, a referral will be given when the child is deemed ready or needing a consultation with an area orthodontist.
