Good dental health is vital for every member of the family, regardless of their age. At Dental Express, we encourage parents to schedule their child's initial visit to the dentist before they turn one. From there, parents should make certain their children go to the dentist at least two times per year for cleanings and examinations. Our intention is to provide your child with an enjoyable and relaxing visit at our San Diego, CA practice. Hopefully, this will positively reinforce going to the dentist so your child will practice good dental habits their entire life. During their visit, our dentists will assess the growth of their teeth, search for issues or areas of concern, and instruct them on the best way brush and floss at home. To learn more information about pediatric dentistry, contact Dental Express to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists.

Children can experience tooth decay and cavities as early as two years old. At Dental Express, we recommend bringing in your child within six months after their first tooth emerges. Dental Express can provide preventive options and treatments to help preserve their primary (baby) teeth. Your child might have their baby teeth for several years. Therefore, it's important to keep their teeth in good health while your child gets their adult teeth. During the appointments, we’ll check for cavities or any other problems. Our team will show you how to clean your child’s teeth properly and how to watch for other troublesome habits, such as thumb-sucking.
You can help by scheduling visits twice a year for examinations and cleanings. Throughout their visits, our dentists will look for any developing issues, like cavities or dental malocclusion, and also recommend procedures, such as sealants, fluoride treatments, or orthodontics.
What to Expect
Your child's visit will include a dental exam and a cleaning. After the exam and cleaning, our dentists will address any issues with you. In addition, we might suggest a fluoride treatment to strengthen the teeth or recommend applying a sealant to minimize tooth decay and cavities. Finally, by creating a treatment plan, our dentists can fix teeth that have decay or are chipped, damaged, or broken. As your child gets older, our dentists may suggest orthodontics to straighten their bite, which might prevent future dental problems.
If one of our dentists detects an issue during your child's dental cleaning or examination, you may have to schedule a follow-up visit for a procedure. Following the exam, we will speak with you and your child about the most crucial steps in an oral hygiene routine. To help prevent future problems, we will show you the best techniques for brushing and flossing your child's teeth.
In most cases, both dental examinations and cleanings are paid by your dental insurance provider. If a procedure or treatment is necessary, our financial staff will get in touch with your insurer to determine any extra expenses. Dental Express takes many payments, including low-interest financing, that can help make your child's dental care much easier to afford.
