This is a no pressure visit that typically occurs at the age of two, and where your child can remain on your lap. Dr. Ghozati will playfully engage your child while conducting a visual oral exam, assessing the teeth, gums, and jaw.
Prevention and Education – A Family Ritual
Drs. Ghozati and Izadi have an approach that gets kids excited about their smiles. Our young patients love the way our Columbia dentists make learning about nutrition and at-home hygiene routines fun. We provide fluoride treatments and demonstrate how to properly brush teeth to ensure optimal at-home oral health care and reward your child with a special prize for being such a good patient, and having such a great smile.
We are committed to helping your child understand how important their dental health is and the impact an appealing smile will have on their confidence and dental function.
How Else Does Columbia Gateway Dentistry Cater to Kids?
We are a family-friendly dental practice and offer a room designed just for kids; we want children to be excited for their visit with our dentists.
Columbia Gateway Dentistry is a metal free dental practice to ensure that our patients are safe and healthy during procedures and avoiding restorations that may contain mercury.
We utilize pre-formed crowns to treat decayed primary molars for our younger patients. These restorations are made from a soft material and are placed in the cavity, before being hardened to restore the tooth to its original shape.
For children who need it, Dr. Ghozati and Dr. Izadi offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to put anxious young patients at ease.
