Early Positive Dental Experiences
At LightHouse Dental Chatham, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a wide range of dental services for Chatham kids and their developing smiles and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We realize that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience, so we strive to keep the environment calm, friendly and inviting. We will work at your child's pace, take breaks if needed, and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should be seen by a dentist after the first six months of age or at minimum, by the child's first birthday. By this time, baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are beginning to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any problems before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
Services at LightHouse Dental Chatham can be tailored to your child's oral health needs, keeping their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each appointment, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques to ensure your child's smile is getting the proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings and mouth guards.
