Your child’s first visit to our office should occur around the time of their first birthday. Although this might seem too young to you, it is very important to begin instituting preventive measures before dental problems have begun. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to examine two- year- old patients with many decayed teeth.
The first visit allows you and your child to begin to develop a positive rapport with Dr. Nezon and his experienced staff. This visit is an educational experience for the parents. We will tell and show you how to properly care for your child’s teeth to prevent dental problems as they get older.
Your child’s tooth and jaw development will be assessed. All your questions regarding your child’s oral health will be answered. Our goal is to empower you to make proper decisions regarding your child’s diet and oral hygiene to maintain healthy cavity free teeth for your child.
My goal is to provide dental care for your child, from infancy to adulthood, in a caring, positive and
non-threatening environment. My focus is to prevent dental disease by practising advanced preventative dental techniques. The latest preventative, restorative and orthodontic procedures are practised in my office from the eruption of your child's first tooth until adulthood. -Dr. Errol Nezon
Why Choose a Paediatric Dentist?
A Paediatric Dentist, like Dr. Nezon, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised.
A paediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education.
We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Our office provides all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
