Infant & Child DentistryChildren and infant visits are kept short so that your little one doesn't have to sit for too long. Parents are welcome to sit with children in the chair for the evaluation of the jaws, gums, eruption patterns, and homecare.
We may clean your child's teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect against decay. We will review with you how to properly clean your child's teeth and review the drinks and snacking practices that may be lending to early patterns of decay.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry currently takes the position that a child should have a dental exam by age 1. This helps the dental professional better evaluate the home-care and dietary practices that need to be improved to avoid the early patterns of dental decay we are seeing on very young patients.
What to expect during your visit
During the short dental examination visits, Dr. Catherine Baer-Mirza welcomes parents to sit with their child in the chair. Dr. Baer-Mirza will evaluate your child's jaws, gums and eruption patterns after which she may recommend a cleaning for your child's teeth, applying topical fluoride to help protect against decay. Dr. Baer-Mirza will also review home-care techniques with you in regards to properly cleaning your child's teeth to ensure early patterns of decay do not persist.
