What makes Stanley Dentistry different? It’s simple: continuity of care. Through every stage of your child’s life, our dentists can take care of all of their dental needs, from their first tooth to their final braces appointment.
From Childhood to Adulthood
Because our dentists see their patients throughout the year, they can find, diagnose, and treat problems much faster than dentists who specialize in only one particular area. Whatever dental services your child needs as he or she grows, we’ll be able to handle them.
This means your child won’t have to go through the stress of visiting an orthodontist, an oral surgeon, and a family dentist as they mature. At Stanley Dentistry, Dr. Robert and Dr. Bobbi Stanley have extensive training and experience in every realm of pediatric dentistry (plus they have four kids of their own!)
The Importance of Pediatric Dental Care
To say that childhood is an important time for dental health would be a huge understatement. This is the only time in your life when your teeth are naturally changing and moving. Regular dentist visits aren’t just preferred for children — they’re a must. Children over the age of six months need to go to the dentist so they can learn good dental practices and get the proper appliances they need to have beautiful, healthy smiles later in life.
Unfortunately, a lot of adults come into the office with dental problems that originally started in childhood. Because children’s mouths are still growing and forming, regular visits to the dentist can mean catching something serious before it becomes serious.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, parents should bring their children to the dentist for the first time by the time they are one year old or when their first tooth comes in (whichever is first). A lot of parents worry about bringing their baby to the dentist because they feel like their child can’t behave well enough. Dr. Minka and Dr. Bobbi both have kids of their own — they know how little ones can be! Our team will do everything we can to make sure you and your child’s experience at Stanley Dentistry is as stress-free as possible.
We offer an array of pediatric-focused services at Stanley Dentistry including:
