Parkview Dentistry is a cosmetic and family dental office. In other words, Dr. Laskis is also a children’s dentist.
Family dentistry allows the whole family to be treated by one dentist. The family dentist serves the same function as a general dentist. However, children who are brought into the family dentist for regular check-ups and to watch while other family members are treated are freer to form a warm relationship with members of the dental team.
From as early as one year old, Dr. Laskis can see children to diagnose their oral health and their newly erupting teeth. Importantly, even though kids lose their ‘baby teeth’, if decay invades those teeth it can spread to the permanent teeth before they have even erupted.
For these kids, teaching them to brush properly, to floss regularly and to eat healthy meals can help prevent the need for more serious treatment in the future. Older members of the family can build healthy habits, schedule regular teeth cleaning as well a check-ups to detect any problems with tooth decay or gum disease.
Children have very different dental needs than adults. Moreover, not every dentist is capable of working with children who can be easily discouraged by the medical surroundings. All of the staff of Parkview Dentistry are trained to work with children.Back To: General and Family Care
