Our Washington, DC dentists are proud to treat all ages with quality dental care, from children to seniors! At Premier Dental Care, Dr. Hines and his skilled team operate with the understanding that each age group requires a different approach as their oral health needs change with time.
When providing children's dental care, comfort is our top priority. Keeping our littlest patients relaxed ensures a more enjoyable experience from the start! To maximize comfort, each exam room features soft chairs and built-in televisions offering streaming services so kids can enjoy their favorite shows and movies in the dentist's chair.
Our top kids' dentistry services include the following:
Your Child's First Dental Visit
Premier Dental Care is glad to welcome children for their first dental appointment! During your child's visit, Dr. Hines and his team will always operate on the child's schedule — meaning we'll work as slowly as needed to ensure their experience is a pleasant, comfortable one! Our team focuses on quality prevention, keeping cavities at bay while strengthening the teeth and promoting long-lasting oral health.
Our team will take a set of digital x-rays and images to gain a full perspective of your child's oral health. We provide dental care education in a way that's easy to understand, empowering kids to prioritize their healthy teeth and gums between visits.
Checkups and Preventive Care
Our practice follows the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, advising children to be seen for checkups at least every 6 months. If Dr. Hines detects cavities or early orthodontic concerns, we may suggest more frequent visits.
In the instance of a small cavity, our team will provide treatment using safe, naturally tooth-colored dental fillings that are always mercury-free!
Dental Crowns For Children
Dental crowns can help save a tooth from decay or oral injury. Premier Dental Care crafts quality crowns from a variety of materials, using only the most advanced dental tools and technologies.
Tooth Extractions For Kids
If your child is suffering from crowded teeth or decay, our team will work to preserve their oral health with a gentle tooth extraction. Tooth extractions can help ensure the child's total body health as they grow!
Our team also provides preventive wisdom tooth extractions for teens. If your teenager is experiencing pain at the back of their mouth, give us a call to schedule a consultation.
