Dr. Parnaik and the staff of her Medford, NJ dental office are committed to providing high quality dentistry for the whole family. Dr. Parnaik is passionate about providing dental care for the whole family and is experienced with the unique challenges that children face. As a family dentist, we can help children and parents overcome the common pediatric dental concerns and set the course for a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.
Dr. Parnaik generally begins seeing children at age four (4). We do see children younger than 4 years of age by special appointment or for emergency care. To accommodate busy families and working professionals, we offer evening and weekend hours.
Importance of Children’s Dentistry
The oral health of children is extremely important. Establishing a good oral health and preventive care routine creates good habits that will carry into adulthood. Children have special needs and their dental care is unlike adult dental care. A family dentist like Dr. Parnaik is familiar with the needs of children, can make them feel comfortable and identify the early warning signs of common problems.
Our Pediatric Dentistry Services
Our pediatric dental appointments typically include a tooth cleaning and fluoride treatment. We will also take x-rays and other imaging of the teeth so that we can monitor a child’s development and intercept concerns like crooked teeth before they become a problem. Our staff can provide tips and advice for parents on a range of oral health topics from brushing and flossing habits to diet recommendations, pacifier use and thumb sucking.
The dental health of a child today will impact their dental health as an adult. Schedule an appointment online with Medford dentist Dr. Poorva Parnaik or call 609.365.0673.
