Dental Care for Kids in East Hanover, NJ

There is nothing like seeing a smile on a child’s face. At Dental Care East Hanover, we do everything we can to make sure that smile stays with your child for years and years to come. After all, the experiences that children have at the dentist office lay the groundwork for their expectations and feelings towards dental care when they become an adult. That’s why our team at Dental Care East Hanover patiently works with children at a pace that is comfortable for them. We strive to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for children to relieve any stress or fears that they (or their parents!) may have. Our caring staff members help to put your child at ease, knowing that an enjoyable visit to the dentist can shape a positive future of dental health.

At Dental Care East Hanover, we have a dedicated children’s area that is complete with books, toys, and PlayStation video games for young patients to enjoy. Our friendly staff members aim to make every dental experience a positive one and will often include fun prizes during your child’s visit. We also have mounted HDTVs above each dental chair for kids to watch children’s television shows and cartoons during their appointment.

  • At what age should my child start dental visits?

    According to the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child should begin visiting the dentist when his or her first tooth erupts in the mouth. Typically, this means that a child’s first dental visit occurs no later than age one or two.

  • How often should my child visit the dentist?

    Children are recommended to visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and check-up. At Dental Care East Hanover, we provide your child with a complete cleaning and exam. Our team gently removes plaque, which can cause gum infections and bad breath, and ensure that any potential dental problems are detected early.

  • What makes Dental Care East Hanover different?

    We provide a warm, fun, and friendly environment that will help your children relax and feel more receptive to the examinations and treatments.

    We encourage parents and family members to be with their children and interact with them throughout the treatment to further strengthen the kids’ feeling of safety and security.

    Our staff will carefully go through the dental evaluation and the available and recommended treatment options with the parents so that they can arrive at a fully informed decision.

    Teaching children about good dental care habits can help lay down a firm foundation for excellent dental self-care as they grow older and throughout the rest of their life. This is why choosing the right dentist is important.
