The team at Smile More Dentistry is happy to announce the opening of Smile More Kidz, an entire floor dedicated to only serving children at our Tappan based practice. This new facility will be tailored just to helping Tappan’s littlest mouths in an environment specifically built for them. What does this mean for you and your children? Today, Dr. Darren Tong, your children’s dentist in Tappan, is going to tell you about all of the great services he and his team can now bring your children.
Specialized Care Just For Them
Children need a different type of dental care than adults. They are still learning to brush their teeth, are growing and changing constantly, and may be a little more sensitive about going to the dentist. A dental office can be a bit intimidating to a small child, which is why Smile More Kidz is specifically tailored to make them feel comfortable as soon as they walk in. Our new facility is designed and decorated to help your child immediately relax, and our staff will make sure they feel looked after whenever they come to visit us.
Our new space also allows us to have facilities built specifically for smaller patients, which will not only make providing care simpler, but also help them physically relax.
What You Get at Smile More Kidz
Dr. Darren Tong is a certified pediatric dentist, which means he has received special training in specifically treating children. This makes him 1 of less than 500 pediatric dentists in the entire New York and New Jersey area.
This knowledge gives Dr. Tong the ability to connect with your children on their level, removing the anxiety from their dental care. He’ll not only be able to provide them with basic services like cleanings and check-ups, but he’ll also be able to use more children-focused treatments such as dental sealants (which is a thin layer of resin that is placed on top of their back teeth to protect them from cavities). Plus, he’ll be able to monitor them as they grow and develop, making sure everything is alright and heading off any potential problems before they can cause real trouble.
Smile More Kidz also presents an environment where you, your child, and Dr. Tong can discuss their oral hygiene habits. Your child’s early visits to their dentist will have a big influence on how they take care of their teeth over time, and Dr. Tong has the experience to help you make sure that your child forms those all-important habits. Sometimes, hearing about how important brushing and flossing is from a dentist is all a child needs for it to click. These positive experiences will make it much easier for them to go to the dentist in the future, which will help ensure their oral health for many years to come.
We’re excited about all of the positive things we’ll be able to bring to Tappan’s children at Smile More Kidz. It allows us to provide a special type of care that we weren’t able to before, and you and your children can now reap the benefits.
