Children’s Dental Care in Columbia, SC
Most people are particular about their dental care and are even more so when it comes to their child’s. We understand that parents seek the highest level of care for their family, and we’re committed to delivering that. We tend to our smaller patients with a gentle, effective approach. Equally as important, we keep you in the loop so you can help implement a good dental hygiene routine at home as well.
While we hope your child is ready and willing to visit the dentist every six months, we understand that sometimes that just isn’t the reality. If your little one struggles with dental anxiety, we also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help them sit back and relax throughout their treatment. This sedation option is administered in the form of a liquid that they drink approximately 10-15 minutes prior to their appointment. It’s pain-free and wears off shortly after the visit. If sitting still in the dental chair is the problem, we also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to easily relax them throughout their treatment. To reverse the effects of nitrous oxide, they will simply have to breathe oxygen for a few minutes after the soft mask is removed. Dr. Dailey has completed intensive training in Pediatric Sedation Dentistry through the DOCS Education organization and will treat your child with the utmost precision and patience.
Entertaining children at the dentist can be a bit of a challenge. We’re always looking for ways to make your little one’s time with us more enjoyable. Our office has a kids’ play area complete with books, toys, and a treasure tower of prizes. We’ll teach your kiddos that visiting the dentist is fun!
As much as we love educating our patients about their dental hygiene, we’re even more excited to reward them for maintaining a healthy smile. Our office has implemented a Cavity-Free Club where we give special recognition to those kiddos who show up to the office without any cavities. If they’re not quite there yet, we’ll provide them with all of the tips and tricks to get there next time.
