Pediatric Dentistry in San Luis Obispo, California

Your child’s baby teeth can come in as early as six months of age. For this reason, it’s best to get started finding a good dentist as soon as possible. You may think that as long as you and your child are practicing a dental hygiene regimen, your child’s mouth will be fine. However, every child needs expert care to achieve excellent oral health.

Early childhood caries, for instance, is a fairly common disease that can afflict children under the age of six, according to ADA.org. Thankfully, a skilled dentist can the early signs and make sure your child's smile remains healthy. Our dentists will also be able to help your child develop good brushing and flossing habits to keep their smiles healthy.

When Should I Take My Child to the Dentist?

Start looking for a good dentist as soon as possible. Developing a quality relationship with your child’s dentist is important to get a head start on. At least find one by the time your child is one year old, as their baby teeth will come in.

What Qualifies a Dentist to Work with Children?

Family dentists are specially qualified to work with children because they have the training and patience needed to work with patients of all ages. Our team will treat your child with a gentle touch and help them feel comfortable during every step of their procedure.

What Happens During the First Visit?

First off, don’t forget to show up a little early to fill out new patient forms. Make sure to bring any special forms of identification if requested.

In the first visit, your dentist will introduce themselves and begin gaining rapport with your child. Many children are hesitant to interact with a strange adult, so this process will not be rushed.

Lastly, you and your dentist will agree upon how often to have checkups. Most dentists will want to check in with your child about every six months. This will help build trust between the child and the dentist as well as allow for early problems to be caught and prevented or treated.

This is actually a well-established office of Doctors Solomon and Hollister. Doctor Solomon is my elderly mother's dentist/oral surgeon, and she is extremely pleased with the care she's received here...and there's a fine old magnolia tree just outside the door!
