Children’s Dentistry

At the office of Dr. Stephen Morrison, we provide children’s dentistry beginning as young as one year old. We have a passion about helping children and teens get the encouragement and education needed to maintain a lifetime of healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Parents/Grandparents are always welcome to bring children with them to watch while they are getting their teeth cleaned.

hh1Bringing your child in at young age is the best way to instill a positive association with the dentist and put them on the right path to maintaining great oral health. For these reasons, we recommend bringing your child in as soon as their first tooth erupts, or by their first birthday—whichever comes first. This gives your child a chance to begin building a relationship with Linda, our hygienist and Dr. Morrison, and allows them to become an active participant in their own oral health.

During these first appointments, Dr. Morrison will check for any signs of decay or baby bottle caries. Depending on your child’s individual needs, the possibility of fluoride supplements might be discussed. Above all, we provide you and your child with the resources and education needed for you both to become active participants in your child’s oral health. Children are more likely to enjoy the dentist when they are provided a setting that feels safe and fun.
Choosing a dentist for your child may be one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. At the office of Dr. Stephen Morrison, we enjoy seeing the children starting their dental experience at a young age.  Contact our office, and let our team become partners in helping your child maintain optimum oral health for a lifetime of confident smiling!
