Dr. Chace strives to ensure your children’s mouths stay healthy throughout their lives. The sooner you can bring them in, the healthier their mouths will be. Every child should get a dental checkup by age 1, or as soon as their first tooth comes in, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dental Association.
Dr. Chace understands the benefits of a head start when it comes to your child’s oral health. Gentle Dental Associates understands that your kids need to feel safe and comfortable at the dentist. A friendly atmosphere is essential!
Come into Gentle Dental Associates’ waiting room and the first things you’ll see are toys and TVs to keep your child entertained. Dr. Chace’s warmth and kindness will create an enjoyable, relaxing experience for your child and encourage good dental health as they develop.
Orthodontics may straighten crooked teeth and improve your bite by correcting a misaligned jaw. Orthodontic concerns need to be addressed during childhood or adolescence to achieve the best results. Optimal results may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
In addition to general family dentistry, Dr. Chace offers orthodontic services to correct any problems with your child or teenager’s teeth.
