Pediatric Dentistry in Rocky Hill

Young woman with beautiful smile outdoors in Rocky HillDr. Michalski, as a father himself, is dedicated to helping your child establish dental habits that will follow them throughout their life for a happy, healthy smile. A child’s first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable. Children are not born with a natural fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. Our Rocky Hill dental office makes a special effort to use pleasant, non-frightening, simple words to describe each treatment. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our office. The more you and your child know about the first visit, the better you will feel.

Why You Should Trust Dr. Michalski with Dental Care

Pediatric dentistry is critical in preventing future dental complications and getting your child started on the path to good oral health. We recommend scheduling your child’s first dental appointment no later than age three, but we see younger children oftentimes earlier with their parents or a sibling where they sit in your lap, ride up and down in the chair and practice opening “big like an alligator!” Early examination and preventive care set your child up for success for the rest of their life, starting with the prevention of childhood caries, or baby bottle tooth decay, which can lead to tooth removal. Your child should visit the dentist every six months for regular dental cleanings and checkups. While not necessary for every child, but depending on your child’s unique habits and home care, we may recommend fluoride treatments with cleanings, or sealants for prevention.
