About Pediatric Dentistry
A gorgeous, healthy smile is important at all ages. The experienced team at MINT dentistry wants to provide your child a comfortable dental experience at our office in Grapevine, TX, so they will develop a good impression with the dentist that lasts the rest of their life. You should schedule your child’s visits to our office two times every year for professional cleanings and pediatric dental exams. At their appointment, a board-certified dentist will examine the development of your child’s teeth, check for problems, and educate your child on the best way to take care of their teeth. Consumers Choice has named MINT dentistry as "Best Family Dentist" two years in a row. As soon as you arrive with your child, our front staff will hand them a tablet already loaded with fun, age-appropriate games to keep them busy. Start your child off with a great smile by making an appointment at our office in Grapevine, TX.
Children can have cavities and tooth decay as young as 24 months of age. MINT dentistry recommends scheduling your child's first visit when they are around 18 months old, so a board-certified MINT dentist can make sure there are no overbite problems or structural issues. Children usually keep their primary teeth for several years, so it's a good idea to make sure they remain in good health until their permanent teeth have grown in. This means visiting our office twice a year for exams and cleanings.
What to Expect
Before our team of talented dental professionals begins your child’s dental exam, we will make sure they feel safe and comfortable. Our team will talk to your child and explain what is happening so they are part of the process. Your child will be given a pair of MINT sunglasses and asked to relax in one of our super comfy treatment chairs. A MINT dentistry team member will first perform a basic examination of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw before performing a cleaning. Proactive treatments like sealants or fluoride might be suggested to protect your child's developing teeth. Should our team identify a concern, a customized treatment plan will be created with your child’s utmost care and comfort in mind. MINT dentistry is dedicated to using advanced dental technology and modern techniques to make sure your family's dental treatments are effective but also fast and comfortable.
If one of our dental professionals detects a problem during your child’s dental exam, we will ask you to schedule an appointment for a follow-up procedure. Our MINT team of dentists is experienced at providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care. If your child requires an orthodontic treatment, a filling for a cavity, or care after a dental injury, our office is ready to help. For optimal oral health, our team of board-certified MINT dentists recommends you schedule dental cleanings in six-month intervals and dental exams once a year for every member of your family. Aftercare following a regularly scheduled dental exam or cleaning includes a dedicated at-home oral health regimen, as instructed by the MINT dentistry team.
The MINT Commitment
Cleanings twice a year along with an annual pediatric dental exam are usually covered by your dental insurance provider. For any procedures or recommended treatments, our MINT support staff will contact your provider to calculate any additional costs. If you do not have dental insurance, we accept several payment options to help make your child's dental care easier to afford. MINT dentistry feels that a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth are priceless, so we're dedicated to helping you afford both. Speak with a member of our MINT dentistry team for more information on our affordable dentistry plans.
