Prevention is the key to a healthy and beautiful smile, especially for children. At Oahu Pediatric Dentistry, we specialize in several preventive services to help your child maintain excellent oral health.
Preventive dentistry is a form of dental care that concerns itself with educating our clients on how to maintain their teeth and gums. It also involves regular check-ups to ensure everything remains in order.

Baby Teeth Matter
The American Dental Association (ADA) states that a child should receive a professional evaluation by their first birthday, or by the time their first tooth erupts. Proper infant dental care can prevent early instances of tooth decay and gum disease. It also helps us catch and correct development issues before they cause major problems for their permanent teeth.
