Children's Dentist Weslaco, TX
At Smile & Shine we provide dental services for patients of every stage of life. We know how important your children’s oral health is to you, that is why we strive to provide the best children’s dental care possible. Our children's dentists provide comprehensive oral health care to children since they are infants, which include risk assessments for caries in both mother and child. 

According to the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry), children should be seen by a dentist when they reach their first birthday. This is important as it will help determine dental problems at an early age. Nursing or bottle feeding causes concern with tooth decay, especially when children are given these at night. Gum disease is another growing concern as most children do not visit the dentist until age 2 or 3. We help prevent dental problems and help children become confident about their smiles.

Regular teeth cleaning will improve your child's oral health!

Our team provides dental care for children that includes teeth cleaning and fluoride treatments, and nutrition and diet recommendations, as well as management of gum diseases. We also offer services for conditions including ulcers, short frenulae, mucoceles, and we help treat pediatric periodontal diseases

Bringing your children into the office around at a young age helps set up a good foundation for good oral hygiene habits and will help your child become better acclimated with the dental office reducing fears in the future. 

Our children's dentists are always there to help when emergency care for dental injuries arise, such as fractured, displaced, or knocked-out-teeth. We understand that the premature age of our young patients at times makes it difficult for them to fully cooperate with the treatment that is recommended, that is why at Smile & Shine we offer different types of sedations to best suit the needs of our patients.

Our children's dentist will help your child feel comfortable visiting our office!

At Smile & Shine, we understand that children may be having their first visit to the dentist, or are still unsure about going to the dentist. Fear and anxiety may fill their thoughts. Our children's dentist makes sure that your children feel comfortable while they are getting their teeth cleaned. We will explain some of our procedures and explain to children how important it is to brush their teeth regularly.  Contact our office today to begin dental services for your child.
