Age shouldn’t deter you from visiting your family dentist. Children as young as one and seniors as old as 102 should consistently attend general checkups and cleanings to ensure optimum oral health. Dr. Stewart and our team believe in building lasting relationships with our patients, educating them on oral health, and providing comprehensive care that will assist them in maintaining oral health longevity. Your family dentist in Livonia, MI, Dr. Stewart, encourages you to schedule an appointment for yourself or a loved one.
Our team believes treating young patients is an opportunity to establish oral health habits that will last a lifetime. As we build a relationship with you and your child, we will educate the both of you on proper brushing and flossing techniques. We will also share the importance of fluoride rinses, and when it is safe for your child to use fluoride.
Dr. Stewart places an importance on creating a happy and comfortable atmosphere for children. He also supports the American Dental Association’s recommendation for children to visit the dentist by age one. If you call ahead and notify our team that you will be bringing in your little one, we will set aside time to take a peak inside their mouth.
Also, the doctor recommends that once your child’s teeth begin to erupt six month dental checkups should commence. These checkups consist of the child taking a ride in the dental chair and having their teeth examined. If any oral health concerns arise, Dr. Stewart will discuss with you the proper treatment.
