Pediatric Dentistry/Dentistry for Kids

Pediatric DentistDrs. Heringhaus General Dentistry takes great pride in our children’s dentistry services. From their very first dental appointments to routine care throughout childhood, it’s important to learn how to care for your child’s teeth.

Teeth begin erupting between 6-12 months and will continue until 20 teeth are present around the age of 3. So it’s very important to monitor their development at an early age. As a kid’s dentist in and around Mansfield, Ohio, we feel it’s important to make a child’s visit enjoyable, so we use simple terms to explain the procedures to kids. It is less frightening for them when things have been explained and they know what to expect.

After a child’s visit they are given the opportunity to select a prize from the Prize Room for a small gift, and if they have had a good checkup, they can become a member of the No Cavity Club. They will have their picture taken and be able to hang it on the No Cavity Club board in our waiting room. At month’s end, one child’s picture is selected at random to be that month’s No Cavity Club prize winner and receives a gift certificate from Barnes and Noble.

Whether the child is having their teeth cleaned, sealants placed, fillings done or even having a tooth removed, our hope is to make the process easy for them so they will want to continue to care for their teeth.

Our office in Mansfield makes us convenient to the entire surrounding region in Ohio, including Ashland, Shelby, Crestline, Galion, Ontario and more. Call 419.524.7409 with any questions or to schedule an appointment for any of our pediatric dentistry services today.
