Dr. Lemire and her staff love treating children, and it shows! When it comes to visiting the dentist, kids need a dentist and staff willing to take a little extra time and help them have fun and not be afraid or apprehensive. If you need a the best children's dentistry Coos Bay has to offer or pediatric dentist in Coos Bay or North Bend, we are your choice!
We are an office full of “moms” so we know what we would want for our children and go out of our way to give your child that same attention and care.
Unlike many offices, we encourage parents to be in the treatment rooms while your child is being cared for. This allows us the opportunity of communicating with you and your child together regarding their dental health.
Our goal is to make every visit to the dentist a wonderful and positive experience for you and your child!
Children Ages 0-3
We are often asked when a child should first visit the dentist. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child visit the dentist by their 1st birthday. Although this might seem young, it is extremely important that newly erupted primary teeth receive proper dental care from the beginning. Initial appointments are primarily used to help parents learn how to clean and care for their child’s teeth.
In our experience, most parents bring their children in at about the age of two. Many times the first visit will just be a “chair ride” just to begin familiarizing your child our friendly and easy-going atmosphere. If your child is receptive to having an exam, we will do it on that day. If not, we will set up another appointment and another until your child is comfortable with us and will allow us to examine them.
Introducing children gently to dentistry will set the foundation for a lifetime of positive dental experiences. Always know we are always available to answer any questions you may have about your child’s oral health.
Children Ages 3 and Up
At the age 3, or earlier if your child is able and willing, we will begin regular cleaning, exams and fluoride treatments. We usually start including x-rays as part of our exam at around the age of five.
