Pediatric dentistry is a specialized field that is geared toward the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence. It plays a vital role in ensuring that your child maintains a healthy and beautiful smile as they grow. From their first tooth to the teenage years, Dr. Roger Richter is trained to provide comprehensive care tailored to the unique needs of young patients.
Pediatric dentistry is essential from the moment your child’s first tooth erupts, typically around six months of age, during which we encourage you to bring them in for their first screening. Regular check-ups with our dentist are crucial to monitor tooth development, assess oral hygiene and detect potential issues early. These visits create a foundation for a lifetime of good oral health and can address concerns like teething discomfort, thumb-sucking habits and early signs of cavities.
