Dr. Jolanta Smyda is a general dentist for the entire family who loves treating children.
Our office is committed to providing excellent care for our littlest patients! We offer custom treatment based on your child’s needs. From your child’s first cleaning up through their teenaged years, we prioritize dental health – and ensure that each visit to our office is fun!
We offer a wide range of dental services for children. Whether your child needs a restoration procedure completed or just a simple cleaning, we’ve got it covered. Of course, we believe dental education should start at a young age – the American Dental Association recommends children see a dentist for the first time when they are 1 year old. While most of this education starts at home with routine brushing and flossing, regular dentist visits are important to normalize dental health.
Sedation and Children
Many children are anxious about trips to the dentist’s office, which is why we offer sedation in the form of nitrous oxide. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous is safe to use on children and allows them to have a relaxed, easy experience. The sweet-smelling gas creates a feeling of calm in the patient.
At the end of the appointment, patients receive five minutes of oxygen to clear the effects of the laughing gas, allowing them to continue their day unaffected. This means your child won’t have to miss a full day of school!
