Enjoy pediatric dentistry at Richard C. Flores, DDS, LLC
At the practice of Dr. Rich Flores of Willoughby, Ohio, children can obtain the oral care they need. Our dental office is pleased to provide pediatric care for children of all ages and adults of multiple generations. We not only get to know the children but their aunts, uncles, and grandparents who also live in the community. This allows us to get a better perspective of the family dynamics and any potential genetic issues that may lead to more unique and specialized care for any individual child.
When should my child see a pediatric dentist?
At our practice, we strongly recommend that parents bring their children into our office for their first cleaning and evaluation as soon as their first baby tooth erupts. If this has not occurred by their first birthday, we also recommend bringing in your child to ensure there are no problems that may be causing a delay in the formation of the smile.
What services do we offer at our facility?
We help patients of all ages and encourage parents to bring children to the dentist every six months after their first appointment to evaluate their smiles. We educate children and parents on how to care for their teeth and gums and continue building a positive relationship and routine with everyone in the household. Some of the dental services we offer in our practice include:
- Prophylaxis (dental cleanings)
- Periodontal care
- Dental x-rays
- Fluoride applications
- Dental sealants
- Cavity detection
- White fillings
- Composite resin bonding
Whether you are looking for effective dental sealants for kids or treatment of cavities for an older child, our team can assist. We welcome both new and returning patients into our facility and work hard to build a positive relationship with every individual who spends time in our dental chair.
