Parents are not just allowed but encouraged to accompany their child during all examinations and procedures.

Your Child's First Dental Visit
Premier Arts Dental is specifically designed for family care, which is why our entire staff goes above and beyond to put children at ease. During your child's first dental visit, we schedule in extra time to ensure that your little one's visit is comfortable and fun!
Kids dentist, Dr. Shah provides a perfect blend of education and play so that a healthy attitude toward oral hygiene is instilled early on.
Checkups and Preventative Care
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) advises that children be seen for a checkup every 6 months. These visits allow Dr. Shah to closely monitor new changes in your child’s mouth and ensure that you, as a parent, have the information you need to promote continued oral health in your child. Our team may suggest additional checkups if your child is more susceptible to cavities or if your child is showing signs of orthodontic problems.
Treatment for cavities in children depends on how severe the decay is as well as each child’s age and risk of future cavities. At Premier Arts Dental, we treat cavities with mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings.
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Dental teeth-strengthening mineral treatments are safe and effective in decreasing the number of cavities in children. Dr. Shah often recommends this treatment along with dental sealants to help protect your child’s teeth. This teeth-strengthening mineral acts as a shield for the tooth’s outer enamel and can actually reverse early dental decay in some children.
Protective Dental Sealants
Protective dental sealants are thin coats of plastic painted onto your child’s back teeth to protect their deep grooves and depressions from accumulating bacteria and food particles.
At Premier Arts Dental, we typically apply a protective sealant to your child’s back teeth, premolars and molars. The sealant will last for several years, but we will continue to check it during your child’s regular dental appointments.
Dental Crowns For Children
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings cemented to a badly damaged tooth to restore the shape and functionality of the tooth. Dr. Shah may recommend a crown for your child’s tooth if it has a large cavity, was broken or chipped due to trauma, or if the tooth hasn’t developed correctly.
Tooth Extractions For Kids
If your child's tooth is suffering from bad decay, or is being crowded by other teeth and cannot erupt, Dr. Shah may recommend a gentle tooth extraction. She will take her time during the simple procedure and give kid-friendly explanations along the way. Your child's extraction should be completely painless!
Special Needs Kids Dentist
Dr. Shah has experience in working with patients who have special needs. Our entire team has the knowledge, patience and expertise to help your child through their entire visit.
