Great dental experiences start at an early age!

In fact, many patients who suffer from dental fear or anxiety report that it was due to a bad or frightening experience as a child. At Tysons Dentistry, our doctors understand and welcome the unique personalities of children, starting around the age of two, and we strive to make every visit to our office positive and upbeat to help create great future dental appointments.

Here are some qualities to look for when choosing your provider for kid's dentistry in Tysons Corner:

Dentistry Early On

Getting your child acclimated to the dental office at an early age is critical for building a foundation of trust for future visits. Your dental provider must understand this and be willing to see your child early on.

It's also important to begin monitoring your child's oral development so you can be proactive about any issues that may arise.

Additional Services for Children

Does your dentist offer additional services for children to help their developing smiles? Fluoride treatments help build and strengthen small teeth while dental sealants protect your child's teeth from cavities. If your child participates in sports, can your dentist craft them customized protective wear?

These types of services become important as your child gets older.

A Welcoming Environment

The dental office you choose for your child should feel friendly, welcoming, and inviting. Does the staff take the time to communicate with your child about their treatment so your child feels comfortable? These are the small details that can make the difference between your child feeling scared or excited about their dental appointments.

Dr. Shahram and Dr. Sanati have been providing friendly and high-quality dental care to children for many years. As parents themselves, they understand the importance of these visits and strive to make them the best experience possible for your child.
