As a parent, you may find it challenging to put your child’s oral health in the hands of a dental professional. You understand the importance of a healthy smile, but how is this dentist going to approach your child? Do they know the difference between treating adults and kids? Do they appreciate how special your son or daughter is?

We Know Your Child Is Unique

Yes, we do! Drs. Gladnick and Justison provide kids’ dentistry in Wilmington, DE that we tailor to your child’s specific needs. Our dentists have treated hundreds of children over the years and know what it takes to help your little one feel safe and secure in our caring environment. 

We’ve found that the best way to introduce your child to dentistry is to take a slow and relaxed approach. Rushing them doesn’t serve any purpose and can be counterproductive if a child develops negative feelings. 

We appreciate that each child has different needs. Some see it as a fun adventure from the start; others may need more time to feel safe and secure in an unfamiliar setting. 

We Want Your Child to Enjoy Dental Care

Any relationship with a dental professional requires trust, but it’s crucial for little kids. We take small steps to build your child’s confidence gradually. If we work at your child’s pace, there’s no reason why they should view dental visits as anything other than another positive part of their young lives.

When we do, your son or daughter will start to see that they’re in a safe place surrounded by people they know and trust. Dentistry becomes something they want to do, not something they’re forced to do.

Call to Schedule Your Child’s Dental Appointment

If you have any concerns about the kind of experience your child will have at the dentist, please call us. You may find it helps your child to accompany you or a sibling during your own appointment for a low-key introduction to the dentist’s office. 

We’ve been providing gentle kids dentistry in Wilmington, DE for decades and would love to welcome your son or daughter to our dental family. Please call us at (302) 219-9783 to schedule their first child's dental appointment.
