A healthy smile during childhood is the foundation of a positive self-image and has long-lasting benefits. Dr. Oliver strongly believes that kids and teens deserve healthy smiles that they’re proud to show off.
Since we understand that many children experience fear or uneasiness about the dentist, we strive to treat our younger patients with extra sensitivity and care. Our friendly and gentle manner will help your child feel at ease at Cane Bay Family Dentistry, and having a positive dental experience during childhood can contribute to a lifetime of good oral habits. We also work hard to keep dental care for the whole family in your budget, so we accept Medicaid for patients 21 years old and younger. We strive to make your child’s dental visits comfortable, comprehensive, and most of all, fun!
We’ve even added some kid-friendly amenities to make our younger patients feel more at home:
Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that children visit a dentist by age one. Life-long oral health habits like proper brushing and flossing are built at a young age with routine dental visits, We welcome kids of all ages to our family-oriented Summerville, SC dental practice and take great care to make their visits as fun, effective, and educational as possible.
Just as our younger patients have unique needs for communication, they also have their own concerns when it comes to dental treatment. Tooth eruption, bite alignment, and habits such as thumb and finger sucking are important to Dr. Oliver because they can seriously affect the development of a child’s smile. He always addresses these issues with exceptional kindness, patience, and understanding.
Our staff has a great deal of experience with children of all ages, and we look forward to helping your children enjoy visiting the dental office.
