Pediatric Dental Care
It is important to instill healthy oral habits in children from a young age. Regular dental checkups and education lay the foundation for lifelong oral health. By detecting issues early on, our Plantation pediatric dentists can perform preventative treatments that could help younger patients avoid costly or painful issues down the road. Regular dental exams, teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments, brushing, flossing, and imaging can help maintain a healthy smile!
Our kids dental specialists are skilled, compassionate, and excited about helping children in Broward County have a positive experience. Don’t settle when it comes to the oral health of your little ones! Parents keep coming back to Smile Every Day for our fun atmosphere and attention to detail.

Your Child’s First Visit
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Dental Association (ADA), and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommend scheduling an exam at the first eruption of baby teeth. The goal of this visit is to determine a primary provider and ongoing oral health plan. Once we establish a primary doctor and appointment schedule for your little one, you’ll know when and where to take them. To speed up the first appointment, you can download and complete our intake form prior to arriving.
We invite you to stay with your child throughout every step. Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your appointment to complete any necessary paperwork and give your child some time to adjust to the office. We will gather the necessary information to develop a preventative program unique to your child. We will discuss appropriate home care such as brushing, flossing, diet, and fluoride treatments. Dr. Mo and Dr. Steve will perform a thorough dental exam for each child, determine their dental caries risk, check for any tooth decay, examine their occlusion (bite), evaluate for any dental growth or developmental concerns, and discuss any oral habits such as the thumb-sucking or pacifier use.
Dr. Mo and Dr. Steve will recommend dental x-rays only if necessary. We will determine, during the first visit, if your child is ready for a dental cleaning and fluoride treatment. This typically depends on your child’s age and level of anxiety. For infants and toddlers we typically perform a “knee-to-knee” exam. For this exam, a child sits on your lap and leans back onto a soft pillow resting on the doctor’s knees to complete the examination. This allows parent participation for the exam and added comfort for your child. If Doctors Mo and Steve determine your child needs dental treatment, they will discuss all the options offered in our office and help you make the best choice for your child.
We invite you to stay with your child during the initial examination and each visit after. This gives you the opportunity to see our team in action and allows the doctors to discuss dental findings and treatment needs directly with you. Our purpose is to gain your child’s confidence along with your trust.
Don’t be discouraged if your child cries on the first visit. Crying is a normal reaction for some children when faced with a new situation. It is important to make them feel reassured and positive about their dental experience. The more positive we make the visit, the more they will want to come back! If you get home and realize there was something you forgot, don’t hesitate to call our office. We realize the first appointment can be overwhelming and want to answer all of your questions.
