Frequently Asked Questions
We get a lot of questions but here are some of the more common ones. We always take the time to sit down with our patients and review any questions or concerns they may have.
What should I clean my baby’s teeth with?
A small, soft bristled toothbrush is best. Brush your infant’s teeth once before bedtime to get started on great oral hygiene.
When should I take my child in for their first checkup?
A first birthday is a perfect time for a first dentist visit. Dr. Payam will check for any early signs of decay and review with you good dental practices you can follow with your child.
What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a family dentist?
Pediatric dentists go to 2 or 3 years of additional schooling to specialize in children’s teeth. They are limited to practicing on children, infants through adolescents and they are experts in their field.
How often should I take my child to the dentist?
You should schedule a checkup every 6 months. This ensures any problems are caught early on. Dr. Payam will advise you if you need to come more or less often based on your personal situation.
