Preventive Dental Care – Washington DC

At Beverly pediatric dentistry, we take a preventive approach to dental care for children.

Preventive dental care for children is a collaborative effort between the pediatric dentist, the child, and his or her parents. Along with cleanings and other preventive treatments, proper home care and a balanced diet are also important for promoting and maintaining oral health.

Preventive dental care begins with your child’s first visit to one of our office in Mclean VA or Washington DC, our goal is to build a foundation for our young patients to believe he/she deserves a beautiful smile. We are not in the business of simply fixing teeth but aiming to make every visit to our office a unique and memorable experience. We want you and your child to believe that what he or she feels matters to us!

We believe that we have to listen eagerly to every question and concern that your child has because our main goal is building confidence in your child about the importance of dental care so they can trust their dentists as an adult for major treatments.
