Dr. Tendler is committed to making your child’s dental visit a pleasant and comfortable one. He understands the importance of establishing a good oral hygiene regimen early in a child’s life, and strives to provide your family with the necessary knowledge and treatment to maintain a healthy smile. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children visit the dentist by their first birthday. As a pediatric specialist, (and an experienced daddy) Dr. Tendler is well-acquainted with the limited attention spans of little ones. This first examination allows for early detection and prevention of dental problems and provides valuable information to support good oral care habits at home. If your child requires any dental procedures, the treatment options will be discussed directly with Dr. Tendler at the time of the dental examination.
Many new experiences are challenging for a young child. Fear of the unknown is often expressed by children as crying or physical resistance. Parents should not be embarrassed if their child does not cooperate at their first dental visit. Given the opportunity, children take great pride in overcoming their fears. Most of our patients see their dental visits as a pleasant time. Because each child’s perception of the world around them is unique, an individualized and personalized approach is utilized with each treatment visit. Dr. Tendler offers the latest techniques and dental materials, and is skilled in treating children of all ages.
