Children’s Dentistry

The transition from infant care to children’s dentistry is  important at Penn’s Commons Dental Group because our staff realizes some young children may have anxiety.  Depending on the maturity of the child,  a Teddy Bear Visit may be recommended around the age of 3.  In short, this service is a fun, comfortable introduction to the office by one of our dental hygienists.

At the child’s first cleaning visit,  individual needs are determined, including reviewing brushing/ flossing and possibly taking x-rays.  Making the first time meeting  the dentist a fun appointment makes going to the dentist a lot easier.  Remember, this is an important time for the development of children’s teeth and  future dental health.

Overall, if  further treatment is needed and the child is anxious, nitrous oxide can be used for comfort.

Our staff always looks forward to getting to know our newest patients!

Penn’s Commons Dental Group has provided the Reading/Berks area with children’s dentistry and other general dental services for over 35 years.
