Why should children go to the dentist?

Taking your child to the dentist early and often will help set them up for a lifetime of healthy teeth. The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend taking your child in for their first dental checkup by age 1, or once their first tooth comes in.

Optimal oral health for your children starts with you. To get them started, take your children to see Dr. Timbers. That’s why Smiles of San Jose works hard to ensure that your child feels comfortable and safe in our family-friendly atmosphere.

Come into Smiles of San Jose’s to experience Dr. Timbers’s warm chairside manner that helps your child relax. This creates an enjoyable experience that encourages good dental health as your children grow.

Does my child need to see an orthodontist?

If your child has crooked teeth, a misaligned bite, or jaw deformities, they may require orthodontics to improve their bite. It’s essential to take care of orthodontic concerns during adolescence so your child can avoid dental issues later in life. 

Dr. Timbers provides orthodontic services, too, so you can check that off your list of concerns. Smiles of San Jose has it covered. Dr. Timbers offers office hours into the early evening for added convenience, so your child doesn’t need to miss school for dental or orthodontic appointments.
