At Columbus Children’s Dentistry, we recognize that every child is unique and we strive to make each child’s appointment special. We understand that you or your child may feel nervous about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs and want to offer the best care possible. It is our goal to make each and every visit fun, educational and above all a positive experience.
We invite you to stay with your child during the first visit and routine recall appointments. For future visits, if restorative treatment is needed, we suggest you allow our staff to accompany your child during the appointment and gain your child’s confidence. However, if you prefer to accompany your child, you certainly may do so.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit no later than their first birthday.
At Columbus Children’s Dentistry we make the first visit, and every visit following, a fun, easy experience for you and your child. From the moment you walk through our doors, you will love the environment that we have created for kids, teens and parents.
Your child’s first visit will include a complete examination of his/her mouth by Dr. Keller. Your child will also have digital X-rays taken of their teeth and receive a dental cleaning and fluoride treatment. After the appointment, Dr. Keller will talk with you to discuss proper home care, as well as answer any questions you may have.
Whether your child’s needs are as simple as an examination and cleaning, as extensive as multiple restorations, or somewhere in between, our goal is to provide you with exceptional care as we navigate your child through their growing years and on to healthy adult teeth.
Some of the services we offer are:
In the event that your child needs to undergo treatment, we have many options available to ensure they are treated safely and comfortably. Dr. Keller also works closely with other local specialists such as orthodontists and oral surgeons when your child needs care not available in our practice.
As with adults, children should visit the dentist every six months, unless otherwise instructed. By taking an active role in your child’s dental health, Dr. Keller and his staff can protect your child from dental disease and put them on the right track for a healthy lifestyle.
