If you're looking for Atascadero pediatric dentists, look no further!
As a dentist who specializes in children in and around Atascadero, I attend continuing education classes several times throughout the year. I am particularly concerned in recent years about the amount of tooth decay I am seeing in first time patients. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports “the U.S. is experiencing the first increase in 40 years in the number of preschooler’s who have cavities”. After decades of declining numbers, the trend is reversing. My worry is that many families are postponing bringing their children in to get checked until a later age, which can lead to more tooth decay.
I am also very concerned about how the economic crisis in our county is affecting how local families approach to their health/dental care needs. Tooth decay leads to many other health related issues in children, including more expensive and more invasive treatment that can continue on into adulthood.
In an effort to provide the best pediatric dentistry services in Atascadero, we've created a practice that focuses entirely on kids' oral health from early on in their lives. It's always much easier to begin with preventative care than to try to undo years of problems. Read Our Vision statement to find out more!
