Children Dental Care

We are happy to welcome the youngest members of your family to our office. We see patients of all ages, even younger than 6 months! We believe in creating a fun and inviting atmosphere for children to learn about their teeth and how to care for them. We are focused on providing kids with the tools they need to have great oral health!

From cleanings, to fillings, appliances and braces, we offer most treatments right at our office. In addition, we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation for children who may be nervous at the dentist.

Start Them Young!

Brushing and flossing at a young age has a major impact on a child’s dental health.  At Dr. Van Berkel & Associates there is a strong emphasis on prevention of cavities and dental disease.

  • Checkups and cleanings are recommended every 6 months for children so that any concerns can be caught and managed early.
  • Preventive treatment like sealants can reduce the chances a child will get cavities.

Early Orthodontic Intervention

We can provide a full range of preventive appliances such as headgear, cross bite appliances, palatal expanders, and space maintainers that can reduce the amount of time your child spends in braces! Minor alignment issues can sometimes be managed with appliances alone. Often times these treatments are most effective before the age of 12.

Managing Dental Anxiety

If your child is anxious about dental treatment we can provide nitrous oxide or oral sedation to help manage your child’s needs.  The costs of these modes of light sedation can be much more manageable than general anesthesia.
