Children’s Dental Services In Plano
It is important to establish healthy oral hygiene habits in your child at a young age. At Willow Bend Dental in Plano, our children’s dentist will work one-on-one with your child to teach proper brushing techniques, the importance of brushing at least twice per day, and why avoiding sweet and sugary foods are harmful for teeth.

Our Plano, TX dentist and the professionals at Willow Bend Dental believe that proper dental hygiene promotes the healthy growth and development of your children, and we are committed to providing the highest level of pediatric care for your child in the safest, most fun, and gentlest manner possible.

The First Dental Appointment
A child’s first visit to the dentist can be an overwhelming experience if they are not prepared for what happens during the appointment. Before arriving at our Plano, TX dental office, we advise parents to first explain who the dentist is and why going to the dentist is important. It may also be helpful to review pictures of a typical dentist’s office and watch a fun video that explains what happens at the dentist. In general, you can help your child feel more confident about their first visit by demonstrating a positive attitude toward dental care, regardless of your past experiences.
If your child is ready for his or her’s first visit to the dentist, or you are looking for a new dentist for your child, contact Willow Bend Dental today. We would be happy to help your child establish healthy dental habits.
