At Chetan Parikh, DMD, MDS, DABCDSM, we want the whole family to have good oral health. We start seeing our youngest patients around the age of three to four so that we can help instill in them the oral habits that will keep their teeth healthy and their smile beautiful for life. Dr. Chetan Parikh and our team aim to prevent any unnecessary or avoidable tooth decay, pain, and disease.

Your child’s first appointment will be comfortable and fun. We want them to be able to develop a relationship of trust with our dentist. At your child’s appointment, we will complete a thorough exam to make sure their teeth are in good health. A dental cleaning will also be performed. We will also teach your child the importance of following habits:

  • Brushing at least twice a day
  • Flossing
  • Rinsing
  • Attending check-ups with the dentist

By implementing these practices in their daily lives, your children will establish the foundational oral hygiene habits that help prevent tooth decay and dental disease. We welcome you to contact our office today to learn more about pediatric dentistry in Rockville, Maryland, and to schedule your child’s next appointment. Together, we can help you and all the members of your family obtain optimal oral health.
