Our pediatric services are designed to take care of the oral health of children from infancy through teenage years, and we have created a very friendly and comfortable environment for kids of all ages.
Our preventive measures are specialized for the young members of your family. Teaching them how to brush, how to floss, and educating them on the importance of teeth and gums healthy is our goal. We like to start off at an early stage so our young patients can live healthier lives with brighter smiles.
If you notice any problems with your child’s teeth or gums, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Yu. We provide oral health education to patients and can recommend specialty products such as fluoride supplements or dental sealants if we feel your child needs them.
We can also demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques so your child develops good oral hygiene habits.

Benefits of Pediatric Dentistry
Introducing your child to good oral hygiene practices can help them maintain optimal oral health throughout life. It is very important for children to be comfortable visiting the dentist’s office at a young age, and to learn how to brush and floss their teeth properly. Some of the top benefits of pediatric dentistry include the following:
- A child-friendly environment reduces fear and anxiety associated with dental visits.
- Child-focused care prevents cavities and tooth decay well into adulthood.
- Early dental care encourages healthy gum tissue and bone growth.
- Monitoring teeth as they erupt reduces the risk of developing misaligned teeth.
- Braces and other teeth straightening treatments are available.
