Pediatric Dentistry

Great smile right from the start with Harrisburg Smiles

Harrisburg Smiles is 100% committed to helping you and your family maintain healthy dental habits. From your child’s first appointment, we emphasize the importance of basic dental hygiene, and make learning proper techniques fun. We also know that the best teacher is a child’s parent. So we make sure you leave every appointment with the same tips – you might even learn something new!

No Fear Dentistry

We like to see brave faces when we provide pediatric care. And the best way to achieve that is to introduce your child to the dentist at a young age. Forming relationships with health care providers early on is the best way to keep your kid anxiety-free during treatment. Choosing the right dentist from the start allows your child to grow with the same doctor, and ensures that their dental history is top of mind during every appointment. Consistency is key, and Harrisburg Smiles provides that to each of our littlest patients.

Got questions? We’ve got answers!

All new parents could use a little help when it comes to their young ones. Here are a few frequently asked questions and answers to help you get on the right track.

Once their first primary tooth erupts. This is usually around 6 months old, but your child should also see a dentist before their 1st birthday.

We recommend bringing children in for dental appointments every 6 months for routine cleanings and evaluations.

As soon as a child’s teeth come in (around 1-2 years), you should begin brushing with toothpaste once every day. Just make sure they aren’t swallowing the toothpaste after brushing.

Children over the age of three should be able to brush their teeth on their own with a small amount of toothpaste. You should supervise their brushing to ensure they’re using proper brushing techniques.
