Comprometido con la Excelencia
En Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry, hablamos su idioma. ¡El Dra. Ciano habla español nativo, se comunica regularmente con los pacientes y los padres en Español!
Ofrecemos exámenes gratuitos para niños que hayan cumplido su primer año.
Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry sigue las recomendaciones establecidas por la Academia Estadounidense de Pediatría, la Asociación Dental Americana y la Junta Estadounidense de Odontología Pediátrica, que coinciden en que el primer chequeo dental de un niño debe realizarse poco después de la erupción de sus primeros dientes, o no después de 1 año de edad.
Para todos los niños menores de 24 meses de edad, su primer examen de 1 año se proporciona de forma gratuita. La consulta ayudara a su hijo a familiarizarse con nuestra acogedora oficina y permite que nuestro personal lo conozca mejor a usted y a su pequeño.
Una vez que todos se sientan cómodos, puede colocar a su hijo en sus piernas y darle un pequeño abrazo mientras nuestro dentista pediátrico mira rápidamente su sonrisa. ¡Eso es todo! Este breve examen nos permitirá detectar cualquier irregularidad o inquietud, y crear el camino para otras cosas como limpiezas o radiografías en el futuro.
