Our team can help your child have a healthy smile for life!
We provide pediatric dentistry in Herndon, Virginia, to help keep your child’s smile healthy. Their baby teeth do fall out eventually, but they play an important role in the development and positioning of their adult smile. See the pages below to learn more about the pediatric services offered at our practice:
Just as we recommend for adults, your child should also visit our dentists every six months for a cleaning and exam. Not only does this keep your child’s mouth and gums healthy, but it also keeps you informed on the condition of their oral health. If they have any concerning or potentially harmful dental conditions, a regular visit to GoSmiles Dentistry will allow our team to detect and treat it in a timely manner.
With our years of experience and level of expertise in the dental field, our professionals are certain to give your child the wonderful care you want for them. We are patient, gentle and never forceful with children, and we encourage parents to be there during all stages of their appointment. This helps everyone involved feel more comfortable with their visit.
If you have questions about our pediatric dental services or want to speak to our specialists for any reason, please reach out today at 703-689-3900.
