Children Care and Prevention

When do children need to start seeing Dr. Gimer?

We can start seeing your child as early as 6 months. However, it is recommended that your child has their first visit by 2 years of age.  A

 What kind of care do children need?

Children need the same care as adults.

  • Teach your child how to properly rinse and spit after brushing their teeth. Swallowing large amounts of toothpaste can be dangerous. Children need only a pea size amount of toothpaste per brushing session.
  • Dr. Gimer recommends dental appointments for children every 6 months. 

Why is care and prevention important for children?

Teaching your child proper hygiene care early on will set them up for a lifetime of health.

My child can’t or won’t let a dentist get near their mouth. What can Dr. Gimer do?

Bringing your child to the dentist when they are young is the best way to help them feel more comfortable in chair. However, Dr. Gimer is trained to help children feel more at ease.
