At David A. Rice, DDS, We Love Keeping Kids’ Smiles Healthy

Elgin Pediatric Dentistry Your child’s dental health is important to overall health and vitality. At David A. Rice, DDS in Elgin, we love working with you and your whole family to ensure a healthy smile for life.

First Visit Before Age One

Pediatric dental care is essential, and that is why we recommend bringing your child in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During that first visit, we will look down the road just a little bit, and discuss sealants, fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing procedures, and orthodontics.

Children’s Tooth Decay Can Be Prevented

Tooth decay is far too prevalent in young children. But it doesn’t have to be. When parents and pediatric dentists work together, youth can maintain healthy, beautiful teeth.

We can also talk about thumb-sucking, if that’s an issue, as well as pacifier use and other habits that affect dental health. We can help you keep your child’s teeth protected during sporting activities.

David A. Rice DDS in Elgin provides general and family dentistry. We offer a full range of other services, including state-of-the-art dental implants. Schedule an appointment with us today.
