Why a Teen practice?
To put it simple – teenagers are not kids anymore, and don’t want to be treated like kids. However, their dental needs are still quite different than those of their parents. It’s My Smile was created to address the specific oral hygiene and social needs of teenagers, bridging the gap between a pediatric and a general dentists office. With so many of our patients (and our own children) growing up we felt like we really needed to address the needs of our teenagers. Experience and research has shown that to achieve the best oral hygiene possible it is essential for teenagers to be in an environment they feel comfortable, a place to call their own, thus It’s My Smile was born.
The Changing Needs
As children become teenagers, their attitude towards dental care changes. Appearance and self-image are important. Cavities are no longer the primary concern. Tooth decay, gum disease, wisdom teeth and possibly orthodontics and teeth whitening are often additional concerns. How these needs are addressed as physiological and social changes occur in their lives is very important as well. Dr. Davis and his staff look forward to treating your teenager and helping him/her feel comfortable and at ease during these transition years.
Dentistry for Kids has built a reputation over the last 15 years of providing the highest quality of care and the best possible dental experience for children. That mission remains the same for teenagers at It’s My Smile. It is not just our mission but our promise to you, the best care and the best experience, whatever the age.
