It is not easy for you, as a parent, to tell if your child has an orthodontic problem. The Kid's Dentist has been in practice for 35 years and has a highly trained and certified staff who can provide your child with a thorough evaluation to determine if early orthodontic intervention is necessary.
Your child at age 5 or 6 old could benefit from an orthodontic evaluation. You don’t have to wait until they reach 7 years of age to get their first orthodontic check-up.
Early orthodontic treatment may help in preventing more serious dental issues from developing and may also make your child's treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
