We would like to introduce our newest addition to the KPD family – Dr. Alina Garciamendez-Rowold.
Bringing your infant, toddler, adolescent, or young adult to the pediatric dentists at KPD is one of the key steps towards maintaining your child’s overall health and giving her/him one more tool to achieve wellness and happiness in life. A Pediatric Dentist is a specialist that promotes the dental and overall oral health of children. The primary objective of Pediatric Dentistry is to ensure your child’s primary teeth, gums, and jaws stay healthy and free of decay and other diseases, to properly evolve and allow for healthy permanent teeth and associated oral environment. As such, a Pediatric Dentist is best qualified in preventing, restoring, and maintaining the unique oral health conditions of children before they achieve adulthood. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a dental visit be scheduled by the time the child reaches 6 months of age.
There is always certain natural anxiety for parents/ guardians and patients regarding this decision. So understanding the process, procedures, the support required and provided, and the overall environment, are key to making everyone at ease and more comfortable. Please explore our website to learn more about our pediatric dentistry practice in Allen, processes, procedures, and people dedicated to supporting you. Our Allen pediatric dentistry staff and I will gladly address any of the questions you may have about your child’s dental treatment.
