Welcome to Our Fairfield Pediatric Dentist Office
At our Chew Chew Junction location in Fairfield, Ohio, we strive to provide comprehensive care for children from infancy through adolescence. This includes children with special needs. Dr. Kennedy and his staff don’t expect children to behave like miniature adults. They tailor their approach to match the age and personality of the child being treated.
You are welcome to remain with your child during the appointment if you think that would make him or her more comfortable. We respect children by using language they can understand. We see our role as a partnership with parents to encourage preventative dental care. The most important thing you can do for your child is have a positive attitude toward going to the dentist so they don’t pick up on your anxiety.
We Treat Your Children with State-of-the-Art Technology
At Chew Chew Junction, we work with the most modern equipment available for your child’s preventative and restorative dental care. We use intra-oral cameras to take computerized images of your child’s teeth and gums. This provides us with immediate access to the impressions for treatment purposes.
The philosophy of our dental office remains centered on preventative care. It’s never too early to teach your children proper dental hygiene habits. The dental habits they form today will remain with them throughout their lives.
Make Your Child’s First Dental Appointment by Age One
The average age for the eruption of a baby’s first tooth is six months old. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that parents schedule their child’s first dental appointment within six months of the eruption of the first tooth or by the first birthday.
We know it can be stressful to bring an infant to the doctor or dentist, but Dr. Kennedy and his staff do everything possible to make the experience a pleasant one. We recommend that you schedule the appointment first thing in the morning if possible. A well-rested baby is more likely to be cooperative. We thank you for considering the Fairfield office of Chew Chew Junction for your child’s dental needs.
