Pediatric dentistry tips from trusted dentists in Marietta, GA

To a parent, there’s nothing more heartwarming than seeing your child smile. At a young age, the appearance of your child’s smile is often more about the way it lights up the room and less about perfect alignment and whiteness. However, keeping your child’s mouth healthy is a critical job for parents.

Parents often wonder if they need a specialized pediatric dentistry practice or if they’re better served with a family dentist they already know and trust. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental in Marietta, GA, have been working with adults and their children for many years. Because they get to know their patients, they develop a comfortable and trusted relationship with the entire family. Here, Dr. Vo and Breckley offer tips for keeping your child’s dental health in top shape:
  • Start young. Even before the first tooth breaks through the gums, parents should be thinking about dental health. The 32 Dental team recommends that parents wipe the gums with a soft cloth after a bottle or feeding, even before the child cuts his first tooth. Once a tooth erupts, parents can use a soft brush to remove food particles and bacteria.
  • Make brushing fun. Dr. Vo and Breckley recommend using a fun timer or singing a song so children learn that brushing shouldn’t be a fast activity. Let them pick out the toothbrush or paste at the store. Also, be sure to be a good example and let your child see you brushing and flossing your teeth.
  • Stay involved. It can be challenging for most kids to reach the back teeth or brush their teeth as completely as is necessary. Therefore, it’s important that a parent oversee the process. As the child gets older you can let him or her try it first, but then be sure to check the work and repeat it if necessary.
  • Regular checkups are important. Visiting the dentist is as important for children as it is for adults. Not only does it provide an opportunity for the dentist to examine your child’s teeth, it also allows your child to begin to feel more relaxed in the dentist’s office.
  • Think about nutrition. Parents know that foods high in sugar aren’t good for their child’s health, but they may not realize that it can also damage the teeth. Furthermore, many foods that seem like good options are packed full of sugar. Consider water rather than fruit juice and crunchy vegetables instead of candy bars or lollipops.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
