Children & Infant Dental Care

Choosing the right dentist for your children is an important decision. We’re ready to give you and your family the quality dental care you deserve.

Proper dental care for your children begins even before a baby’s first tooth appears. Even though you can’t see the teeth, they are already developing in the jaw. The baby’s teeth start developing at the second trimester of pregnancy and keeping the teeth and gums healthy from that early age is important for your child’s dental health.

Doctor Harman and Doctor Hawley’s Emporia dental office welcomes patients of all ages. The American Dental Association recommends that children have their first dental visit by their first birthday. We understand that all kids are different and address your child’s specific needs.

Prevention is key, and keeping your child’s mouth healthy and cavity free while having a good time is our goal.  Poor care of baby teeth can lead to pain, infections, or even problems with the permanent teeth. We’ll work with you and your child to make sure healthy habits are formed from the very start.
