When you bring your child in for a checkup with our children’s dentist in Penfield, you can expect compassionate, personalized care from a skill professional. At the office of Dr. Gregory Merkley we welcome children of all ages for care and offer a comprehensive range of services designed to address their needs.
Our goal is to help children establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. As your children’s dentist in Penfield, we place an emphasis on preventive care and strive to keep your child’s smile healthy from the start by providing routine checkups, professional dental cleanings and supplemental treatments designed to protect their smiles from tooth decay. Studies show that children in the United States lose 51 school hours each year due to dental disease, but with back-to-school checkups we can help your child avoid setbacks and spend more time learning and having fun. We recommend that children see us for their first checkup at a young age so that we can help keep their smiles healthy and on the right track. We’ll also monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth and jaws, and will teach you the best ways to clean and care for your child’s developing smile. As your children get older and become more able to care for their own teeth, we teach them the importance and responsibility of brushing, flossing and making the right nutritional and lifestyle choices for maintaining a healthy smile. We also recommend periodic fluoride treatment and dental sealants to help strengthen as well as shield tooth enamel to protect against cavities.
At the office of Dr. Gregory Merkley, we make every checkup a positive learning experience for your child. As your children’s dentist in Penfield, we help your little ones feel comfortable and at ease whenever you come in for a visit. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
