Finding a pediatric dentistry practice in Idaho Falls, ID, that is kind, caring, and used to working with children is important because it will help relieve any worries or concerns the child or parents may have. Dr. Mark Tall has more than 20 years of experience treating patients of all ages. He has hand-selected a small team of dental hygienists and assistants who help to create the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere our patients enjoy. Our staff receives education and training every three months and has experience working with children from their toddler years through adolescence.
One of our primary goals at Sandcreek Dental is to provide a comfortable environment for our patients. We strive to ensure each and every patient has a good experience when they come in for an appointment. Making sure your child has a positive experience with Dr. Tall and our staff helps to prevent the development of dental anxieties, fears, and phobias. These fears can prevent your child from getting the dental care he or she needs later in life.
Our other primary focus is teaching our pediatric patients good oral hygiene practices. For children who are not yet old enough to brush their own teeth, we can demonstrate the proper technique for the parents. As your child gets older, our hygienists can show your child the proper technique for brushing and flossing.
Our team not only wants to set your child up for a lifetime of good health, but we want to create a relationship with your child that will last a lifetime.
Children’s teeth are more prone to decay, so regular dental cleanings and exams are extremely important. Research has shown that children who suffer from chronic cavities are more likely to deal with tooth decay and other dental complications as an adult. By preventing and treating these issues at a young age, we can decrease the risk of more severe dental concerns later in life.
Focusing on proper oral hygiene and preventive care can truly set your child up for a lifetime of good oral health. When the primary, or “baby”, teeth remain healthy, the adult teeth come in strong and healthy as well. Instilling good habits will go a long way in maintaining your child’s oral health.
Because the oral health and physical health are so interconnected, your child may enjoy better health overall. Poor oral health can increase risk for the development of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other health concerns later in life. A good dental care routine may help your child avoid these serious health issues.
At Sandcreek Dental, we understand how it important it is to find a pediatric dentist you can trust. Our team not only wants to set your child up for a lifetime of good health, but we want to create a relationship with your child that will last a lifetime.
