What is a “Dental Home”?

A dental home is an important concept in pediatric dentistry, and it refers to the dental office where your child receives their regular oral care. Bringing your child to the same dentist for routine appointments from a young age has a number of benefits:

  • Your child will become familiar with the dental team, making them more comfortable with the dentist and the process of a regular appointment
  • Going to the dentist will seem normal and routine, and they will be less likely to develop dental anxiety in the future
  • Our doctors will be able to track their oral health and development over time, ensuring proper preventive care and treatment

By seeing Dr. Brock for regular oral exams and cleanings every six months, you and your child can develop a relationship with our team and get personalized, quality care. Whether you’re in Houston, Webster, Clear Lake, or League City, we can’t wait to meet you and your family!

When should I bring my child to the dentist?

According to the AAPD, your child should see a dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts, or when they turn 1 year old, whichever comes first. After their first visit, it’s important to return every 6 months for an oral exam and teeth cleaning. Routine visits from a young age will give our team a chance to work with you to encourage healthy oral hygiene habits as your child grows, and it will also help us catch any dental issues early.

Are dental x-rays safe for kids?

Yes! Dental x-rays for kids use a very low amount of radiation and they help detect even the smallest dental issues before they become bigger problems. We will only suggest dental x-rays if they are necessary, and we take a gentle, communicative approach to the entire process so your child remains comfortable.

What’s the difference between a family dentist and a pediatric dentist?

Family dentists treat patients of all ages, while pediatric dentists focus exclusively on children and teenagers. Pediatric dentists have 2-3 years of additional training in this specialty, so as a parent you will have peace of mind knowing that Dr. Brock offers expert care. Dr. Brock is a skilled dentist and he has years of experience introducing kids to the world of dentistry with upbeat enthusiasm.

How can I protect my child’s teeth?

Brushing twice per day and flossing once per day is the best way to protect little teeth. In addition, a proper diet low in sugars and simple starches can help prevent cavities. If your child plays contact sports, it is a good idea to make sure their teeth are protected with a mouth guard.
