Dr. Ostler is a Redmond family dentist committed to providing your child with quality dentistry in a happy, child-friendly environment. Establishing good habits early, in a way that feels safe and fun, is one of the best ways to promote a lifetime of great oral health.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist soon after the first tooth erupts or by their first birthday. This is especially true if you have concerns surrounding the condition of your child’s teeth. During the first visit, Dr. Ostler will examine the teeth and gums and check for signs of decay or other problems. Early checkups give our dentist and team the opportunity to spot any noticeable symptoms before they become bigger issues. We’ll also provide helpful tips regarding at-home care.
Early visits are a great way to establish a positive relationship between your child and his or her dentist. We understand all children are different and will have different attitudes towards their dental visits. Dr. Ostler and her upbeat staff make every effort to make your child’s visit enjoyable. Even simple steps– like giving your child a ride in the dental chair–can help your child learn that visiting the dentist isn’t scary.
We look forward to meeting your child as well as becoming partners in his or her oral health. Call our office to schedule your child’s visit with Redmond family dentist, Dr. Katie Ostler, today!
