At the office of Robin N. Whitley DDS, we believe it is important for a child to start practicing good oral hygiene habits early on in order to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile well into adulthood. Our Berkeley children’s dentist has over 25 years of experience as a leading dentist in the area, and remains committed to protecting the oral health of our pediatric patients as well as family members of all ages. In addition to the comprehensive range of dental services we offer for patients at every stage of life, offer your kids the essential care they require to maintain optimal oral health and to ensure the proper development of their smiles.
Your children deserve the very best. As your Berkeley children’s dentist, Dr. Whitley has a reputation for providing gentle and compassionate care with an exceptionally light touch. We place an emphasis on the role of preventive dental care at our practice, to help your children avoid the development of the most common dental conditions. By scheduling checkups at our office once every six months, Dr. Whitley can perform a careful oral exam, monitoring the health and development of their jaws and teeth as well as all of the tissues in and around the oral cavity. Because kids are at an increased risk for developing cavities, we perform gentle and thorough teeth cleanings during their visit and provide age appropriate hands-on instruction in the proper techniques for brushing and flossing at home. As further protection against harmful bacteria, we periodically apply topical fluoride to the teeth to strengthen the enamel and guard against cavities. When the back molars come in, we also apply dental sealants to help prevent food and bacteria from accumulating in the deep crevices of the back teeth. These treatments are endorsed by the American Dental Association, and long established as both safe and effective ways to reduce the incidence of dental decay in children.
