Young Smiles Ltd. is a pediatric dental office dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. Dr. Helen Christopher & our team has the experience and qualifications to care for a child's teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
It is important for you as a parent to choose the right dentist for your child’s dental needs. Just as you look for a pediatrician to take care of your child’s medical needs, you want a dentist and dental staff who focus on meeting the special needs and challenges of children and adolescents. Good oral health is an important part of your overall health and a positive dental experience at a young age will influence your child’s view of dentistry for the rest of their life.
Of course we provide excellent dental treatment at Young Smiles, but we go beyond the basics to make sure your child’s visit to the dentist is safe, relaxed, informative, and fun. It all works together to put our patients at ease so we can provide the best care and education.
Young Smiles is led by Dr. Helen Christopher who specializes in pediatric dentistry. Pediatric dentists are highly-trained dental specialists who work with infants, children and adolescents. After graduating from dental school, pediatric dentists continue their advanced education and training for an additional two to three years.
This specialty education includes child psychology, behavior guidance, methods to reduce anxiety and build trust, preventive techniques, restorative dentistry, and the treatment of handicapped or chronically ill children. Pediatric dentists also go through yearly training and re-certification to stay up-to-date with the most recent improvements in technology and patient care.
Our dentists and staff focus on providing quality dental care and education tailored to fit our patients. We educate patients and parents on the importance of preventive care, hygiene and treatments in an open and easy-to-understand manner.
