Recommended dental care for all ages
Orchard Dental Group welcomes patients of all ages. Preventive care begins in infancy, and every year there are different risk factors and care options to consider. Your personal dentistry path at Orchard Dental Group begins with an initial assessment of your current and developing needs.
Dental care for Infants
It’s important to practice good oral hygiene, even before baby teeth emerge. We’ll welcome your new baby with a gentle visit that sets the stage for a happy, healthy relationship with the dentist.
- Evaluate fluoride intake to make sure the infant is getting the benefits without harm
- Observe the sequence as new teeth appear
- Discuss tooth-friendly bottle habits and nutrition
Dental care for Children
Building good habits
We’ll help your child develop a love for the dentist by providing positive early experiences. We’ll teach your child proper at-home practices that will help strengthen teeth and prevent decay.

- Evaluate tooth position and jaw growth to optimize the timing of potential orthodontic care
- Apply sealants and fluoride treatments to maximize cavity-fighting benefits

Staying on track
At a time when it may feel like like all good habits seem to be lost, we’ll keep our relationship with your child positive. And we’ll keep reinforcing the importance of good oral health habits.

- Apply targeted fluoride therapy where enamel is most cavity prone
- Stress the importance of regular check-ups, especially during orthodontic care
