Long before I ever developed any signs of fear or started having problems with dentists, I went out of my way to find the best dentist possible for my children. One of my kids had some early problems with cavities, and I was determined that amalgam was not ever used. Also, I wanted to make sure that the dentist who treated these problems would be sensitive and caring so that my children did not develop any fear or anxiety from discomfort or pain. You would be surprised how difficult it was to find a good dentist a decade ago (maybe not?) who met these requirements and used composite fillings. Almost all the reputable, highly referred dentists believed in amalgam and would try to convince you it was all right. When I first visited Dr. Sachdev, it was because I had some serious personal challenges, but I quickly discovered he was the best all round dentist I had ever met—and didn’t push amalgam. He is sensitive to individual needs, totally understands pain-free dentistry without sedation, and is a true artist with cosmetic dentistry. Not to mention, he is a highly educated gentleman who always treats everyone with kindness, consideration and the highest level of professionalism while being down-to-earth, very likeable and can carry on a conversation with anyone about anything.

My three year old loves going to the dentist now. Dr. Crisp and the staff at this office are an excellent choice if you are looking for a pediatric dentist. At our last visit we saw Laura & Dr. Crisp. They both made me and my daughter welcome and comfortable. My daughter said she was a little nervous when we went in but it quickly faded. They have a friendly reception staff and clean waiting room. You receive a dental care kit when you leave and they have a toy bucket kids can pick toys from to take home. It may sound simple but it helps encourage good behavior. These few things are why we will keep going back and recommend this office to all. Two days after our visit my daughter got a thank you card in the mail from Laura. You can't beat the individual attention they give to all their patients.

Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
