The Purpose Of Pediatric Dental Care Marietta, GA
A pre-school girl in a dental chair being educated about oral health at Marietta GA dentistry.

An integral part of encouraging overall health and wellness begins at an early age with pediatric dental care. In fact, Colgate reports that before any teeth erupt, it’s wise to wipe down the gums with gauze or a soft, wet washcloth. This establishes a routine for when primary teeth appear, and this is the purpose of pediatric dental care—to ensure that teeth are healthy and free of decay and dental disease.

Whether around the first birthday or when a child’s first tooth appears, it’s important to schedule a dental visit. This is a particularly crucial time, as most children are transitioning from nursing and/or a baby bottle to a cup and more solid foods. At this appointment, a pediatric dentist will make sure that teeth are erupting properly, and he or she will remove excess plaque and bacteria from teeth and gums.

For parents of small children, pediatric dentists provide much needed tools and resources for how to take care of their children’s teeth. They also provide insight into a child’s diet, particularly when children begin eating regular foods. As a precaution, dentists recommend steering clear of starchy foods and sugars, with the exception of a treat here and there. This is because primary teeth are an important foundation for permanent teeth. In other words, the future of a child’s dental health depends on the health of their baby teeth.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
