Pediatric Dentistry

Gentle Dental for Growing Smiles

If you have a little one (or two or three!) running around, you’re a new parent, or expecting, we want you to know Dr. Maryam Jackson and our team provide gentle, comforting dental care as soon as their first tooth emerges. We want their first dental experiences to be fun, rewarding, and educational for a lifetime of oral health and positive dental visits.

Let us make this easy for both of you.

We offer family appointment blocks, so you can get the whole family taken care of in a single visit, and flexible financing options to work with your budget.

Caring for Baby Teeth

You should wipe your baby’s gums with a warm, wet washcloth after feeding to reduce acidity for a healthier oral environment. Once their teeth start coming in, you should use a child-sized (soft-bristled) toothbrush and water only until they’re able to spit, when you can begin using a small dollop of toothpaste. When teeth start to touch, flossing should be added to your daily routine. You should come see us as soon as their first tooth emerges, so we can provide twice-yearly cleanings and exams.

Exams & Preventive Care

We practice a preventive model of dentistry here at Smiles of Orange, which means we love to see patients of all ages twice yearly for cleanings and exams. This gives us a chance to remove plaque and tartar buildup, plus use some of our cool technology to detect potential problems before they progress. This includes our laser cavity detection device, helping us find cavities sooner so we can treat them while they’re small. We love to help kids keep their teeth healthy and feel comfortable in our care.

Kids Dental Exam

Treatments & Services

While we do our best to keep tiny teeth healthy with education, homecare, and regular exams and cleanings, sometimes we need a little extra help to get the job done. Baby teeth are more cavity-prone, so we provide protective sealants and fluoride treatments to keep tooth decay at bay. If a cavity does sneak its way into one of their precious teeth, we provide tooth-colored fillings to stop it in its tracks. We also provide custom mouthguards for your star athlete.

Dental Health in Pregnancy

If you’re expecting, you already know this is a magical time of life that comes with its own unique challenges. The best thing you can do for your growing baby is to maintain your own oral health as best as possible through diligent oral hygiene, a healthy diet, and regular dental checkups. Hormonal changes and other factors can increase your risk for dry mouth, tooth decay, and gum disease, which can increase your risk for preterm birth, low birth weight, and preeclampsia. Approximately 75% of pregnant women develop pregnancy gingivitis (early-stage gum disease), so it’s extremely important to stay on top of your dental health during pregnancy for both your and baby’s sake.

Your safety is our first priority!

Welcome to Smiles of Orange! The information below highlights our new safety protocols following the California Department of Public Health. These new protocols are in addition to our existing, extensive, infection control protocols:

  1. Pre-appointment screening questions: We will ask a series of questions before your appointment over the phone or via email.
  2. Taking your temperature: Before entering the treatment room to check for fever. Everyone, including employees, will be screened with a health questionnaire and forehead temperature reading daily.
  3. Check-in: Text or call us when you arrive and wait in your car. We are limiting the number of people in our reception area and have removed magazines.
  4. Face masks: Each person in the office will be required to wear a mask (including us), our team will let you know when to remove the mask for your appointment.
  5. Parents & Guardians: We ask that only one guardian attend the appointment with their dependent.
  6. We have new medical-grade HEPA air filtration units in every treatment area and throughout the office!
  7. Once in the operatory we will ask you to pre-rinse with a hydrogen peroxide-based rinse to lower the pathogens in your mouth.
  8. We will continue to use high speed suctioning and isolation tools when generating aerosols (Purevac HVE, DryShield, Rubber Dams)
  9. We will have additional PPE including hair coverings, long jackets, faceshields and N95 or higher masks

We are committed to keeping you safe and healthy! We anticipate resuming regular hygiene visits by May 26, 2020 and are rescheduling many patients that we had to cancel due to the closure. Thank you for your patience as we reach out. We can’t wait to see you!
