Always accepting new patients!
At Joanna Kleckner DDS, children are our VIPs. In honor of our most important patients, we plan four special days every year just for children. In order to make their dental experience a fun and enjoyable event, we choose a special theme for the day and provide interactive, child-friendly activities and prizes. We also provide gentle, thorough dental care, including routine dental cleanings, x-rays, and fluoride treatments.
Scheduling your child’s first dental appointment on one of our special Kids’ Days helps to ensure your child’s first experience at the dental office will be a positive one. We recommend bringing your child to the dentist no later than age 2. Delaying dental care until they are older increases the risk of childhood cavities. Many problems can be spotted early on when treatment is easier. By acclimating your child to the dentist at a young age, you and your child can learn proper techniques for tooth-brushing and flossing, along with good food and drink choices to help prevent decay. We try very hard to make appointments fun and enjoyable, as to avoid any future anxiety that is often associated with poor childhood dental care.
Our staff and our patients are encouraged to dress up for the day! Pajama Day, Winter Carnival, Sports Day, Spring Fever, Peter Pan, Fun in the Snow, Dr. Seuss’s “The Cat in the Hat," and Pirates and Princesses are some of our favorites. We have even had the Easter Bunny visit with us twice! We align our Kids Days with the local school schedules as much as possible so children do not have to miss class to go to the dentist. Together, we can help you set up your child up for a lifetime of good health by teaching them the importance of taking care of their teeth and body from a young age.
Call us today to schedule your child’s dental appointment on our next Kids Day!
