Our mission is to help families in Elk Grove, Sacramento, Galt, Roseville, and Lodi achieve excellent oral health. Studies show that when children have good dental care during youth that their mouths are healthier as adults. That is why we make children our special guests at Oak Tree Dentistry.
Nothing brightens our day more than when children visit our dental office. Dr. Pritpal Gill engages children’s curiosity and puts them at ease during every dental appointment.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental appointment by the time their first tooth makes an appearance or by their first birthday.
We welcome children for this early childhood visit, where we will spend time with parents discussing their children’s development, demonstrating how to best care for little smiles at home, and answering any questions they may have.
Nutritional counseling, behavior modification (thumb-sucking and bottle use), and hygiene instruction are all part of the kids' dentistry we provide.
A ride in the chair and a meet and greet with our team will help your little one develop a positive attitude about dentistry that lasts a lifetime.
Gentle Dentistry for Kids
If your child requires dental care, such as a filling, Dr. Gill will always make sure that they feel at ease and comfortable with their procedure.
By speaking to children in the language they understand and fostering their natural sense of curiosity, dentistry becomes an adventure rather than something they fear.
Parents are welcome to either participate in appointments or to sit back in our comfortable welcome area, enjoying treats from our comfort menu, while we look after their kids.
Preventive Dentistry for Kids
Cavities are the most common preventable childhood disease. You might think that cavity prevention in baby (primary) teeth is not important since they fall out anyway, but primary teeth actually provide the blueprint for adult teeth to emerge correctly.
We offer preventive dentistry to keep your child’s primary and permanent teeth healthy and comfortable.
- Dental exams
- Children’s cleanings
- Fluoride treatment
- Athletic mouthguards
- Space maintainers
Every child is different, and Dr. Gill will discuss his findings with you so that you can make the best choices for your child’s oral health.
Older Children and Teens
We work closely with local orthodontists, oral surgeons, and pediatric dentists to make sure your child always has the best dentistry available. As children grow, they face new challenges with their oral health.
- Orthodontic evaluations
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- Athletic mouthguards
- Bruxism nightguards
We love watching families grow and will celebrate your child’s milestones as they grow up. Each child is a valued part of your family, and therefore, a part of ours.
