Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dental providers have specialized training in preventing and treating dental issues in children and teenagers. They offer teeth cleanings, dental exams, and a wide array of treatments to ensure your child maintains optimal oral health with a low risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems.

What are the benefits of routine pediatric dentistry?

Taking your child to pediatric dentistry appointments every six months can help them reap the following benefits:

  • Cleaner, whiter teeth
  • Low risk of tooth decay
  • Early detection of dental problems
  • Reduced risk of gum disease
  • Advanced dental treatments
  • Stronger, healthier teeth and gums

Dr. Woo and his team offer preventive dentistry services for kids and teenagers of all ages to lower their risk of dental problems. Early detection and treatment of minor issues can prevent serious complications in the future.

Which pediatric dentistry services are available?

Some of the many pediatric dentistry services available at Hartsdale Dental Care include:

Teeth cleaning

The compassionate dental hygienists at Hartsdale Dental Care gently clean your child’s teeth to remove plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach areas. They also floss between their teeth.


The staff at Hartsdale Dental Care offers on-site dental X-rays to detect pediatric dentistry problems before complications can arise.

Dental exam

During a pediatric dentistry exam, Dr. Woo examines your child’s teeth and gums to look for signs of tooth decay, gums disease, and other oral health problems.

Preventive dentistry

In addition to professional teeth cleaning, some of the numerous preventive dentistry options available at Hartsdale Dental Care include dental sealants and fluoride treatments.

Restorative dentistry

If your child has a cavity or tooth damage, Dr. Woo and his team remove any decay and offer tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, crowns, and other dental restorations. 


The Hartsdale Dental Care experts evaluate your child’s mouth and X-rays to determine if they’re good candidates for orthodontics treatment, such as Invisalign for teenagers or traditional braces for kids of all ages.

Oral surgery

If your child has impacted wisdom teeth, severe tooth decay, crowding, or baby teeth that don’t fall out on their own, Dr. Woo might suggest extraction during minimally invasive oral surgery.

How can my child care for their teeth at home?

Encourage your child to take good care of their teeth at home by brushing at least two times daily with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once a day. Assist your child with brushing until they turn seven or eight years old. Schedule routine dental cleanings and exams at Hartsdale Dental Care every six months.
