Pediatric Dentistry

A child’s first visit to the dentist can affect the way they view oral health in the future. That’s why it takes an experienced doctor to make the first visit a positive one! John B. Witte, DDS, PC, is committed to his specialization in pediatric dentistry. Our office makes your child’s comfort and safety priority number one, so they can feel happy and calm during every visit. As soon as your baby grows their first teeth, oral care becomes a necessity. We’ll get you scheduled for regular visits and child-friendly oral hygiene tips. Our team can educate both you and your child to make sure you’re well-informed on everything they’ll need to maintain a healthy smile!

What Sets Us Apart

It’s important to choose the right pediatric dentist for your child. John B. Witte, DDS, PC has over 30 years of experience working with babies, children, teens, and patients with special needs. His years of specialized training after dental school set him apart from other dentists because he is entirely dedicated to caring for children. There’s a reason we’ve been in business for so long, and it’s because we make children and their parents happy with every visit.

Dental Care for Your Baby

If you’re welcoming a new child, their oral health is in safe hands with Dr. Witte. In addition to the specialized support and emotional care that pediatric dentistry requires, children’s oral care is very different from adult oral care. Baby teeth and gums require unique treatment to ensure that everything is growing correctly and stays healthy. We recommend bringing your baby in for a visit  within six months of their first tooth’s eruption!

Why Are Baby Teeth Important?

Baby teeth need care, too! They set a precedent for your child’s future oral care habits, but they also assist in speech and chewing. Baby teeth, if neglected, can get cavities and other potentially-dangerous infections just like adult teeth.

Gum Disease in Children

Improper oral hygiene can lead to damage in your child’s gums through plaque buildup, potentially leading to tooth loss in baby teeth and permanent teeth. With every checkup, we’ll go over proper brushing and flossing techniques and check for signs of gum disease.
