Caring for Your Child’s Teeth
While we recommend booking your child in for their first dental exam within 6 months of growing their first tooth, preserving your child’s oral health should start the moment they are born. It is important to maintain a regular oral health routine with your child and prevent the development of harmful bacteria in their mouth.
Cleaning Your Baby’s Gums
Wiping your baby’s gums twice a day and after each feeding is essential for preventing bacteria build-up in their mouth. Please clean their gums with a damp washcloth and avoid toothpaste until they grow their first teeth.
Brushing Your Baby’s Teeth
Once your child grows their first teeth, you can start gently brushing them with toothpaste. We recommend bringing your child for a dental exam after they grow their first tooth to help determine whether they are at risk of tooth decay or gum disease. We may recommend certain kinds of toothpaste for your child depending on their needs.
Booking Regular Exams
Regular dental exams are essential for maintaining your child’s healthy smile. We will likely recommend appointments every 6 months to ensure we detect issues well before they can affect your child’s oral health.
Our Pediatric Services
Routine dental appointments help your child understand how important their oral health is and what they need to do to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
We offer several different services for children and can help create treatment plans if we discover issues that need addressing. Some of our most common services include:
Exams & Cleanings
Exams and cleanings are arguably the most important dental appointments your child should have when they are young. Exams can help detect issues before they affect your child’s oral health, and cleanings can thoroughly clear away plaque and tartar build-ups known for causing tooth decay and gum disease. On top of this, we can also help your child learn how to take care of their teeth properly.
Learn more about our exam and cleaning process on our Dental Exams and Cleanings page.
Mouthguards can help protect your child’s teeth from grinding and injury. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can lead to flattened, chipped, or broken teeth, as well as jaw tenderness, headaches, and even neck pain.
We create moulds for the mouthguard by taking exact measurements of your child’s mouth. These measurements are sent to a dental laboratory, where they create the mouthguard itself using comfortable, hygienic materials.
We can apply dental sealants to your child’s molars. These sealants can minimize plaque and tartar build-up and lower the risk of oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease.

Can not say enough about how amazing the staff is at the office. I fell down some steps smashing my front teeth out. Since the accident I have been very well taken care off. Dr Adatia is not only and amazing dentist but an amazing person. I would wholeheartedly recommend this dental office to anyone.
The Symmetry Dental team is genuinely interested in your well being and is connected to you as a patient not just a ‘number on file’. Dr. Adatia is very thorough and works hard for the long term success of patient issues. Very pleasant environment and they stand behind their work.
Dr. Adatia and her staff are the greatest. I always feel comfortable with her which really says a lot for me. I have had terrible experiences as a youngster and because of that I was always very nervous in a dentists office. The staff in the front office always make me feel welcome and comfortable and then it just continues with Dr. Adatia and all her professional staff.
I suffered from “Dentist – phobia” and I’m happy to say that those days are over. Dentistry has come a long way !! Thank you Dr. Adatia and all the staff.
As I walk in to the reception area, I am always greeted by name and given a big smile. I am treated like I am coming to visit a friend. It really is a pleasure to come for my dentist appointment. I recommend Symmetry dental to everyone!
I’m not sure I would usually use the words amazing about a dentist. But I’m about to. Everyone at Symmetry Dental is AMAZING! EVERYONE! They make you feel like family. At this dentist I feel important, cared for, and like I’m getting the best dentist care in the world. I didn’t expect to write something like this in regards to a dentist and the staff, but it’s so true. I would say they’re the best of the best and I’m thankful to have found them.
Excellent, professional staff. Very happy that I came upon their ad. Would highly recommend this Dental office.
If you’re reading this please understand all of us in this world shake our heads at how bad customer service is these days. Symmetry Dental deserves a huge “high five” for the amazing professionalism and customer service. Sarah was by far the best Dental Hygienist I have ever had kudos to that young lady. Dr. Saleema Adatia deserves a gold medal along with everyone I had to deal with upon my appointment. Dental work is expensive, but Symmetry is worth the trip in when a tooth needs fixing. Great job!
