Letter To Parents
Welcome to our Practice.
Our Dental Home concept is thea ongoing relationship between us, your child’s Pediatric Dentists and your child, and includes comprehensive oral health care, beginning no later than age one. Establishing a Dental Home means that a child’s oral health care is managed in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated and family-centered way.
Our Vision is to provide an environment in which your child can develop a positive attitude towards dentistry. We believe in creating healthy smiles and teeth that are cavity free. Our team focuses on “coaching” children and their parents for a lifetime of good oral hygiene and dental health.
Our Mission is to provide specialized and comprehensive care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special needs in a friendly and safe environment with the best technology.
Our Practice Philosophy is a Medical Approach rather than a Surgical one. We believe that for our patients to achieve a high level of health, it is important to look at all the contributing factors, rather than simply fixing the immediate problem. Instead of just treating the symptom, we look at the source of any dental issue i.e. the why and how, and aim to ensure it is solved for the future, thereby eliminating potential problems later in life.
This concept is called “Health Risk Analysis & Management” and this is how we provide holistic dentistry and care for your children.
Based on individualized Dental Risk Assessment, we provide customized and tailor made treatment and recall system for patients. We believe in treating the cause of dental decay employing principles of Preventive and Minimally Invasive Dentistry.
Our Technology is state of art. In our pursuit to provide excellent dental treatment to your loved ones, it is our endeavour to constantly upgrade our knowledge and skills. We invest in the latest technologies and are proud to be India’s first and only Pediatric Laser Dental Practice.
We offer objective analysis and accurate diagnosis with Electronic Dental Records including intra oral photographs and X – rays which are easily accessible to patients and parents at any time.
Our Sterilization uses a strict protocol for infection control. Our trained staff cleans all used instruments with chemicals, following which they are wrapped in sterilization pouches. These pouches are then sterilized in autoclaves. The working surfaces are also disinfected using disinfectants.
We welcome the opportunity to be your child’s dentist at “Kids Dental” – the New Face of Children’s Dentistry, where fear is replaced with fun!
