A dental visit can be a positive experience or a terrifying experience for kids, which can create dental anxiety that carries on into their adult life. At Premier Dental of Canfield, Dr. Barkett and team provide a safe, comfortable environment that eases kids into dental visits and strives to create a relationship with your child that eases any anxiety that they may have. We work hard to establish a relationship early with our pediatric patients so they look forward to future visits.
As a parent, we are here to answer any questions you have about your child's tooth development. Our pediatric visits are designed to monitor their teeth and jaws as they grow and catch any potential problems early.
We see kids as young as 2 years old, providing a lap exam, where mom or dad will hold the toddler in their lap while we do an examination. As kids grow and get more comfortable with pediatric dental visits, they graduate to the "Big Chair" for exams, cleanings and of course a chance to squirt the water jet.
In addition to exams, there are circumstances that require additional dental services are needed. In the event that your child has a cavity in one of their baby teeth, your dentist will fill or seal the cavity. We also offer fluoride treatment to help strengthen tooth enamel. Dental X-rays are also important to see what is happening in your child's gums to ensure teeth are coming in properly and if a tooth extraction is necessary to make room for adult teeth.
At Premier Dental of Canfield, our mission is to maintain healthy teeth and gums for life, which starts with a positive experience when your child is young.

Caring for a teething baby can be challenging. Many parents find themselves with a fussy, impossible-to-please infant in their arms during the various phases of teething. It is important to be able to recognize teething and help manage your baby’s discomfort.
Just as adults do, children can experience anxiety when they are facing an upcoming dental visit. As a parent, this can be an obstacle to getting your child the dental care he or she needs to maintain good oral health. You must address pediatric dental anxiety so that it does not cause your child to miss vital preventive appointments with the dentist. “Skipping the dentist” actually leads to an increase in dental anxiety.
