Barrington Children's Dentistry / Kids Dentistry

The American Academy of Pediatric dentistry recommends the first dental visit before the first year of age.

The doctor is a general dentist member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. We place a special emphasis on the care of young patients. Dr. Sefranek has taken numerous advanced courses in children's dentistry and our office utilizes the tell-show-do approach. For the very young, the first visit is usually done with the child sitting on the parent's lap in the dental chair. All children are given pointers on how to brush as well as a full orthodontic screening. This approach minimizes cost, avoids sedative medications, and initiates healthy attitudes toward dentistry that are carried on throughout adulthood.

Dr. Sefranek has lectured on early orthodontic treatment and space maintenance in courses for the pediatric dentist and the general dentist providing children's dentistry. His approach to guided eruption helps ensure there is room for all teeth in the young patient and avoids removal of adult teeth for orthodontic purposes.

Children love our ceiling DVD /VCR player and Lego train.
