Gentle Dentistry for Kids

Lloyd F. Moss, Jr., DDS & Lloyd F. Moss, III, DDS

Pediatric Dentistry in Fredericksburg, VA

We love children! We are a full family practice that understands and meets the dental needs of kids. It would be our honor to be your child’s first and forever dentist.

Our practice will be there for you and children dentistry, offering regular professional cleanings and exams, as well as engaging and educating your child about the benefits of good oral health. We have a lot of fun with kids, and are happy to “show and tell” them everything about what we need to do to keep their mouths healthy. We offer preventive care, including fluoride treatments and sealants to prevent tooth decay. Sometimes cavities happen, so we are also gentle when fillings or other dental work is needed.

Here are some answers to questions parents ask us:

When should I bring my child for his or her first dental visit?

As soon as your child’s teeth begin emerging from their gums, and no later than their first birthday, you should bring him or her to their first visit. We will make sure everything looks normal, and provide instructions for early dental care at home.

My child is scared to go to the dentist. What can I do?

Reassure them that we are their friends and want to help. Also, the earlier they start going to the dentist, the easier it is for them to see that it is a routine and painless part of growing up. Our dentists are excellent with children. We understand dental anxiety and are very gentle and friendly with our smallest patients.

What if my child has an accident and injures his or her teeth?

Call us and we will see you right away. We are even available at night and on weekends – emergencies do not always happen during office hours! We are your emergency dentists. Keep our number in a convenient place, just in case!

We hope you will contact us and make us your family dentist. Call our Fredericksburg, VA dental practice for pediatric dentistry at (540) 373-2080 and make an appointment today!
