Just for Grins Lets You Start Your Oral Health Care Off with a Smile

By Elisha Neubauer

When your little one is ready for their first dental visit, don't you want to be sure you're getting them the best care? How do you do that? What do you need to look for in the facility?

The first step is finding a dentist who can treat your little one in the specified way that only a pediatric dentist can do. Treatment for pediatric patients differs greatly from that of general dentistry. According to the dentists at Just for Grins, Pediatric Dentists are specialists in growth and development and treatment of children. Regardless of whether a general dentist sees child patients, they are not specialized in the treatment procedures and that can make all the difference in your child's care.

"Probably the first thing to know is that according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the American Board of Pediatrics the first Dental visit for any child should take place between 6 months or a year or with the eruption of the first tooth," explains the team at Just for Grins. "Not less important is that you know where you are taking your child." They suggest researching; finding a pediatric dentist who will suit your child's needs and make them feel comfortable during their visits.

And if there's one thing the staff at Just for Grins is good at, it's making children feel comfortable. In fact, it's one of the reasons behind starting the practice. The staff cites helping children obtain a better outlook at themselves as one of their inspirations for launching Just for Grins. "To improve their self-esteem and smiles," they affirm.

To this date, the facility has been in the community for over ten years, helping children across the Santa Fe area feel better about their smiles and kick start a healthy dental care routine without any fears, fuss, or intimidation. "We helped, and continue to be a part of this community by serving children who needs simply - the best," state the Just for Grins team. They do this by ensuring that only board certified pediatric dentists are brought onboard, and that each and every treatment plan?as well as the coordination of the treatment?is done correctly.

Just for Grins has one simple mission: a commitment to establishing a Dental Home for every patient. To do this, they provide a trained team who advocates policies, guidelines, and programs which promote oral health in infants, children, and adolescents. They are fully equipped to handle any special health concerns or needs and are there to provide adequate information to parents in a variety of media formats -- including, but not limited to, video, verbal, digital, audio, and written. As the team states, "This model provides an important and positive impact on our community."
