Fostering a Lifetime of Healthy Smiles
At Corpuz Family Dentistry in Omaha, we believe that children’s dentistry should be a lighthearted and enjoyable experience. Our mission is to lay the foundation for a lifetime of positive dental care by making each dental visit for your child a fun and positive one.
Compassionate Care for Young Patients
Our team, including Dr. Ralph Corpuz, Dr. Rachel Ward, Dr. Jessica Suarez, Dr. Daniel Jones, and our staff, is dedicated to providing compassionate care to your children. We treat every child with the same care and respect we would offer to our own children. Using simple language, we explain procedures to both our young patients and their parents or guardians, ensuring that everyone is informed and comfortable.
Setting the Stage with Infant Oral Exams
Studies show that the early introduction of dental exams contributes to reduced dental treatment needs in childhood. We recommend scheduling your child’s first oral exam when their first tooth erupts. By starting early, we can monitor their oral health and address any concerns as they arise.
Nurturing Oral Health Through Routine Cleanings & Exams
Routine cleanings and exams are essential to maintaining your child’s oral health. Our doctors recommend biannual cleanings to ensure that your child’s teeth stay healthy and strong as they grow.
Digital X-rays provide us with a detailed view of your child’s teeth and jaws, aiding in early diagnosis and treatment planning. While ensuring minimal radiation exposure, digital X-rays offer invaluable insights into your child’s dental health.
Protecting with Fluoride and Sealants
Regular fluoride treatments strengthen enamel and reduce the risk of cavities, while sealants protect the grooved surfaces of your child’s teeth, making them easier to clean. Our commitment to preventive care helps ensure your child’s dental health remains optimal.
Restoring Smiles with Confidence
Restorative dentistry, including fillings and crowns, is designed to restore your child’s teeth to their natural function and appearance. Corpuz Family Dentistry offers a range of restorative procedures to ensure your child can smile confidently.
Addressing Dental Anxiety
We understand that dental anxiety can affect children’s experiences. At Corpuz Family Dentistry, we communicate clearly with your child, ensuring they understand what to expect during their appointment. For those with severe anxiety, we provide sedation options to ensure their comfort.
Safeguarding Smiles During Activities
Sports mouthguards offer essential protection during contact sports and other activities. Custom-fit mouthguards can prevent dental injuries and save your child from extensive dental treatment.
Modern Restorations with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings offer a natural-looking and durable option for your child’s dental restorations. Made from composite resin, these fillings provide strength and aesthetic appeal, particularly for smaller teeth.
Gentle Tooth Extractions When Necessary
While our focus is on preserving your child’s natural teeth, extractions may become necessary due to factors such as decay or overcrowding. Dr. Ralph Corpuz and Dr. Rachel Ward ensure that you and your child understand the procedure, addressing any concerns you may have.
At Corpuz Family Dentistry, we’re dedicated to making your child’s dental experience positive, and enjoyable, and focused on building a foundation for lifelong oral health.
