Highland Dental Clinic is pleased to offer pediatric dentistry

At Highland Dental Clinic, we are proud to offer dental services to patients of all ages, providing adult and pediatric dentistry to those in and around the South Lakeland, Florida community. Dr. Blanca Fernandez and her team serve patients as young as seven and provide preventative, general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry services. We offer personalized mouthguards for specific sports and apply dental sealants and fluoride to prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Why is it important to see a dental professional offering pediatric dentistry?

Regular dental visits allow young patients to build a strong oral health foundation. The American Dental Association, more commonly referred to in shorthand as the ADA, recommends that children visit their dentist as often as their parents, typically every six months, for a cleaning and evaluation. During these important appointments, Dr. Fernandez and her team will examine your child’s teeth and gums after her hygienists perform a thorough cleaning and take any necessary dental x-rays to evaluate the smile. If there are any concerns that arise, we will bring them to your attention so you are well-educated on your child’s oral health needs. Early detection of conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth decay can allow for treatment before the decay or infection worsens and becomes more damaging to the teeth and gums.

What are the advantages of working with a dental office providing pediatric dentistry?

 We understand the value of your time and energy, which is why we find it convenient for parents and children to schedule back-to-back appointments. We are well-educated in caring for children who might have dental anxiety and are unsure about what to expect during their visit. We make everyone feel at ease, regardless of age!
