While MDI serves all ages at our clinic, helping children is always a special experience for us. There are so many children in Dane County that fall through the cracks and are not receiving needed dental care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a first dental visit by 12 months of age, but sadly, many children do not have a dental checkup until their baby teeth already have cavities.
When we had a very brave patient, Faith, come to our clinic for her first dental check-up with Dr. Reigle. Faith is 5 years old and while she had several cavities, Dr. Reigle made sure she had no discomfort. A child’s first visit to the dentist can be an experience that can continue to influence well into adulthood, which is why MDI takes our little ones dental care very seriously. Faith’s teeth were restored to a healthy state and she was very excited to have her own Disney character oral hygiene kit!
