Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry | Dental Hospital Bangalore

Pedodontics and Preventive

Children are extremely valuable. Every parent endeavors to provide for their children’s basic needs- one of the most important of which is health. Good oral health begins in childhood and this can be achieved only by cultivating healthy dental practices. We are committed to entering into a partnership with parents to help children achieve optimal oral health.

Dental diseases especially dental cavities are unfortunately fairly common in children. We aim at providing guidance to parents, educating them, instilling in them correct dental attitudes and practices which can then be emulated by their children. Our dental health team, comprising of skilled doctors and support staff recognizes that every child is unique. We therefore design treatment programmes keeping in mind the distinctive individual needs of the patients.

The treatment programmes incorporate simple preventive regimes which when imbibed into daily routines by parents and children safeguard their future dental health. We offer a holistic approach with both general and dental health of the patients being given equal priority. Our multidisciplinary team- comprising of staff from VIMS & RC and Vydehi Rehabilitation Centre, in addition to our dental health team, are trained in management of children with special needs. We have been actively involved in community service, having enrolled several schools in our Primary Preventive School Health Programme. This programme offers both preventive and therapeutic dental health care to children and includes a training programme in preventive dental health for school teachers. The Department has enjoyed the reputation for providing high quality and cost effective dental treatment to children while ensuring both patient and parent satisfaction.

Give your child a GIFT-Good Oral Health –A Healthy Smile. We stand committed with you.
