Dr. Lynn Leyde joyfully treats children of all ages. Our dentist and team are happy to provide pediatric dentistry in Shoreline, Washington. Your child’s first dental appointment will be short and will not include much treatment. The purpose of this appointment is to give your child the opportunity to meet our dentist in a friendly, non-threatening environment. We want to help your child develop trust for our dentist. Our dentist may ask you to sit in the dental chair with your child during their exam to make them more comfortable. Our dentist will examine all of your child’s teeth for signs of decay, check your child’s bite, and look for any problems with the gums, jaw, and oral tissues. We may clean your child’s teeth. Then you will be educated about dental health care basics for children. Our dentist may discuss one or more of the following topics with you:

• Proper dental hygiene practices for your child’s teeth and gums
• Fluoride
• Oral habits like thumb sucking
• Teething
• Future dental checkups

We invite you to contact Professional Dental Care today to learn more and to schedule your child’s next visit with our dentist. We are excited to serve your whole family!
