Our WHOLE child mission statement

Whole child approach to pediatric dental care in Wheat Ridge

At Kid Focus Dentistry, we don’t just look for cavities. Every child who comes through the doors of our Wheat Ridge office deserves a more comprehensive approach. We look at the overall oral health of our pediatric patients, because a child’s oral health plays a crucial role in their overall health and development. Your child’s oral health affects the way a child breathes, speaks, eats, sleeps, develops, and builds self-confidence. We call this understanding the “whole child approach.”

We aim to detect and correct potential pediatric oral problems early so your child reach their full genetic potential. Our early intervention approach yields positive results, including long-lasting oral health, good dental hygiene habits, and a lower lifetime cost to patients (and their parents) by preventing more serious future problems.

We incorporate the “WHOLE CHILD” approach to our pediatric treatments in a variety of ways:

The staff is all tailored to every child’s needs. I have watched them provide excellent service to not only my 4 children for the last 13 years but any child that is in there. I bring 4 wild children in at the same time everytime and although they are grown to not being running wild anymore, when they were they understood and were respectful. They are a well oiled machine and dr. NGO is amazing. They are gentle and allow the children a safe place to take it all in. This place will not traumatize your children. As we know the dentist isn’t fun. This place is fun. Thank you kids focus. One happy mom

Our positive behavior management technique

We will not only meet but EXCEED you and your child’s expectations. Our goal is to provide every patient with an array of positive experiences. Through education and preventative care measures, we wish to prevent future dental disease. Knowledge is power, and our method of solid communication helps to quell any fears. When a patient graduates from our dental office, our hope is to send them off with thorough knowledge and a passion for maintaining a healthy dental future. As your children grow older, we hope that they can approach each moment in life with a big, healthy smile.

Using N20 (nitrous oxide) on most primary (baby) teeth

Did you know that baby teeth do not have the same nerves as adult teeth? For this reason, your child may have cavities without ever letting you know, until they are really bad. This is why when we do baby teeth fillings, we recommend the use of N20. We strongly believe in N20 because when used appropriately, it is the safest option for your child. Numbing medication requires your child’s body to metabolize the substance. N20 does not need to be metabolized by the body since it only works while your child is breathing it in. Also, the effect only lasts about 5 minutes after we take your child off of it.

The way we treat crowding and development in children with myobrace

Most parents believe that crowded teeth are a “problem”.  But what if crowded teeth are a symptom of bigger issues instead? Did you know that most often, crowded teeth are a result of your child’s oral functional problems? For instance: mouth breathing, reverse swallowing, and having a tongue thrust are all bad habits that lead to long-term incorrect growth development. Which also ultimately has an adverse effect on your child’s quality of life. At our office, we use the Myobrace system to help correct these oral habits.  The system not only corrects oral habits, but helps drastically improve your child’s sleep, airways, speech, and teeth crowding.

The use of pediatric laser dentistry

We are using laser as a complementary tool to solve important dental problems for our patients. Laser is used in helping treat tongue tie and lip tie; which play a big role in breastfeeding, speech, and teeth alignment. Also, the laser helps with gum re-contouring after braces. It is also a great tool to treat cold sores; the site heals a lot quicker and future outbreaks in that same area are less frequent. Best of all, laser surgeries promote healing twice as fast as traditional methods.

Silver diamide fluoride treatments for kids

To help treat very young children that unfortunately have a few cavities, it might not be ideal to use general anesthesia as an option.  As a result, we now use Silver Diamide Fluoride to give your child a better and safer option to contain the cavities until your child is ready for anesthesia.

Pediatric icon therapy

For those unfortunate few children with Fluorosis or enamel defects on the front teeth we use icon therapy. A great new conservative approach to help treat esthetic problems for your child.

Overall, by exploring more than just the traditional ways of treating an oral environment, we take a step back and look at the problems from different perspectives and a comprehensive approach. This allows us to see the long-term consequences that otherwise might be missed when trying to hyper-focus on just one problem/one solution. We try to solve the problem by using dynamic, and innovative tools that help treat your child as a “whole”. We truly believe in this approach and that it will not just solve, but help prevent problems.  As well as steer your child to better, long-term, oral development.
