Ava Chen DDS
Exceptional Dental Care for Your Family

When should my child have their first dental appointment?

At Ava Chen, DDS, we recommend early dental care, which keeps dentistry noninvasive and comfortable for our littlest patients. Dr. Chen likes to start seeing children at age 2 for an exam; we use a show and tell method that makes it a fun and exciting visit to the dentist. This means that we show your son or daughter exactly what we're doing and tell them what's happening before we get started. We never move forward with any type of procedure unless your child feels comfortable and ready for it.

We love supporting children through all stages of their dental development, and we offer additional services for children as they grow such as fluoride treatment and dental sealants. Our goal is to help your child build a healthy smile and protect their teeth. 

Your children's dentist in Castro Valley will also closely monitor your son or daughter's oral development to let you know if they might benefit from braces. She can also recommend a custom mouth guard for your child if they participate in sports.

We know it can be difficult for families to get the dental care they need in one place, and at Ava Chen, DDS, you'll find an environment where every member of the family can feel comfortable.
