Children's Dentistry in Eagle River

At Alpine Family Dentistry, we love helping children develop good oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime! We recommend that you begin bringing your child in for dental appointments by the time they get their first tooth or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. This recommendation follows the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

During your child’s dental appointment, Dr. Brett Kocherhans will assess your child’s oral health thoroughly, offering any necessary treatment recommendations. Our dental team will also help educate you and your child on the best way to care for your child’s teeth and gums.

Starting dental appointments early on in your child’s life is important for their current oral health and their future oral health. Building a good relationship with Dr. Brett means your child will be more likely to feel comfortable and safe in our office as they grow and age. 

That way, when it comes time to treat a cavity, a dental injury, or another dental issue, your child will feel much less nervous coming into our dental office. If your child is used to seeing Dr. Brett and our dental team, it will make dental treatments smoother and easier for everyone involved.

Also, please remember that as a family dentist, Dr. Brett can meet your entire family’s dental needs, so you can all receive care under one roof! You may feel safer putting your child’s dental health in the hands of a dentist you have come to know well as a parent and as a patient.

Keeping Your Child’s Teeth Healthy

With regular checkups, Dr. Brett will help keep your child’s teeth healthy. Dr. Brett recommends fluoride and sealants to help reduce cavities and strengthen teeth in young children. He and his team strive to provide children with the encouragement and knowledge they need to maintain their oral hygiene on their own at home.
