Dentistry

At Seastone Dental, we are a family dental practice close to your home in Summerville. Our dental staff would love the opportunity to meet your family. Seeing the smiling faces of children brings joy to all of us at Seastone Dental. We are focused on creating a fun, safe and comfortable environment for your entire family. At Seastone Dental, we understand that your loved ones may not enjoy coming to the dentist, but we will help them feel at ease when coming to our office.

When to Visit a Dentist for The First Time

As a parent, it's important to know when to take your child to the dentist for the first time. Their first dental visit should be within six months of their first tooth appearing, or by age one. Baby teeth are just as vulnerable to cavities as an adult's, so proper dental care at an early age is essential. In order to make your child's first visit to the dentist an enjoyable one, prepare them in the comfort of your home beforehand.

Preparing Your Child for the Dentist

Before your child's first appointment, you should talk to them about the procedures that a dentist performs. Reading stories like "Elmo Visits the Dentist" can help them gain an understanding of what will happen during their appointment. At Seastone Dental, we will do whatever we can to make you feel comfortable about your child's dental care in our office. During their appointment, your child will get to sit in the "big kid" chair, use a special spinning toothbrush, and choose their favorite toothpaste flavor.

    I just want to share how professional, caring and friendly the staff and Dr. Palmateer at Seastone Dental was. I have the worst anxiety when going to a dentist. This time I felt really welcomed and cared for.
