Pediatric Dentistry in Tacoma, WA
As a parent himself, Dr. Hickey understands that you want the best for your child. At Sound To Mountain Dental, we focus on providing the highest quality of dental care in a fun, relaxed environment.
It’s completely normal for a child to be unsure or nervous about their first dental visit, but at Sound To Mountain Dental they don’t have to be! Our practice is designed to make your child comfortable and excited to visit the dentist.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) recommends all children be seen for a checkup every 6 months starting from the time they are one year old. These visits allow Dr. Hickey to closely monitor new changes in your child’s mouth and ensure that you, as a parent, have the information you need to promote continued oral health in your child. Dr. Hickey may suggest additional checkups if your child is more susceptible to cavities, or if your child is showing signs of orthodontic problems.
