Our Pediatric Dental Specialists
Dr. Christine Rimi Kobayashi
Dr. Tami Fujino
Preventive Oral Hygiene Instruction:
This includes proper brushing, flossing and eating habits, ideal fluoride levels and the use of pit and fissure sealants. We strive to provide a fun, educational environment whose children learn about the importance of good dental hygiene.
This includes children’s fillings, crowns and prosthesis, including treatment of the often devastating early childhood caries. We are committed to discussing all options before these procedures and answering all questions you may have. Always working for the goal of a healthy smile is our first priority.
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedation during dental treatment. Sedation is most commonly used during extensive procedures, for patients with dental phobia or for patients who find it difficult to sit still. There are different types of sedation, including nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), oral sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthetic.
Growth and Development:
As pediatric dental specialists, Dr. Rimi and Dr. Tami are experts on the growth and development of children’s dentition, jaws and craniofacial structures. Early growth and development evaluation may provide your child with a more positive experience should they need braces treatment.
While our goal is to prevent dental emergencies, we understand that the need for urgent dental care is sometimes necessary and can be a stressful experience for both parents and children. We strive to handle dental emergencies promptly and with compassion
