Children & Teens

Have Your Dentist Talk to Your Kids about Oral Hygiene Expectations
Have your dentist (the expert) share with your child about why it’s important to keep their teeth and their gums healthy with regular brushing and flossing.

Power Struggles with Older Kids
If and when you get into a power struggle with your older child, instead of fighting them on it, try handing them a toothbrush with the toothpaste already on it. Be sure to use no words, only action. Another option for older kids is the type of rinse that actually turns colors in the areas where they may have missed. This is effective in showing how much plaque is on their teeth and might inspire them to brush and floss more regularly.

Dr. Patel and Tara were wonderful! They are both kind, took the time to explain everything they were doing, and very thorough. Thank you!

This review is from Bruce Allen. Went in for a teeth cleaning and it was done rapidly and with fabulous attention to detail. I was also advised of important issues to address with my (old) teeth. Highly recommended!

Everyone at Solana Beach Smiles is amazing. They always go above and beyond for their patients. Especially Anita, Marlene, Tia and of course Dr. Jesse! Needed help with scheduling because we have a newborn and a crazy schedule, and Anita bent over backwards to accommodate our family.
