The Importance Early Dental Care Carrollton, GA
Child at Dentist

As a parent, you only want the best for your child. We will do whatever we can to protect them from harm. When it comes to dental health, one of the best things we can do is take them to the dentist starting at an early age. Teaching good brushing and flossing habits is only half the battle when it comes to keeping a healthy and pain-free mouth. At the office of Dr. Tejal Kakade, we recommend early pediatric dental care for the following reasons:

Teaches Good Oral Hygiene to Both Parent and Child

The way you clean your own teeth may not be what your child’s smile needs. Early dental visits allows us to show both parents and children about the best ways to brush and floss. We can also tackle common topics like teething, thumb sucking and teeth grinding.

Disease Prevention

Yes, your child’s baby teeth will eventually fall out. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t worry about these tiny teeth. It is important to keep baby teeth free of cavities or disease so that the permanent teeth can fully develop and emerge. Professional dental care such as cleanings, fluoride treatment and sealants is a primary way to prevent cavities in kids, which (by the way) is the leading cause of missed school days!

Accident Prevention

We can’t always avoid accidents, especially when it comes to kids. However, if your child loves to play contact sports or spends time on the BMX track or ice skating rink, we can offer a custom mouthguard to protect their growing smile from damage after a bad fall or other mouth trauma. A pediatric dentist can discuss your options at your regular dental visits.

Monitor and Correct Bite Alignment

One component of routine pediatric dental acre is evaluating your child’s bite development and alignment. We can predict misalignment or improper eruption of permanent teeth and recommend early orthodontic treatment when necessary.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Jordan D.

Calm and peaceful office.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
