Vista, CA -- (SBWire) -- 06/17/2014 --Dr. Ethan Fox, a caring dentist in Vista CA, specializes in advanced dental care for the entire family. At his practice, Vista Smiles, he offers a variety of dental treatments including CEREC tooth restoration, orthodontics, wisdom teeth, cavity fillings, implants, night guards and mouth guards, root canals, tooth restorations and much more.

Dr. Fox also offer specialized dentistry for children and adolescents in a child-friendly environment. According to him, “Children should see a dentist much earlier than most people realize, at least by the age of 12 months. It is to make certain that teeth are developing properly and to guide parents in proper habits, hygiene, and diet.”

He also explains, “Starting young means that little tykes are permitted to sit on mommy’s or daddy’s lap during exams, not swimming in one of the big-boy chairs to help children overcome their fears of drills and needles, picks and probes. This will also encourage them to continue regular visits when they grow older, reducing their dental phobia.”

During the opening visit, Dr. Fox asks to complete a medical and personal history questionnaire for children. These questionnaires allow him to become more familiar as well as ensure that he understands the child’s important medical history. After that, Dr. Fox explains each step in a soothing voice for exactly what he’s about to do. He provides the parents with the information needed to care for their child’s smile. Using the information, parents can prevent costly dental work in the future by knowing what to do with their child’s diet and hygiene, as well as their own.

“Yes, I’m a pediatric dentist in Vista CA, but I’m also a motivator and entertainer. I try to motivate kids to take good care of their teeth and parents support them through entertainment,” adds Dr. Fox.
