Your Federal Way dentist, Dr. Paul Kim recommends that brushing begin as early as six months, (or as soon as your child’s first tooth appears) and that they should see a dentist before their first birthday.
That may sound young, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your child’s oral health. More than 40% of kindergarten-age children suffer from tooth decay. It’s even more common than asthma or hay fever. In fact, despite being largely preventable, tooth decay is one of the most widespread chronic childhood diseases in America, and is the number 1 cause for missed time from school.
Healthy primary teeth or baby teeth is vital for proper chewing and establishing proper alignment of the adult teeth coming in correctly.
Early loss of primary/baby teeth due to decay and infection will compromise your child's bite, alignment, and formation of their adult teeth. In addition it is never too early to have your child get familiar and comfortable visiting our Federal Way dental office.
Not sure how to care for your child’s teeth? Stop by our office and ask. We’re happy to help guide you on the day-to-day care for their age. Introducing them to proper oral health early will help them form good habits, get them accustomed to daily oral care and regular dental visits, and give them a healthier smile that will last a lifetime.
Our Patients Love Us!
Dr. Kim and his assistant were extremely kind and caring during my 87 year old mother's appointment today. Most importantly Dr. Kim thoroughly went over her X-ray, and laid out her options along with his honest recommendation.
I was very pleased with the service. I have been going to Ace Dental since I left the Army. I like that each visit I leave with a bag-o-stuff that includes a new toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, and floss!
All staff are so friendly and made me confortable. I love this dentist. in fact, i have been gone 3 dentist but other dentist said add a lot of thing, so I ask the Dr, but he said I'm young, so I dont need that.
Dr. Kim and his assistant Paula are great. Very friendly and accommodating, they were able to get me into an appointment right away. I had surgery with Dr. Kim, and everything went as smoothly as it could.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Not sure how you do it but the dental billing/insurance process is painless. Always confident in the work being done on my teeth and clearly understand what procedures are being performed.
I had an old crown which was repeatedly leaking even though I had paid multiple visits to my old dentist in Auburn. I was kinda afraid that my tooth condition was getting worse and affect adjacent teeth. After moving down to Federal Way, I found Dr. Paul Kim, and I finally got my crown fixed! Thank you! Dr. Kim!
