At Smile Studio located in Orem, Utah, Dr. Chad Ellis and our team know how important dental checkups are to your child’s health. That is why we recommend bringing in your child every six months to rule out any undiagnosed oral conditions such as a painful tooth or other chronic dental problems.

Did you know that children with chronic dental pain may not always tell their parents that something is wrong? Often this is because they don’t know what is happening, and sometimes the only sign that your child is suffering might be that your child appears anxious, depressed or unusually tired.

Untreated dental conditions can lead to difficulty eating, speaking and concentrating, and may result in your child missing school. To assess your child’s oral health, Dr. Chad Ellis will evaluate the following:

— Your child’s eating habits.

— How well your child’s teeth are maintained.

— Any past treatment your child has received and what their current needs are.

— Whether your child drinks fluoridated water.

— Any factors that may indicate susceptibility to oral diseases.

Dr. Chad Ellis and our team will examine your child’s smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases, and using dental X-rays to further evaluate your child’s smile, will make sure your child receives the dental care they need.

If your child hasn’t had a dental checkup recently, please call Smile Studio in Orem and Provo, Utah, at 801-225-5594 today. Dr. Chad Ellis and our team of dental professionals are happy to help your child prepare for a healthy, successful school year!
