Broomfield Pediatric and Cosmetic Dentistry

At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry in Lafayette, we promote preventative dental care by developing decay prevention plans and helping our patients establish and maintain proper dental practices. If today’s Lafayette kids can avoid tooth decay, they can save themselves more than you may realize.

1) A healthy mouth equals better overall health and well-being.
Maintaining optimum oral health puts Boulder children at a lower risk for diabetes and heart disease.

2) A beautiful, healthy smile boost confidence and self-esteem for Lafayette children.

3) By keeping teeth and gums healthy, Lafayette children can save thousands on restorative dental work as adults.

4) Strong teeth help kids get proper nutrition. Tooth decay makes eating difficult.

5) Proper dental hygiene beginning at birth and twice-yearly exams commencing at age 2 promote normal speech development. (The American Dental Association recommends toddler dental visits to begin at age 2.)
