Your Child's New Dental Home
Empathy, understanding, compassion, and communication – these are the pillars of our dental practice, where Dr. Yang has created a dental home for children in Rancho Peñasquitos. Dr. Yang is proud to offer dental care in a multilingual office.
Whether your child speaks or understands English, Spanish, or Mandarin, Dr. Yang is helping break down language barriers so little ones can understand what is going on through the dental process. This is key to them feeling safe, trusting their dentist, and reducing dental anxiety.
Dental care doesn’t need to be boring, scary, or mysterious. Dr. Yang makes has spent years creating a welcoming and fun dental environment, where all of her patients can feel at home. Seeing a pediatric dentist is important during your little one’s early life because only a pediatric dentist can provide your child with the level of expertise, experience, and training that is needed to provide high-quality care.
Pediatric dentists are experts in children’s oral health care because we undergo additional years of schooling and training than general dentists to specialize in pediatric dental care. We emphasize a conservative approach to dentistry which means that Dr. Yang focuses on preserving your child’s oral health through prevention and using minimally invasive treatments to avoid unnecessary extractions and invasive restorative treatment.
Prevention is the best tool we have in the dental field. Through periodic checkups and cleanings, we prevent plaque and tartar from building up in the mouth which reduces your child’s risk of cavities, infections, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Early detection ensures we catch any oral health problems early on. We also offer treatments that offer additional cavity protection such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which are useful tools for children with a high risk of cavities.
If your child has special needs, you don’t want to go to just any dentist in Rancho Peñasquitos. Children with special needs may have certain cognitive or physical disabilities, dental anxiety, or sensory disorders.
As a board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Yang is specially trained in how to treat patients with special needs. We offer dental sedation in the form of laughing gas and IV sedation to reduce anxiety and increase comfort and cooperation in our patients with special needs.
We are proud to provide open and honest communication with your child so we can determine what accommodations they need to feel more comfortable during their appointment.
This may include administering dental sedation, dimming lights, giving your child a longer appointment, reducing background sounds, or providing them with distractions. If your child has a tongue or lip tie, it’s important to see a pediatric dentist for a frenectomy to prevent future oral development, feeding, and speech problems.
Whether your child has a small cavity, an infection, or is experiencing a dental emergency, Dr. Yang offers minimally invasive restorative treatment to prevent worsening complications and restore their teeth and gums to health.
If your child is experiencing an emergency, we offer same-day appointments. Fillings, pulpotomies, or stainless steel crowns may be needed to treat tooth decay and infections. We do everything we can to prevent the need for an extraction.
