Kids Actually Want to See their Beloved Dr. Ben Liu and His Top-Notch Pediatric Team
Say these words aloud: “Stress-free dental experience for children.” Now say them again so they sink in. This seemingly magical fantasy is actually reality at SuperKids Pediatric Dentistry, according to real-life patients and their parents. Dr. Ben Liu has established a practice dedicated to providing sophisticated, high-technology dental care for patients from newborn to age 18 in a beautiful, comforting atmosphere with gentle, respectful care. Each of Dr. Liu’s offices—in Sterling, Alexandria, Rockville and Potomac—adhere to his high standards of trust and expertise.
“From the minute my well-trained staff and I welcome you into our office, you’ll know we consider all our patients to be family,” says Dr. Liu, whose practice includes several other dentists in addition to dental assistants and office staff.
Dr. Liu recommends bringing a child in for their first dental visit no later than their first birthday.
“We will gently examine the child’s teeth and gums,” he says. “We may clean the child’s teeth and apply topical fluoride, and we will make sure the child is receiving adequate fluoride at home. And, most importantly, we will review with parents how to clean and care for their child’s teeth.”
From the time a baby’s first tooth emerges from their gums through age 18, a person’s dental needs will certainly evolve. Everything from the proper amount of toothpaste and the correct size and shape of the toothbrush to the best method of brushing and flossing should change as a child grows. Dr. Liu and his staff take time to explain these important nuances to each patient and/or their parents. They also help to break harmful dental habits, including thumb-sucking, and are happy to accommodate special-needs patients with private treatment rooms, a highly trained staff employing behavioral management techniques and more.
Each SuperKids office features gleaming, bright decor with an open-concept floor plan. The waiting areas include countertop seating with plenty of outlets for patients’ devices and a large TV showing kid-friendly movies. Pops of color and gatherings of toys and stuffed animals bring smiles and help to ease the tension in little ones for whom these perks are more important than the fact that Dr. Liu uses the most advanced dental tools and practices.
Dr. Liu offers several options for pain control and sedation, particularly for patients whose anxiety may cause them to actually pose harm to their own safety during a dental procedure. In these cases, and every case, Dr. Liu and his team regularly discuss each option with parents, to ensure the best experience and outcome for each patient.
Parents say their kids don’t mind going to the dentist at all, as long as that dentist is SuperKids Pediatric Dentistry.
