Children’s Dentistry in Columbia

We know a lifetime of healthy teeth begins with good dental habits. Give your child a solid foundation by bringing them for an exam and cleaning twice each year. Encourage your child to listen to our Columbia children’s dental team during their visit. Work with your child at home to improve their dental hygiene routine.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has found that your child should visit the dentist within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by his or her first birthday. Early oral examination aids in the detection of the initial stages of tooth decay. Early detection is also essential to maintaining good oral health.

Columbia’s Best Children’s & Kid’s Dentist

During each visit, our Kid’s Dentist in Columbia, will gently clean your child’s teeth and remove any plaque or tartar. We will carefully examine their mouth and teeth for any potential issues. Regular cleanings and exams can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.

Tooth decay has become the most common chronic childhood illness in the U.S. Our dentist will teach you and your child how to properly brush and floss their teeth as they grow. We will discuss dental hygiene habits and healthy food choices. Columbia children’s dentist, Dr. Luo, will teach your child to be our partner in keeping their mouth and teeth healthy.

We may recommend treating your child’s teeth with fluoride. This mineral can strengthen tooth enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay. Fluoride may be applied in office or used in certain toothpastes and mouth rinses.

In some cases, we may recommend the use of dental sealants. Sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of molars. Recent studies have found that sealants can be highly effective in preventing tooth decay.

Dr. Esther Luo, DDS – Children’s & Kid’s Dentist

Dr. Kyle Lisenby

Dr. Esther Luo is passionate about dentistry because it enables her to have a direct and positive impact on patients’ lives by resolving their problems and restoring the quality of their life. She is especially interested in dentistry for kids!

Her goal is to ensure her patients are 100% satisfied and worry free when going home.

One thing she would like to tell all patients is that “if they seek help from me and take good care of their oral hygiene starting from today, they can maintain a good oral health throughout of their lives”.

When Dr. Luo is not in the office you can find her spending time with her husband, two children, and pets! Some of her favorite things to do are play board games, watch Korean TV Dramas, and watch Japanese animated TV series. An interesting fact about her is that she does not have a Facebook account!
