It’s the beginning of August, and we know what that means – back to school is coming up fast! Among all the hustle and bustle of gathering your kids’ school supplies, getting new clothes, and the 101 other things you have to do, don’t forget your back-to-school dental exams at Jahyun Koo DDS! We’ll get your kids’ smiles looking and feeling great before school starts back. And if they need any procedures, there’s still time to fit them in.

Call our Seattle dentist office at 206-922-4573 to schedule visits with Dr. Koo. We see entire families!

Dental Exams & Cleanings Keep Mouths Healthy

Our practice motto is “Healthy foundation. Healthy teeth.” That’s why we provide Seattle area residents with outstanding preventive dental care. This includes dental cleanings and exams. Adults and children always leave their appointments with better smiles than when they came in.

When your kids visit us twice a year for dental checkups, we’ll start by getting X-rays of their teeth. This will help us identify any problems or areas we need to watch for. Then we will clean their teeth and gums thoroughly.

Kids aren’t the best at brushing and flossing, which explains why about half of kids 11 and under have had at least one cavity. And about half of those kids’ cavities remain untreated, which can later lead to root canals or extractions. So it’s important to make sure all the buildup on their teeth and between their teeth is removed, which only a dental professional can do.

If necessary, we might recommend other treatments to help your kids stay cavity-free. That could include sealants or a professional fluoride treatment in our office. We can also show them the best ways to brush and floss if they’re having trouble or just need a little guidance.

Our dentist will check all their teeth for problems as well. Dr. Koo will also ensure tooth and jaw development look good. If we notice that your child could benefit from braces or wisdom tooth removal, we will let you know. For older teens, we offer Invisalign. We can also handle many wisdom teeth extractions in house.

Tooth-Colored Fillings Won’t Mark Your Child’s Smile

Kids don’t want to draw unwanted attention to themselves. (Neither do we adults, for that matter!) If we find that your kid needs a filling during their exam, we offer tooth-colored fillings that blend in. There won’t be any dark spots that stick out in their smiles. Plus, these fillings preserve more of their tooth than the old metal fillings do.

We Make Dental Visits Convenient

Whether your kids come in before the school year starts back or can’t make it until after, our hours are convenient to serve your family. On Tuesdays, we’re open at 7:30 a.m. Unlike many dentists in Seattle, you can even schedule Friday and Saturday appointments.

Jahyun Koo DDS also accepts several forms of payment:

  • Many major insurances
  • Cash
  • Personal checks
  • Credit cards
  • CareCredit
  • In-house savings program

We’re also convenient to many area schools.

Beat the back-to-school rush! Schedule your family’s dental exams at our Seattle dentist office by calling 206-922-4573 or filling out our online form.
