Conveniently located in Red Bluff, CA, Dr. van Opojnen, provides dental care for the entire family. Dr. van Opojnen is a California licensed dentist, trained in the oral health of children, including children with special needs, from infancy through adolescence.
We provide the comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care needs of children (infants through teenagers), including those with special needs (chronically ill, disabled or mentally challenged).
The American Dental Association now recommends that children visit a dentist no later than his or her first birthday. With this proactive approach, your child’s teeth and gums are assessed for any possible problems. You and your child’s dentist should review important information about diet, bottles, tooth brushing and fluoride use. Visiting the dentist from a young age will help your child become comfortable with his or her dentist. It also establishes the good habit of regular dental check-ups.
Parents are encouraged to accompany their child during visits allowing us to work together in creating a comfortable experience for your child while providing their dental care.
