Anthony C. Sturniolo, DDS


General Family Dentistry


Children's Dentistry
Dr. Sturniolo strongly encourages parents to schedule their child's first dental visit by age 3. At this time all the primary teeth have erupted and a dental exam should be performed to detect any tooth decay, gum problems, and to evaluate any problems with the bite.

Every child is different ; some are only willing to "take a ride in the chair", while others are happy to let us clean their teeth. Our goal is to make their visit a positive one as this can affect their attitude toward dentistry well into their adult years. We often will recommend a Fluoride rinse to prevent decay.

Also, dental sealants ( see our video section ) are often advised to prevent decay in the permanent molars which have deep pits and grooves, often the starting point of chewing surface cavities.
