pediatric dentistry

Patients of all ages are welcome at New Tampa Family Dental, and our experts always look forward to serving younger patients. We know how important it is to provide children and teens with positive dental foundations that will last for the rest of their lives, and our team is fully up to the task. Whether your young one is making their first dental visit or adulthood is right around the corner, the oral care specialists at New Tampa Family Dental are ready to help your child achieve great-looking teeth and a beautiful smile.

The First Visit

We understand that a child’s first dental visit is a very important milestone. This initial visit represents the first chance we will have to examine the development of your child’s first teeth and the health of their gums. Parents should schedule their child’s first dental visit sometime after their first tooth emerges and before their child’s first birthday. By scheduling a visit at this early age, we provide your child with a feeling of comfort and trust that will carry over to future visits.

We use this opportunity to make sure that everything is growing as it should, while also keeping a keen eye out for any signs of tooth decay. During the visit, parents are encouraged to ask questions and address any concerns they might have about their child’s oral care practices. Our experts also like to take the time to provide parents with helpful information regarding teething, cavity prevention, brushing and flossing techniques, thumb sucking and more.

Preventive Treatments

Certain proactive preventive treatments can mean less need for extensive dental treatments throughout their lives. Some of the most common preventive dental treatments that are available for children include dental sealants, space maintainers, mouth guards and fluoride applications.


We consider dental restorations for young patients to be extremely important. Our team will work to correct the appearance and function of your child’s teeth so that they have the confidence they need to face the world. Whether your child needs a filling, a crown or veneers, their teeth are in the best possible hands at New Tampa Family Dental.

Fluoride Applications

As your child continues to develop their brushing and flossing practices, supplemental fluoride applications can go a long way towards protecting their teeth. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has been proven to be highly effective in strengthening tooth enamel and preventing tooth decay. Fluoride applications are remarkably quick and easy, and they can be completed alongside a regular dental checkup.

Schedule your child’s next dental visit at New Tampa Family Dental. Please call our office at (813) 333-5277 to set up an appointment for your child.

    Sure wish I had found them earlier!! I had a periodontist that did gum surgery on me for 13,000.00; I had to wait for my gums to heal a few months and because that Periodontist would not work with my previous dentist I had to find a new dentist for the tooth part after the implant. I went in to interview Dr. Krause (dentist) & found the office and staff exceptional AND I got a quote for the implants at HALF the cost from his partner Dr. Taylor (periodontist)!! I can only imagine how much money I would have saved on the initial surgery, I feel violated by the first periodontist. I had the implants yesterday and painless with the exception of the numbing shots initially and no pain today. Affordable Quality Care!

    "I've always gotten the best service from Dr Schweizer, everyone at the office is very knowledgeable and professional, all the staff is very friendly. Since moving down to Florida, Dr Schweizer has been the only dentist I've had, which has been about 30 years. I don't think I would feel comfortable seeing any one else."
