Children – pediatric dentistry in Satigny

des enfants jouent avec la médecin

« Every man hides within himself a child who wants to play » - F. Nietzsche

Children are not little adults. They deserve care adapted to their needs. Their world is spectacular, and we try to understand it. We've developed a way of working that won't make your children fear dental care.

Why is good dentalcare important in kids?

An early start provides lifelong benefits: scientific studies show that preventing problems in the baby teeth has a protective effect on the permanent dentition. Pediatric dentistry therefore focuses on early prevention and education, helping children (and their parents) to acquire good dental habits. (and their parents) to acquire good oral hygiene habits right from the start. This paves the way for a lifetime of healthy mouths.


In-office preventive measures include regular check-ups, cleanings and fluoride treatments, and sometimes the grooves in the middle of the molars need to be sealed. The aim is always to stop dental problems before they become serious.  This is good for the child, who is less stressed, and for the parents, who save time and money.

If, despite your best efforts and ours, treatment becomes necessary, it's no tragedy. Our team is specially trained to understand and respond to children's specific needs. We create a comfortable and fun atmosphere, reducing the anxiety and fear associated with dental visits. This is why, although well-intentioned, we recommend that you, as parents, do not "prepare" your child for a dental visit any more than necessary. This can often trigger fears that can make treatment more difficult than necessary.

What else can child dentistry offer?

An important part of children's dental care is monitoring the growth and position of their teeth. Permanent teeth often don't have enough room to fit harmoniously into the dental arch. This can lead to chewing difficulties and aesthetic problems. Sometimes, jaw growth is also disturbed, i.e. the jaws grow inharmoniously or in the wrong direction. In such cases, and to take advantage of the child's natural growth, a specialist ("orthodontist") should be called in to guide the growth of the jaws in the right direction and correct the position of the teeth as quickly as possible.

Dr. Wolfgang Johannes is the "space explorer" and solves any growth problems and issues with crowded teeth.

The main aim is to help children enjoy a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles, boosting their self-confidence and general well-being.

Dr. Johana Taieb will adapt to each of your children to provide optimal care, with a great deal of patience and experience!
