With the broad experience of 16 years, Dr. Imneet not only takes care of your child's dental health but the overall well being with her tender loving approach. She is extremely versatile in adapting her chair-side manner to the age of the patient in order to make the dental experience pleasant and fear free. She super specializes in doing root canal therapies on baby teeth in order to keep the teeth with big cavities intact in the mouth until they fall out on their own.
Since primary teeth stay in the mouth until the age of 10-13 years, it makes it quite important to take good care of the same at both prevention and treatment levels.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
A Pediatric Dentist has a specialized training of extra 2-3 years after dental school and is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. They understand child psychology and thus use various behavior management or behavior modification methods to make dental treatment most comfortably acceptable to your child.
At what age should my child visit the dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child's first visit to the dentist should occur by 12 months of age.
How can I prevent decay caused by nursing?
- Avoid nursing children to sleep or putting anything other than water in their bed-time bottle. Also, learn the proper way to brush and floss your child's teeth.
- Take your child to a pediatric dentist regularly to have his/her teeth and gums checked.
What guidelines will help children remain cavity free?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends:
- Brush with a fluoride toothpaste twice a day, once in the morning after breakfast and at night before bed.
- Floss children's teeth once a day.
- Visit your pediatric dentist every 6 months.
- Get enough fluoride through drinking water and other fluoride products and fluoride supplements, if necessary.
- Snack moderately – no more than twice a day.
Why are "baby teeth" important?
The first tooth is usually lost around age 6 and the primary molars must remain in place until 10 to 12 years of age. Primary teeth are necessary for
- proper chewing
- development of the jaws and esthetics
- keep the space for the permanent teeth to erupt in the right place
Care of the primary teeth is important not only for proper function, but also to avoid a number of unpleasant conditions, such as pain, that result from their neglect.
How important is a child's diet in the prevention of cavities?
Although a well-balanced diet is important in preventing cavities and to ensure good general health, cavities are not only the result of what children eat but also the frequency of meals. Frequent snacking without brushing leaves food on the teeth longer and increases the likelihood of a cavity developing. Additionally, frequent "sipping" on sugar-drinks (including juice and soda) in a baby bottle, "sippy" cup, or re-sealable bottle can cause widespread dental cavities.
How often does my child need to see the pediatric dentist?
A check-up every six months is recommended in order to prevent cavities and other dental problems. However, Dr. Imneet can tell you when and how often your child should visit based on their personal oral health.
Dr. Imneet And Laser Dentistry
A Whole New World of Pain-free Dentistry for Kids
Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic makes oral health more fun for children
The very thought of dental masks, needles and cold instruments being prodded in the mouth could strike fear in anyone seeking dental appointment. When it comes to our little ones, this fear is much more exaggerated. As a result, your child may not be able to relax or sit still long enough to receive proper dental treatment.
At Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic, we understand that dental anxiety can be a stumbling block to ensuring your child’s oral health. That is why we make use of the best, most up-to-the-minute dental technologies available to put your child’s safety and comfort above all.
With the dawn of Lasers in Dentistry, the feeling of anxiety can now be well replaced with those of fun and excitement.
No shots. No drills. No fear.
Dr. Michael’s offers Waterlase, the most advanced technology in laser dentistry. It not only replaces the much-feared drill; it also eliminates the use of needles.
In the practice of our pediatric dentist Dr. Imneet Madan, our younger patients feel exceptionally comfortable. A lot of them describe their experience as nothing more than an occasional faint sensation of popping on the tooth.
"The laser can be related to the feeling of popcorn bursting. Some kids would say they imagine Star Wars-shooting at the bacteria," says Dr. Imneet.
This technology uses a unique, powerful interaction of air, water and laser energy that reduces the need for anesthesia (shots) when performing routine dental procedures. Unlike the much-dreaded dental drill, this laser does not require direct contact with the tooth surface. It works at pinpoint precision without heat, vibration or pressure.
No Pain. No Trauma.
The same technology is applicable to soft tissue procedures where the laser promises precise cutting, faster healing and no bleeding.
When it comes to saving severely decayed baby teeth, the use of the diode laser has been pioneered by Dr. Imneet. So far, the success rate of her laser-assisted root canal treatments comes close to 100 percent. She firmly believes in performing this procedure even on baby teeth that would otherwise be indicated for early extractions. Early loss of baby teeth could later on subject a child to more complex orthodontic procedures.
We recommend a dental check-up every six months for optimum oral health. With the best technology and providers in hand, we invite you and your child to come and visit Dr. Michael’s Children’s Dental Center.
What Patients Say
"My husband and I would like to say thank you for all your work and support for our son Zayaan Khan. We came from Abu Dhabi for his treatment as we had tried 3 dentists there and our son did not comply with any of them. My friend recommended Dr. Michaels Dental Clinic and we booked the appointment. Zayaan was very anxious but Dr. Imneet was so gentle and kind that Zayaan Khan relaxed and let her examine his teeth. He had to undergo some procedures under nitrous gas conscious sedation and also under General Anesthesia. The whole process was explained thoroughly, and all our anxiety was put to rest. We trusted Dr. Imneet and her team completely. My son now has 2 crowns and 2 fillings and feels comfortable to visit the dental clinic. Our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Imneet and her team. You have lifelong patient now." –Abdul and Sama Khan, Abu Dhabi
"On a short stop-over in Dubai three years ago, we took our daughter Lilian to Dr. Michael's in a state of panic as we noticed a few black spots on her teeth. Dr. Imneet told us that Lilian needed a root canal and several fillings. I can't tell you how upset I was at the thought of my six-year-old having to go through a root canal, especially in a clinic that I had visited for the first time. Dr. Imneet somehow managed to fit us in, the root canal was completed in just one appointment and the fillings in the next. Lilian experienced no pain at all as the treatment was done with laser. When back in UK we took Lilian's X-rays and reports to her own dentist so that she would have the history. She looked at the X-rays of the root canal and commented on how well the job was done."
"Dr. Imneet was very patient and kind. She was very communicative and would explain at every stage what she was about to do. This made Lilian feel very comfortable and not frightened."
"Although we live in Cairo, three & half hours flight from Dubai, we have decided for our twin daughters to be patients of Dr. Michael's under the care of Dr. Imneet."
"We love Dr. Imneet and would follow her across the world!" –Lilian’s Mom (Egypt)
"A huge thank you to Dr. Imneet for Yooree’s treatment! I used to be afraid of taking my daughter to the dentist before I met Dr. Imneet. But with her love and kind care, all the procedure has gone well and now I feel comfortable to take her to see Dr. Imneet. The three hours of treatment under General Anesthesia must be a huge thing to Yooree, but it was worth it, because she could have her treatment without having any trauma and it was totally safer than I had thought. Thank you once again Dr. Imneet." –Annie (Yooree’s Han’s mother)
"Dr. Imneet is absolutely amazing with children. I would not take my children Laith and Lara to any other dentist." –Hala Al Khudairi, Dubai
"We are so happy that we found you! After quite a few traumatic experiences in the world of pediatric dentistry in Dubai, finally we find a dentist who was caring and considerate and totally professional in your approach to my two boys. My younger son had a real fear of the dentist chair and you have helped him to overcome and conquer his fear. Talking to him, explaining the procedure and just being gentle and caring. It all pays off and we are very thankful for all of your special attention, especially with Conor." –Mrs. Patricia Air
"Thank you so very much for all your support and patience with our daughter. She came to you after a very negative experience, refusing to enter your rooms and now she is 10 yrs. old, asking to go to the dentist for checkup, what a turnaround! The way you explained the process, what’s the next steps were and what she could expect has paid such dividend, I couldn’t have dreamed this possible." –Mrs. O'Reilly, Mom of Erin
"After almost 3 years with Dr. Imneet my girls are comfortable and look forward to their visits. Dr. Imneet's kind, encouraging and friendly attitude is refreshing and keeps us loyal to the clinic. She is up to date on the latest in pediatric dentistry and her staff, like her, friendly and professional. Many thanks, Jessie" –Jessie Theorin, Dubai
"It's always nice to see someone who really has a nice heart. My son Shuta has been with Dr. Imneet for 8 years, since he broke one of his front teeth by accident. Even Shuta couldn't cooperate with the procedures, Dr. Imneet gave him smile and kindness with unbelievable patience. The new children clinic, bright and clean environment deserves her a lot. Millions of thanks to you, Dr. Imneet! and your nurse." –Atsuko Minagi

Right from start Dr. Imneet has been helpful and supportive from viewing picture of his teeth her days off to replacing his cap after the first cap came off. My son has always been relaxed when visiting Dr. Imneet and all my children visit her.

Thank you for your professional attention, for always doing the best you can for her, and most of all for caring so much for Constantina. Wishing you and your family all the best." –Rana Vouyouka
