Dental Arts of Darien is a family dental practice and Dr. Pereira provides a full range of dental services for patients of all ages. Disease prevention and oral health maintenance is the foundation of our practice and we strive to provide personalized, patient focused dental care for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Family dentistry is beneficial for today’s busy parents and caregivers, providing the opportunity for all members of the family to maintain, restore and/or enhance their oral health in one convenient location.
Pediatric Dentistry Darien
Dr. Pereira and his staff welcome young dental patients and make every effort to ensure they feel comfortable, relaxed and understand their dental treatment. Dental Arts of Darien offers a warm, friendly environment and has incorporated modern dental technology to improve the patient experience.
We recommend that parents or caregivers bring their children in for their first dental check up around the age of 3, when most primary teeth have erupted. This first visit provides your child the opportunity to tour our office, meet the staff and learn about the benefits of a clean and healthy smile. We will take the time to demonstrate proper brushing techniques and talk about how a nutritious diet will keep their teeth strong and reduce the risk of a cavity.
Why Are Primary Teeth Important?
Your child’s primary teeth play an important role in their development in several ways:
- Primary teeth are the placeholders for your child’s permanent teeth: a lost baby tooth can affect the alignment of a permanent tooth
- Primary teeth affect speech development
- Healthy primary teeth allow proper chewing and enable a varied, nutritious diet

Tooth decay remains a leading childhood disease, one which is preventable with routine dental care. Regular visits to our dental office enables Dr. Pereira and his team to spot the early signs of decay and disease before more complex problems develop. Visiting the dentist regularly also lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy oral hygiene habits.
