First Visit

Your child’s first exposure to the dentist can shape their entire outlook on dental care for the rest of their life. At Dr. Bender’s office, we work to provide your child with an enjoyable, friendly environment in order to help them realize the importance of oral health at a young age.

Dr. Fara Bender’s office is a family centered practice with a goal to treat you and your child with dignity and respect. We recognize that visiting our offices may be your child’s first exposure to the dentist. We know that transparency on our part can help to ease any potential nerves your child might have. The AAPD recommends a child’s first visit 6 months after the eruption of the first tooth OR on the child’s first birthday, whichever comes sooner. In light of that, we would like to give you insight into what you and your child can expect for your first visit. (more…)

Dental Exams & Cleanings

Routine dental visits can help us to identify and treat potential dental problems before they become serious–including cavities and tooth decay. 

One of the most fundamental elements of pediatric dentistry is frequent dental attention. While at-home methods such as brushing and flossing are beneficial ways to preserve the oral health of your child, they require the attention of their dentist on a regular basis.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry officially recommends that you schedule a check-up appointment for your child twice a year. When you and your child attend these biannual appointments with a pediatric dentist, we will be able to identify potential developments of oral problems, monitor the proper growth of your child’s teeth, and provide routine oral healthcare.

Dental Radiographs

This type of dental radiology is especially designed to be safe for young patients like your children and to minimize radiation exposure as much as possible. We can examine the internal health of your child’s mouth and plan for future growth and development.

In the medical and dental fields, there are many elements to the practice that can both help and hurt the patient. One medical tool that has received a great deal of scrutiny yet remains one of the most helpful technologies available is that of radiological imaging. In pediatric dentistry, x-ray imaging shows us what lies beneath your child’s exterior teeth in order to plan for treatment and growth.

As your Lake Worth dentistry office, our priority is the health and safety of our little patients. Therefore, we only utilize the latest in digital dental radiographs in order to protect your child from the harmful effects of excessive radiation. (more…)


Non-invasive preventative treatment to protect the chewing surfaces and minimize the risk of dental decay. Our sealants are BPA free.

As a parent, you know the difficulties involved with trying to motivate your child to brush and floss properly. No matter how hard you may try, decay can develop within your child’s teeth. Fortunately, there is a method to treat and seal tooth decay before it spreads and becomes more serious. (more…)

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry can be used for children who are especially sensitive to pain or who already have dental phobia.

At Dr. Bender’s office, we understand that even the most brave and well-behaved children often have moments of weakness, fear, and anxiety. With sedation dentistry for children at Dr. Bender’s office, your child need not fear nor experience pain. We have a Board Certified Pediatric Anesthesiologist to help treat very young children who lack the ability to cooperate with some dental treatments. All treatments are completed in one visit in most cases and done in our office. (more…)

Accidents happen…especially when children are involved. Here at Dr. Bender’s office, we understand that emergency dental care is often needed to treat urgent and serious injuries. If your child has suffered from a dental injury, we can provide emergency dental care. (more…)
