Your Child’s First Visit
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit a dentist before they turn 1, or within 6 months of the appearance of the first baby tooth.
Bringing your child to the pediatric dentist at a very early age allows him or her to meet the dentist, and become comfortable in the dental office setting. Sometimes new places can make kids nervous and uncooperative, and that’s alright! We understand. We will be patient and take our time to develop a solid relationship. If your child ever needs a filling or extraction, we always avoid the words “hurt”, “shot”, “pull”, “needle”, and suggest you do too.
First visits usually include a gentle exam of teeth, jaw, bite, gums and oral tissues, a gentle cleaning, demonstration of proper home cleaning, fluoride treatment, and answering any questions you may have about your child’s oral health.
Your child’s first visit to the dentist can set the stage for a lifetime of good oral health. We offer an array of services that will grow with your children through the years and put them on the right path of a lifetime of good oral health.
