Your Child’s First Visit
“Children love us, Parents trust us.”
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit a dentist before they turn 1, or within six months of the appearance of the first baby tooth.
Bringing your child to the pediatric dentist early allows them to meet the dentist and become comfortable in the dental office. New places can sometimes make children nervous, and that’s alright! We understand. Our pediatric dentist and team will be patient and take the time to develop positive, trusting relationships with your child so that they can feel comfortable with us.
First visits usually include a gentle exam of teeth, jaw, bite, gums and oral tissues, as well as a gentle cleaning, demonstration of proper home cleaning, fluoride treatment and answering any questions you may have about your child’s oral health.
