First Visit

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that a child’s first dental visit be scheduled by his/her 1st birthday. It is very important to make the first visit as positive and enjoyable for the child as possible. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our doctors and staff and be comfortable at all times. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. Let the child know that the doctors and staff will explain everything in detail and will answer any questions he/she has. Children should be encouraged to discuss any fears or anxiety they feel.

Parents should not make a big deal out of the visit and refrain from using any words that could cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle” or “drill.” We are experienced in dealing with children and their anxiety . We will explain treatment procedures in a positive and pleasant manner to avoid any anxious or negative feelings toward dentistry.

Your child’s first visit in our office will include a complete medical history review along with a through dental exam. The exam will include an evaluation of the teeth and gums, a head and neck assessment, and a preliminary orthodontic evaluation. We will determine if any X-rays are needed and if a cleaning and fluoride treatment should be done. Your visit will conclude with a detailed review of our findings. If treatment is necessary we will design a treatment plan to fit your time and budget concerns. We will also review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
