Along with the American Academics of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that a child’s first visit be scheduled by the age of one. During your first visit, we will help you get acquainted with our office. We have carefully designed it to be a child-friendly, comfortable and fun environment. We complete our dental examination in an age-appropriate manner and work closely with children to gain their trust. We encourage parents to stay with their child throughout treatment and welcome your input on how the visit your child will do their best during the visit.
Before you come, parents should try to help their children not be anxious about the first visit and refrain from using any words that could cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle” or “drill.” We are experienced in dealing with children with anxiety and can explain treatment procedures in a positive and pleasant manner to avoid any anxious or negative feelings toward dentistry.
We will record your child’s dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. We will review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program routine, including dietary and oral hygiene modifications with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
