Many people experience fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist, and this can be especially true for children. At our practice, we want both children and their parents to have a positive dental experience right from the start. To do this, we want you to become familiar with what you can expect during your child’s first dental visit. Your child’s first visit will include:

  • Reviewing your child’s dental and medical health forms.
  • Taking X-rays of your little one’s teeth and mouth to check for any cavities or too see if teeth are coming in at the average rate.
  • Consulting with our dentist and reviewing X-rays to create a treatment plan. We will also address any concerns or questions you may have.

When your child returns to our office, our friendly and gentle hygienists will clean and polish their teeth and check for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gum problems. We feel that getting into the habit of regular visits to the dentist start with a child’s first visit. We look forward to having your child visit our dentist. For more information, we welcome you to call or visit us today.
