Your Child’s 1st Dental Visit

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dental Association, we recommend that a child’s first dental visit be scheduled by their 1st birthday. We always want you and your child to be comfortable and to enjoy getting to know our doctors and staff. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. Please communicate any concerns and expectations for the visit to our staff. We want to be accommodating and support you in any way that we can.

What to Expect for Your Child

We will record the child’s dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. 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. Tips for brushing baby’s teeth and gums, dietary counseling, and other growth and development assessments will be provided. Feel free to prepare a list of questions or concerns to bring with you, so that we may adequately address them. A parent or legal guardian must be present for the child’s first visit.
