When & What Is My Child’s First “Regular” Visit?
The first “regular” dental visit should be no later than your child’s first birthday, as recommended by American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
We will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. If indicated, X-rays may be taken to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums. We may clean your child’s teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. We will make sure your child is receiving adequate fluoride at home, review trauma and accident prevention methods and discuss healthy diets. Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.
We will attempt to make your child’s first visit to the dentist as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We acknowledge that every child is different and presents with unique sensitivities, fears and anxieties. We strive to eliminate any external fears and pride ourselves in helping each patient learn how easy and fun it can be to visit a pediatric dentist.
If your child has any medical conditions or challenging behaviors, we encourage you to share these concerns with our Team when scheduling and prior to arriving so we can properly prepare our environment to the best of our ability for your child.
In order to improve the chances of your child having a positive experience, we are selective with our use of words. Please support us by NOT USING negative words. We commonly say “NO 4 LETTER WORDS ARE ALLOWED.” Examples of these are shot, hurt, pain etc. These words dramatically decrease our chance of a successful appointment.
Regardless of your child’s age, we will cater our treatment towards your child. We treat each and every patient as if they were our own. We cannot wait to meet you and your child at your first visit!
