We understand that healthy teeth and gums are essential for your child’s development. We provide children the best dental care available with the highest standards of professionalism.
We are also parents who understand that a child’s relationship with a kind and caring dental team sets the tone for both present and future interactions with dental professionals. Establishing positive feelings about dental care helps your child develop good dental habits that will last a lifetime.
Our highly skilled, friendly team of dentist and support team provides both basic and advanced children’s dental care in a comfortable, safe environment, with the latest technologies in dental treatment. Let us help you keep the beautiful smile that is the reflection of a happy and healthy child.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
At you first visit, we will review your child’s health history and answer any immediate questions you may have. The dentist will perform a simple head and neck exam, and then evaluate the health of your child’s teeth, gums, and bite. We will also discuss the daily routine of brushing and flossing and will give you a cavity prevention kit to use at home.
Fluoride varnish may be applied and digital x-rays may be taken depending on your child’s age and the results of the exam. If your child is very young, we may do little more than a short exam with the simple goal of exposing your child to this new environment; the sights, sounds, and smells of a dental office.
Before this first visit, we encourage you to talk to your child about going to the dentist in a positive manner. Practice counting teeth at home and reading children’s books about going to the dentist. A great resource book is “Show me your smile: A visit to the dentist (Dora the Explorer)” by Chistine Ricci.
Here are some additional suggestions:
Schedule your appointment in the morning or after nap-time
Bring along a favorite toy
Bring a camera for a photo of your little one’s first visit to the dentist
Let your own fears of the dentist rub off on your own child
Schedule immunizations on the same day as a trip to the dentist
Tell your child not to cry or punish them if they do
