First Dental Visit
We Can’t Wait to Meet You
Every child is unique, so we custom tailor every child’s first dentist appointment to their age and level of understanding. No one knows your child better than you do, so plan to have an open conversation with the dentist about dental history, hygiene habits, and more to help us get to know your child and their individual needs. You can expect positive and encouraging attitudes to help you and your child feel comfortable, welcome, and even excited about coming to the dentist!
What To Expect at My Child’s First Dental Appointment
You will enter an uncluttered, clean, cozy atmosphere and be greeted with happy enthusiasm. You and your child will be escorted to the clinical area, and you will first notice that every room is an individual treatment room. This lends privacy but also a place for parents to sit and, most notably in the age of COVID, gives you peace of mind that you are in a clean space prepared only for you without cross contamination of open space.
When Is the Best Time to Take Your Child to The Dentist?
Taking your child to the dentist for the first time is an essential milestone in your child’s development. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child visit the dentist when the first tooth erupts or at 12 months of age, whichever comes first. Seeing a pediatric dentist is important since it helps them develop healthy habits in oral hygiene, builds a foundation for proper oral health care, and you learn about nutritional information that is helpful for newly erupted teeth.
