Child’s First Visit

At your child’s first visit, we will introduce him or her to the dental environment in a fun and positive way. We thoroughly review your child’s medical history, home oral health care, diet, and history of any previous dental treatment. The dentist will exam your child’s teeth by either having them sit in the chair or the knee-to-knee method.

Based on our clinical exam and your child’s age, the dentist may also take x-rays. It is important in children’s teeth to diagnose cavities as early as possible to prevent infection or complications with the development of permanent teeth. We feel it is important to take time to educate parents/guardians with oral health information to help your child develop a healthy, beautiful smile!
