The prospect of your child’s first visit with a new dentist (or their first dental appointment ever) can feel intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. You can work closely with your child’s providers to make sure that the session goes as smoothly as possible.
It is easiest for everyone when both the parent and child know what to expect. We’ll give you an overview below, but if you have any specific questions/concerns, feel free to call our office and speak to one of our friendly staff members.
We recognize the importance of your child’s first dental visit, and we want to do everything possible to make it a positive experience that anchors a lifetime of good oral health habits. Please let us know about any specific special needs that your child may have so that we can accommodate them.
What will happen at my child’s first dental exam?
We dedicate a great deal of energy and attention to make sure that our families feel welcome at our office, and that begins when you enter the door. We encourage parents to join their children in the treatment room, especially when children are two years old or younger.
