Your child’s first dental visit

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that a child’s first dental visit be scheduled by his/her 1st birthday. It is very important to make their first visit as positive and enjoyable as possible. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our friendly doctors and knowledgeable staff and be comfortable at all times. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future office visits. Let the child know that the doctors and staff will explain everything in detail and will answer any questions he/she has. Children should be encouraged to discuss any fears or anxiety they may be feeling.
