When should I bring my child in for the first visit?
Managing your child’s oral health care from an early age sets the stage for great dental health that lasts a lifetime. We generally recommend that you bring your child in to see us around age three.
Monitoring their oral health is important, but the first few visits are meant to help your child get used to the idea of seeing the dentist. The last thing we want to do is try to perform any treatment before they feel completely safe and secure with us.
Your Child's First Visit
We’ll take the time to introduce your child gradually to all the new sights and sounds of a dental office. During these “happy visits,” we’ll show your child the fun side of dentistry – we count their teeth and even let them take a ride in the dental chair.
The idea of your child’s first visit can be a bit overwhelming for both of you. But we assure you that our team always makes it a point to treat children with kindness and respect for their unique needs. Once we know your child is completely comfortable with us, we can start to perform any necessary treatments like cleanings, fillings, and fluoride application.
