Age 1 Dental Visit

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that your child visit the dentist by his/her first birthday.

We understand that your child might be scared of going to the dentist. Our goal is to keep your child’s teeth healthy while making them feel comfortable and relaxed.

We want your child to enjoy getting to know our doctors and staff and have a positive experience. A happy first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. Let your child know that the doctors and staff will explain everything in detail and will answer any questions he/she has. Encourage them to share any fears with us. Parents should not make a big deal out of the visit and refrain from using any words that could cause unnecessary fear. We are experienced in dealing with children with anxiety, and can explain treatment procedures in a positive way to avoid any negative feelings toward dentistry.

In this visit, we will record the child’s dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. Preventative health is achieved by the whole family working together. We encourage parents to be engaged in the treatment process and accompany your child as needed. We will review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!

Complimentary First Exam

During this complimentary initial examination we will address any questions that you may have, and encourage you to ask questions as well. Here are some of the more common questions that we receive, and will be sure to address for you:

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now, or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  •  Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  •  How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

We’d love to show you how we can help you achieve optimal dental health and the smile of your dreams. Please contact us at our office to schedule an appointment.
