We welcome children to our practice, with the goal of making their experience with us a pleasant one. With as little as one trip, you can start your journey toward a happier, healthier smile.
At our first appointment we will examine your child's teeth and gums and take any necessary x-rays (usually none if an infant). We will also do a prophy or toothbrush prophy cleaning to remove plaque from their teeth and gums, and will show you how as well. Parents play an important role in getting children started with a good attitude toward dental care. One of the useful things that you can do to help is to be completely natural and easygoing when you tell your child about their appointment. Be positive. This approach enables children to view their dental visit as an enjoyable opportunity to stay healthy.
Your cooperation is appreciated. Remember, good general health depends partly on the development of good habits, such as sensible eating, sleeping routines, and exercise. Dental health also depends on good habits, such as proper brushing, regular dental visits, and good diet.
