First Visit

Your first visit is all about your child – their comfort, happiness, and health.

During your child’s first visit, we will:

  • Review dental and medical history forms
  • Take X-rays of their teeth and mouth
  • Clean and polish your child’s teeth, checking teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis

After the checkup and teeth cleaning are complete, the doctor will meet with you and your child to discuss X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children should visit their pediatric dentist when their first tooth comes in, usually between 6 and 12 months of age. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child’s smile now and in the future.

The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

We understand that your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember that an appointment can last between 20 to 40 minutes.
