Our practice is dedicated to providing the highest possible quality of care.
Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your could visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.
Your Child's First Visit
Prepare for your child's first visit by taking a positive approach. For very young children there are excellent children's stories, which describe a visit to the dentist. Convey good feelings about dental visits being part of growing up. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as "needle", "shot", "pull", "drill" or "hurt". The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child. You will be allowed to be with your child during the initial examination. We ask, however, that you remain a silent partner since it is difficult for a child to pay attention to more than one person at a time. Please understand that crying is a normal reaction for young children.
