Bringing your child to the dentist for the first time can be a bit stressful, but we strive to make this experience pleasant for all parties involved!
Our goal is to make a trip to the dentist a good, productive experience without being scary for your little ones. At your child’s first visit, we will examine the teeth, gums, tongue, lips, and roof of the mouth. Depending upon your child’s age, number of teeth present, and ability to cooperate, we may order x-rays to determine the normal development of permanent teeth and to check for cavities. We may also clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride. We do recommend regular dental cleanings for our younger patients, in accordance with ADA standards, to establish good oral hygiene habits and promote healthy smiles! We can also assist you in any necessary referrals for orthodontics, oral surgery, or any other extensive dental work that would be better suited for a specialist! We work closely with many offices here in town and will work with you to develop the best treatment plan for your children.
