Your child’s first visit to the dentist is a momentous occasion! Keeping a clean and healthy smile is important – even at a young age. We will introduce your child to a comforting and caring dental environment, resulting in a positive dental experience.
One of the most important things you can do for your child before their first dental visit is to encourage a positive dental attitude. There are many fun videos to watch and books to read that can show your child how visiting the dentist can help keep their teeth strong and healthy. You can even play pretend dentist at home to prepare them in a fun way!
The goal of your child’s first visit is to evaluate their oral health and introduce them to the dental office. Dr. Lenard will examine your child’s mouth and we will perform a cleaning. Wwe will take the time to review oral hygiene recommendations and discuss your child’s growth and development.
If at any time you have questions for us, don’t hesitate to ask! We’ll be happy to answer them.
During the visit, we will discuss how to keep up with good oral hygiene practices for your child, so when you get home you can practice to keep them healthy! This will include:
Just like adults, your child should come back every six months after their first visit.
