Our team is committed to making your child’s dental visit pleasant for both the parent and their child.
We believe in helping children avoid discomfort caused by oral diseases. The goal of the first visit is to provide the family with the necessary dental knowledge and guidance to maintain a healthy smile. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children visit the dentist by their first birthday. The first examination will be a chance for early detection and prevention of dental issues, as well as creating a relationship with the dental team.
For a young child, new experiences may bring along some anxiety. Parents should not be apprehensive if their child does not cooperate during their first visit. Fear of the unknown is often expressed by a child by crying. This is very common. Children, when given the opportunity, experience a lot of gratification in overcoming their fear or anxiety.
Most of our patients, after they experience their visit, will see their visit as fun and pleasant. Children dental anxiety is often different from adult dental anxiety, since a young child has not created their perception of dentistry yet. As such, we make every effort to cultivate a long term positive association.
Superior oral health is vital for a child’s development, and we are here to help every step of the way.
We are committed to making your child’s first dental visit a pleasant and comfortable one. We understand the importance of establishing a good oral hygiene regimen early in a child’s life, and we provide children with the necessary knowledge and treatment to maintain a healthy smile.
