Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that a child’s first dental visit be scheduled by his/her first birthday. It is very important to make the first visit as positive and enjoyable for the child as possible. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our doctors and staff and be comfortable at all times.
A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. Let your child know that the doctors and staff will explain everything in detail and will answer any questions he/she has. Children should be encouraged to discuss any fears or anxiety they feel!
