Your Childs First Visit to the Dentist: What to Expect

The arrival of your child’s first tooth is so exciting and allows your children to not only look adorable but also graduate to an entire new variety of foods! While celebrating the cute new smile, you also need to begin thinking about their first dental appointment.

When you arrive at the office, our number one goal is to make sure your child has an amazing experience in our office! It’s so important that we work together to ensure that your child builds a positive relationship with our team and looks forward to coming to the dentist. During their first visit we will “count teeth” and teach your child how to properly brush. Teaching children the importance of oral health is critical in the early stages of life and helps children become accustomed to a proper oral care routine.
