Your child's first visit
It is our recommendation, along with that of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD); that your child establishes a “Dental Home” by their first birthday. It has been proven that children with “Dental Homes”are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine oral health care, and are less likely to develop preventable dental/oral diseases.
We encourage parents to accompany children into the treatment room, especially during the initial visit, so we may build a secure and comfortable relationship with your entire family.
Brushing techniques, flossing, healthy snacks and fluoride recommendations are just some of the topics discussed during your child's initial dental appointment.
