Whether your child is coming in for their first dental appointment or has struggled with oral health care in the past, pediatric smile care can be stressful for both you and your little one. From their first visit on, we make our office a welcoming one while helping kids enjoy a lifetime of good dental health!
Booking Pediatric Dental Visits
Booking Your Child’s First Visit
First visits are important for making your child comfortable with their dentist and in the dental office. We provide a gentle visual exam and also introduce your child to this new environment. This visit typically occurs when a child turns one.
Typically, children start their semiannual checkups around the age of two, but we are here to help if problems arise before this point.
Subsequent Pediatric Dental Appointments
As kids grow older, their visits more closely resemble the care adults enjoy during dental exams, though we still take time to answer questions and provide guidance so that they develop the right oral health habits.
Helpful Information For Parents
We Offer Guidance On At-Home Care
Your child’s first visit should take place as their teeth are beginning to arrive. We can provide information on safely protecting them as they come in. We can also talk to patients who are expecting about caring for their baby’s gums before their teeth start to move into place.
We Take Care Of Active Oral Health Threats
We are often able to take on a child’s dental needs when problems arise, and we can make the experiences kids have during these appointments easier with the assistance of nitrous oxide. However, there are times where a specialist’s help is needed—we will provide the necessary information and help schedule the appropriate services.
We Can Book Visits For Your Whole Family
Because you can schedule your own visits as well as your kids’ appointments, we can make dental care easier for your family.
