What To Expect At Your First Visit
Our goal is to become acquainted with your little ones and for them to become acquainted with us. We believe that prevention is an essential tool when it comes to maintaining optimal oral health and recommend that every child visit us at least by their first birthday. We do however recommend you see us even sooner, when their first tooth erupts. Depending on your child’s age and needs, your visit may consist of the following:
- Brushing station: Your child has a chance to show off their brushing skills and will be observed by a dental professional who will teach them new techniques to become more effective brushers.
- Examination: A thorough dental exam will be performed to check your child’s growth patterns and check for dental cavities. An oral cancer screening will also be performed.
- Dental Radiographs: radiographs (or x-rays) will be recommended if needed.
- Cleaning, fluoride application and dental sealants will be recommended if needed.
