In our pediatric dental clinic, we prioritize your child's initial dental visit in accordance with the guidelines provided by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). Ideally, this visit should take place within six months of their first tooth emerging or around their first birthday. The main goal of these first visits is to cultivate a positive and comfortable bond between your child and the dentist, laying the groundwork for a lifetime of outstanding oral health.

  • A thorough review of your child's and family's health history.

  • Discussions covering your child's oral habits, pacifier use, diet, and overall development.

  • A gentle examination of your child's teeth and gums.

  • Evaluation of any impending tooth eruptions.

  • Expert guidance on maintaining your child's oral health, including brushing, flossing, fluoride intake, and oral injury prevention.

Encouraging positive associations with dental visits can be achieved through a calm and positive demeanor, along with age-appropriate explanations about the process.
