Our office is very child friendly and we strive to make kids’ visits to our office a positive experience. Here is what to expect at your child’s dental appointment:

-Review your child’s medical and dental history.

-Gently examine your child’s teeth and gums to check growth and development, oral hygiene, injuries, cavities or other problems.

-Clean the teeth and provide suggestions about daily care.

-Evaluated and advise you about your child’s fluoride exposure because too much or too little can lead to problems.

-Talk about feeding practices and give dietary counseling.

-Assess your child’s risk of developing tooth decay.

-Give information regarding oral development, teething, pacifier or finger/thumb sucking habits and injury prevention.

-Plan for any needed treatment or the next check-up.

It may be best to schedule a morning appointment if possible.  Children tend to be more rested and cooperative in the mornings.  Starting visits at an early age helps your child build good dental habits from the beginning.  Plus preventive dental care can save time, money, and teeth.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email the office.  Let’s make your kid’s dental visits a fun experience!
