Preparing For Your Visit

Congratulations! You have taken the first step to ensure that your child receives great oral care that will follow them for a life- time. We can't wait to meet your child. Below is what to expect from your first visit.


The exam is sometimes very quick but always very thorough. Our doctors are able to gain valuable information from this exam, and will be evaluating your child's growth and developmental status, as well as the health of their teeth and gums. Infants and young children can have developmental conditions that may present themselves in the oral cavity and might only be seen at a dental check-up. Based on the exam, dietary and hygiene recommendations are reviewed with you, as well as any information specific to your child's oral health status.

FAQ's

1Choosing the Right Pediatric Dentist
Children require specialized care from a pediatric dentist that has had proper extended training after dental school. They must be dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy to mid-teens. Each age group requires a unique approach to ensure proper dental growth and development.
2Care For Your Child's Teeth
It is important to begin good oral health as soon as the child's first tooth erupts. Children should start seeing a pediatric dentist at age 1 or when they have 4-5 teeth, depending on what comes first. Brushing twice a day and flossing with an adult assisting and taking a fluoride supplement is an essential in keeping your child’s teeth and gums healthy.
3Preparing Your Child For Their Dental Visit
Refrain from using intimidating words that could cause your child unnecessary fear. Pediatric Dentists and their staff are conditioned to use words that convey a positive and pleasant message. Try to avoid words and phrases that include needles, pull, pain, or drill. Ask the dentist to inform your child of the procedures and answer any questions.
4Eat Healthy & Avoid Sweets
Good eating habits is the best way to ensure that your child will have a healthy smile and body. Try to eat a variety of foods that fall under the five major food groups. Reduce the amount of time your child snacks and stay away from hard candy and breath mints. These tend to stay on the tooth enamel and cause for longer acid attacks, increasing the risk of a cavity. Vegetables, low-fat yogurt, and low fat cheeses can replace the typical sweet snack.
