Child’s First Visit

Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist

Our staff is highly qualified to create an educational, enjoyable and positive first visit.  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics both recommend that the first dental visit be at one year of age (first tooth = first visit is the advised guideline).  Children who have their first dental experience when they are young are more likely to have a favorable outlook toward dental care throughout life. You, as parents, play a very important role in getting your child started with a positive attitude toward dental care.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOUR FAMILY!

Before the first visit, read our picture book SOCIAL STORY™ with your child.
