How can I prepare for my child for their first visit?
Let your child know that they will be going to see a dentist. Please do not lie to your child or use the dental visit as a form of punishment. We strive to make this a pleasant experience for your child.
Have your child practice opening their mouth and counting their teeth from 1 to 10.
We will ask you to fill out a detailed account of your child's medical history. If your child is taking any medication, please come to the office with the names and dosage of the medication.
What will happen on your child’s first visit?
- Counting your child’s teeth
- Radiographs (x-rays) to be taken (if possible)
- Treatment plan presentation:
