New parents always ask when they should bring in their child for their first visit, and the answer is before their first birthday. We know that this can be a very anxious situation, so at our practice we make sure to take every step to make sure your child receives the best treatment, and that they feel comfortable.
If it is your child’s first time, there are certain steps you can take to help their experience.
- Call and ask about the procedures so there are no surprises for you or your child.
- Call to provide us information about the potential behavior of your child. It is good that we do not have surprises as well.
- Talk to your child and explain why they go to the dentist. Treat it as a happy experience and build excitement.
- Bring with you any past medical history that is applicable.
Whether your child is one or fifteen, we are here to help your child to have healthy teeth.
