Tips for a Fun, Relaxing First Visit
- We recommend bringing your child in just before or after his or her first tooth erupts.
- During your first visit to our pediatric dental office, our skilled team will help acclimate your little one to our office to make them feel at home.
- Treat the visit like a casual trip to the grocery store. Building up the experience too much beforehand could make your child feel anxious.
- To make things more relaxing, your child can sit on your lap while our dentist performs an examination and cleaning.
- Feel free to bring in a toy or stuffed animal that may calm your child.
- Depending on his or her comfort level and needs, we can perform x-rays, fluoride treatments, and cleanings during the initial pediatric dentistry appointment.
- Your little one will also receive a present: a small toothbrush and toothpaste tube so you can begin at-home care.

Why Choosing a Pediatric Dentist Is So Important
Many general dentists also see children but pediatric dentists are usually better equipped to handle their unique needs. Our team has undergone additional education to learn how to meet the dentistry needs of even our youngest patients.
A major part of this additional education involves training pediatric dentists to make children feel more comfortable at the dentist's office. Forming a positive association early on can have lifelong effects.
