Our office, as well as the The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) all recommend establishing a "Dental Home" for your child by one year of age. Children who have a dental home are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine oral health care.
You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. If old enough, your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.
We invite you to stay with your child during the initial examination as well as all subsequent visits. We also invite younger siblings back to observe older siblings as a form of modeling good behavior. With our convenient family block scheduling, we will be happy to accommodate the entire family in one visit.
If you choose not to accompany your child back to the treatment area, feel free to use our free wi-fi or enjoy a complimentary beverage in the waiting area. The visit should be fun for adults too!
We strive to make each and every visit to our office a fun one!
