First Visit

What to expect...

Our goal when your child meets us for the first time is to make the visit an ejoyable and positive one.  Each kid is unique so we don't take a one-size-fits-all approach to the first visit.  We'll let your child set the pace.  We do all we can to make the visit fun and educational in order to build a strong foundation for oral health that we hope will last for a lifetime.  Much of the appointment is about having a comfortable and open conversation about your child's oral habits to include diet, brushing routine, and cavity risk factors.  Generally, the first visit is simply getting to know your child, do an oral check-up, and making oral assessments.  


To help build a doctor-child relationship, we teach with a method called "tell-show-do" and we tell show and do very honestly! This could be with a brushing demonstration or a new way  to hold floss.  We highly recommend that your child's first dental visit be scheduled in the morning  when they are well rested, most alert and engaging.
