The First Visit

Your Child's First Visit

We first ask that you fill out the online New Patient Form and submit it prior to your initial appointment. We will thoroughly review the information before your visit so we can spend time getting to know you and your child.

Your initial visit will provide a friendly, caring introduction to our dental home where lifelong relationships begin. We pride ourselves on being an inviting environment and our main goal is to put your child at ease.  The initial visit with your child will include but not be limited to homecare instruction, nutrition counseling, growth & development evaluation, orthodontic evaluation as well as a comprehensive exam that will outline existing dental concerns.

You are welcome to accompany your child at all times during your visit to our office.

When Should I Take My Child to the Dentist for the First Time?

The American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend that a child see a pediatric dentist within six months of the first tooth appearing, and no later than their first birthday. This should be the beginning of a positive relationship that will last through adolescence, between the dentist, the child and the parent. It also allows the dentist to monitor growth and development as the child grows, and catch any problems while they are still small and easy to treat. Our doctors gladly accept patients from infancy through adolescence.
