The Things to Expect During Your Child’s First Dental Appointment

Posted .

Your child deserves a top-notch oral health and smile. This is why it’s important to care for their teeth and gums regularly. One way to do so is by bringing them into Pediatric Dental Associates & Orthodontics for their first dental appointment around their first birthday or six months after their first tooth erupted. This appointment is important for your child’s smile development and for you as a parent. It can help you both in many ways. When your child meets with one of our caring dentists, you can expect the following things to happen:

-A review of your child’s health history (We’ll ask you a series of questions to get an idea of your child’s overall health.)

-A simple oral exam (We’ll gently use our fingers and small dental tools to examine your child’s teeth and gums to make sure everything is in tip-top shape.)

-A chance to ask our team questions (We welcome any questions you have.)

-A chance for your child to get to know our dentist and dental team (If your child gets to know our team at an early age, it can decrease the chances of dental anxiety in the future.)

-An overview of how to care for your child’s teeth and gums (We will teach you how to properly care for your child’s smile so they can have the top-notch oral health they deserve.)
