Unless there are specific issues that need to be addressed immediately, your child’s first visit to our office will not involve much treatment. It’s more about giving your child an opportunity to get familiar with our office and our team. Sometimes, parents are encouraged to sit in the dental chair and hold their child during part of the exam, and other times we have parents wait out of the child’s view so that your child will learn to trust us and look forward to future visits.
During the exam, we will check all of your child’s existing teeth for decay, check your child’s bite, and examine the gums, jaws and jaw joints. If needed, we will provide a cleaning. You’ll also learn home care techniques and we will discuss developmental issues and answer any questions you may have.
