Your Child's First Visit

Good habits begin with a positive first experience! We typically begin seeing children in our office at age 3 for a "Happy Visit".

During this appointment, we will give your child a "ride" in the dental chair, and introduce them to the sights and sounds of the dental office.

We then pace our approach based on your child's interest and response to the dental environment. If we are having fun, we will proceed with a teeth cleaning while your child holds "Mr. Thirsty" (the suction) and learns what we are all about. Or, if we see that we need to move a little more slowly, we may give them a toy and ask them to come see us again to "count" their teeth.

We will also teach both you and your child how to make brushing and healthy eating habits fun and rewarding to help take care of that precious smile!
