The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) both recommend your child’s first dental visit to be by the age of one.
   
You can help make your child’s first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive.  If old enough, your child can be told that the dentist and her team will explain all procedures and answer any questions.  The less to-do regarding the visit, the better. 

It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle”, “shot”, “pull”, “drill”, or “hurt”.  Our team makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to your child.  Some words we like to use are “tickle brush”, “tooth counter”, “Mr. Thirsty”, and “Tinker Bell’s fairy dust”.

We understand that new experiences can be frightening.  We invite you to stay with your child during all appointments.   For the safety and privacy of all patients, other children who are not being treated should remain the in reception room with a supervising adult. 

We strive to make each and every visit fun!
