The first visit is usually very simple. We are focusing on getting to know your child and giving you some basic information about dental care. If possible, we will clean your child’s teeth. The pediatric dentist will examine your child’s teeth and gums and determine if there are any problems or concerns.
If your child has a lot of anxiety on their first visit we may turn it into a “happy visit” where they would just tour the office and meet the dental team in the hopes that we can get them acquainted and reduce anxiety.
