We hope that your checkups to our office are relaxing and exciting, for you and for your children. We recognize that some children have an irrational fear of the dentist’s office, and we do all we can to make their checkups enjoyable, starting when they are very young. Here are a few bits of data about what you can expect when you bring your infant to our office for a checkup for the first time.

Because your child should visit our office for the first time between half of a year and one year of age, they will need to sit on your lap as you sit in the dental chair. The dentist will observe your child’s chompers and jaws to make sure that they are growing correctly. They will next inspect the child’s oral cavity for any tooth decay, injuries or developmental issues. If everything looks okay, our dentist professionals will clean your baby’s pearly whites and give you some advice on upholding your child’s dental health so they can grow into healthy teeth that will stay with them for a lifetime with attentive care.
