YOUR CHILDS FIRST VISIT
What happens in the First visit
Your child's first Dentist exam should be within 6 months after the first tooth comes in and no later than their 1st birthday. The purpose of the first visit is to build a trusting relationship with your child. A dental visit at an early age for a 'check-up' and further advice from your dentist is important for the oral health and well-being of your child.
Besides checking for tooth decay and any other problems, your dentist can inform you about good oral hygiene habits as well as assess if there are any adverse habits such as thumb sucking or nursing bottle caries. Starting dental visits at an early age will help the child feel more relaxed at consequent visits.
Tips for parent on the First visit
As a parent, you can help make your child's first visit to the dentist positive and enjoyable. Be sure to inform your child of the visit and its purpose, but take care in how you present it. You may want to show your child photos of the dentist and other happy children on our website. Please avoid using words that cause fear such as "needle" or "drill", as this can put fear in a child. Most importantly, please don't tell your child that the experience could be painful.
Parents are welcome and encouraged to accompany their child during the initial exam. This gives us the opportunity to communicate directly with you about your child's dental health.
