child´s first visit

Help make your child´s first visit a good one!

Thank you for choosing us to be your child’s dentist. While a child’s first visit to the dentist can be fun and informative, children can also be apprehensive about the visit. Luckily, you are able to do quite a bit to help your child feel at ease:

Before the visit:

  • Speak positively about the dentist, and with excitement.
  • Avoid words that could make the child fearful such as “hurt,” “drill,” “needle,” and/or “shot.”

During the visit:

  • Join your children for the initial appointment so that you can all become familiar with our team.
At the initial visit, your child will have a cleaning, an exam, and x-rays, if they are an appropriate age. The hygiene assistant will teach your child proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as discuss nutrition and diet. Dr. Sam will perform an exam, speak with you and explain any problem areas, discuss treatments and alternatives, as well as answer any questions you may have.

No long waits, they remember you and your child. They are personable and very caring. We love the crew here. Having familiar faces is everything for kids, especially in places that can be scary for some kids.
