Along with the Canadian and American Academies of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that a child’s first dental visit be scheduled by his/her 1st birthday. It is very important to make the first visit as positive and enjoyable for the child as possible. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our doctors and staff and be comfortable at all times. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits.
We will record the child’s dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. To ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life we will also review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program, including dietary and oral hygiene modifications that you may benefit from. When applicable we will provide anticipatory guidance in relation to your child’s medical history, your child’s bite and jaw alignment, and the nature of his/her teeth and future considerations.
