On the first appointment younger children will have an introduction to the office. Our experience has shown that most children over the age of three will enjoy their first visit without the accompaniment of their parents.*
Your child will have an examination of their mouth and teeth. This is usually accompanied by a cleaning and fluoride treatment. As well as discuss diet and tips for oral hygiene.
School age children often will have radiographs (x-rays) taken to determine the eruption patterns and development of their dental structures as well as to check for cavities.
You will also have a consultation with the doctor and have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss your child's treatment needs.
*Certainly exceptions to this may be made when children are very apprehensive or very young.
