New experiences can be scary for our new little patients, and for new parents! We are here to help reduce the anxiety of a first dental visit.
The AAPD recommends, “The first examination is recommended at the time of the eruption of the first tooth and no later than 12 months of age.” We like to examine the little ones to assure new parents of normal growth and development. We provided a gentle examination of the teeth, jaw, gums and oral tissue often while your baby is still on your lap. We guide you in the best practices for healthy habits at home. Depending on your child’s comfort level and age, we may provide a gentle dental cleaning. The first visit can help answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s oral health. Sometimes newborns are referred to our office for issues with the oral tissue development, such as tongue ties. We will examine your baby and help you make an informed decision on the best choices for you and your baby.
