Tips For Your Visit

Starting Dental Appointments Young

The earlier your child comes to the dentist, the more comfortable they will become with dental exams.
A child’s first birthday is a great time to schedule their first dental appointment!
Talking to your children about coming to the dentist can prepare them for their visit with us.

Some Useful Tips to Prepare Your Children for Their Visit

One-on-one Attention

Start oral hygiene young

Once your child’s first tooth erupts, gently brush them with a small, soft bristled toothbrush. Use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste.

A Fun & Relaxed Atmosphere

Make it fun!

At home while brushing sing the ABC’s while brushing their teeth or use an activity chart.

Modern & High Tech

Fun toothbrushes and toothpaste

Buy fun toothbrushes and toothpaste that make them excited to brush!

No-Needle Dentistry

Dental Books

Share a book about going to the dentist. This will help them visualize the office and procedures. Some Options: Daniel Goes to the Dentist and Peppa Pig Dentist Trip!

These smalls but meaningful steps will get them used to seeing us and allow our team to encourage your little one to have life-long healthy oral habits!
