In agreeance with the American Academy of Pediatric
Dentistry, we recommend scheduling your child’s first dental appointment around
their first birthday. At Pediatric Dental Group, we strive to make the first visit
as enjoyable as possible so that your child will look forward to trips to the
dentist office in the future. Our doctors and staff are dedicated to making you
and your child comfortable during your time with us. We understand that comfortability
builds trust and limits worry for future visits. Our doctors and staff will
explain everything in detail, to both child and parent, and answer any
questions. Please feel free to discuss any fears or anxiety.
We encourage parents to use positivity when preparing
children for their first visit, and avoid fearful words like “needle’ or “hurt.”
Our experienced doctors and staff can explain treatment procedures in a way that
doesn’t frighten children. A comprehensive exam will be completed, and all
dental and medical history is recorded and discussed with you. We make sure to
discuss the important of taking care of your teeth to ensure your child
continues to have a beautiful smile and healthy oral care!

first dental visit, give us a call today! One of our friendly staff members is
waiting to speak with you!
