Expectations for a Child’s Exam

Home / Uncategorized / Expectations for a Child’s Exam

We hope that all of your visits to our office are peaceful and exciting, for you and for your children. We recognize that a few children have an irrational fear of the dentist’s office, and we do all that we can to make their visits peaceful, starting when they are very young. Here are some bits of information about what you can expect when you bring your little one to our office for an appointment for the first time.

Because your child should come with you to visit our office for the first time between six months and one year of age, they will need to rest on your lap as you sit in the dental chair. The dentist will inspect your child’s teeth and jaws to make sure that they are growing appropriately. They will next check the child’s mouth for any cavities, oral injuries or developmental concerns. If everything looks right, the dentist will clean your baby’s chompers and give you some advice on keeping up your child’s oral health so they can grow into healthy pearly whites that will stay with them for a lifetime with appropriate care.
