What can you expect for your child’s first dental visit?

A Comfortable Experience

One of the main reasons for your child’s first trip to the dentist office is to let him or her grow accustomed to the sights and sounds. Depending on the age of your child, you are welcome to sit in the dental chair holding your child. We want kids to feel relaxed when they are here, and sometimes that means mom or dad stays very close by.

Dr. Kim will conduct a quick examination and talk about any concerns you might have about your child’s oral health.

Preventive Care

Now is a good time to talk about the best way to keep tooth decay at bay for your child. Dr. Kim might recommend a fluoride treatment or dental sealants, both of which help to prevent the formation of cavities. She will also go over proper home care to ensure that you are confident taking care of brushing and flossing for your child until he or she has the dexterity to do it themselves.
