The First Visit
Your child’s dental health begins long before the celebration of the first tooth. It starts with the mother’s nutrition during pregnancy combined with the family’s health history. Therefore, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines recommend establishing a dental home by the first birthday.
At your first visit we take special interest in you and your child’s medical history. It’s true that some individuals are more cavity prone than others and this trait can be hereditary. Knowing as much as possible from the very beginning allows us to develop a customized prevention plan for your child incorporating dietary habits, nutrition, oral hygiene techniques and the latest prevention methods to ensure optimal oral health for your child.
As children mature, we gradually give them more responsibility for taking care of their oral health. With many years of experience, we are knowledgeable in techniques that motivate children of all ages.
