What happens at the first dental visit?
At the first visit, our team hopes to make your child comfortable at our office. The first thing we’ll do is give your child a ride in the chair and take extra time to explain each step. Your child will have a cleaning, exam, and the appropriate x-rays for their age. We will make your child comfortable and most importantly, we’ll make it fun!!
After their first visit, your child will receive a token to select their own special prize from our treasure tower! We want to make the dental office a fun and exciting place for kids to come!
What is the “No Cavity Club”?
Kids between the ages of 2 and 16 who are cavity free after their visit are automatically entered to win. The drawing is held once a month and the winner is sent a No Cavity Club Certificate and a gift card!
Most children have a full set of 20 primary teeth by the time they are 3 years old. A child’s first dental visit is recommended at age 3. At age 6, when children typically begin to lose their primary teeth, a panoramic x-ray is recommended to check the development of permanent teeth. The first permanent molars usually erupt between ages 5 and 6. To help prevent decay, dental sealants are placed on all newly erupted and cavity free permanent teeth as your child grows. Six month cleanings and fluoride treatments are highly encouraged. Family members can also help out by enforcing good homecare with regular brushing and flossing.
