What to expect
If your children are meeting their dentist for the first time, it is important to set a good example by being relaxed. Let us help you make this experience a positive one so they will look forward to the visits that follow. When the checkup begins, you will need to join younger children in the room; older children may be left alone to build a good rapport with their dentist.
We will physically check their mouths and teeth for cavities and other suspicious signs to ensure excellent oral health, then perform cleaning and flossing. If needed, they may also receive fluoride treatments and dental sealants to help strengthen and protect their teeth.
