Your Child’s First Visit
You might come into our El Dorado Hills dentist office more anxious than your children on his or her initial visit, so try your best to stay relaxed! Our office is full of state-of-the-art orthodontics technology and vastly different than the dental office you remember as a child. You will be delighted to see how comfortable you and your children will feel in our office. A positive outlook on dentistry starts with your child’s initial dental visit, and aids in successfully creating a life-long preventative plan for your child. Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled as soon as their first tooth erupts or before their first birthday. At your kids initial visit, you can expect:
- A thorough review of your child’s medical and dental history
- Helpful tips on keeping your child’s teeth clean after nursing or
Bottle-feeding to avoid decay
- Instruction on proper brushing techniques
- A comprehensive, non-invasive exam to check soft tissue and
- A visit to the toy chest!
You may join your child during treatment at any time; however, we also welcome you to enjoy movies, toys, and video games with your other kids in our reception area. If you do plan on coming with your child during dental services and treatment, try not to bring other children to that appointment, as space is limited in offices.
You should continue bringing in your child every six months following their first dental or orthodontics appointment for evaluations, professional cleanings and general oral health. Keeping up with regular scheduled visits, as well as brushing and flossing teeth will reduce the risk of tooth decay.
