Your Child’s First Dental Visits
Pediatric check-ups should begin at age one. Tooth decay can start early and it is important to discuss a program of preventive home care, which includes brushing, flossing, diet control, and use of fluoride.
By age three, most children are ready to schedule regular cleanings. These visits are important to ensure primary teeth (baby teeth) are healthy and Dr. Barry and Dr. Love are able to assess any potential gum problems.
The first visit:
When you and your child come to see us, we spend a great deal of time making sure everyone is comfortable with their surroundings. A few ways we accomplish this:
- Riding the dental chair up and down
- Meeting “Mr. Thirsty” and other dental equipment in a fun age appropriate manner
- Counting teeth (dental exam)
- Digital x-rays if indicated
We are committed to making their first visit a fun and pleasant experience for your kids.
If your child needs urgent or emergency dental treatment, Dr. Barry and Dr. Love are ready to help. Quick action can save a tooth, prevent infection, and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment. Be sure to keep Dr. Barry and Dr. Love’s phone numbers where caretakers can find them easily!
We welcome all questions that you may have regarding any age infants to teens.
