What Will My Child’s First Dental Visit Be Like?
We will first schedule your child for a consultation at our friendly and modern office. We suggest you make your child's first dental appointment when their first tooth arrives.
Your child's first appointment will involve a thorough exam of their jaw, gums, and teeth (or tooth) from our very experienced and kind Dr. Omid Barkhordar. The initial visit is a great way for us to meet you and your child and to spot and stop any possible oral complications. A dental treatment is usually unnecessary at this stage of your child's dental development.
When and How Often Should I Bring My Child to the Dentist?
A baby should be brought to the dentist between 6 months and 1 year of age, around when the first tooth comes in. We strongly encourage you to make sure your child is brought in once every six months for their routine dental checkup. As your child gets older, we'll be there to make sure their smile is always something they can be proud of.
Do Kids Need Routine Dental Cleanings?
Yes, your child should see us at least twice per year for regular teeth cleanings. Our dental hygienists excel at helping kids feel calm and safe and will teach them how to brush and floss properly.
