Your Child's First Dental Visit

Whether your child is an infant or an adolescent, their first dental visit will be short and may involve little treatment. In this way, your child meets the dentist in a friendly and non-threatening way – with you right at his or her side.

We work hard to provide your child with Kid Friendly pediatric dental care. That gives parents peace-of-mind as their children learn that dental visits and good dental habits can be stress free and fun. (For new patients, please visit our Patient Forms page.)

During the first visit, Dr. Gjebre will:

  • Check existing teeth for decay
  • Examine your child’s bite
  • Look for any problems with gums, jaw, and oral tissues
  • Discuss the steps of program to prevent future dental problems
  • Discuss developmental issues such as teething or getting “grown-up” teeth
  • Listen closely to your concerns and answer all your questions

If problems are detected, further care will be discussed. This may include:

  • Cleaning your child’s teeth by a dental hygienist
  • Assessing the need for fluoride or sealing
  • Suggesting changes in your child’s diet, or
  • Changes to oral habits that are contributing to developing problems

Remember, we also offer Sedation Dentistry and we are experienced in meeting the dental needs of Special Needs children. Contact us today to learn more.
