When Should My Child First Visit a Dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that regular dental care begin around one year of age.
What Can My Child Expect During The First Visit with Dr. Young?
Your child’s first visit to our office will include a comprehensive medical history review along with a thorough dental exam.
The exam will consist of an evaluation of the teeth and gums, a head and neck exam, and a preliminary orthodontic evaluation. We will determine if any x-rays are needed, and discuss if a cleaning and fluoride treatment will be done at that time. We will then review our findings with you in detail, and design a treatment plan to fit your child’s needs. Most importantly, a program of preventive home care will be discussed and reviewed.
