First Dental Visit

Adults

Welcome to our office. We are glad that you have chosen us for your dental care. 

During your first new patient visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth if needed. [We advise current x-rays be sent by your previous dentist prior to this appointment]. The dentist will meet with you to discuss your X-rays,examine for caries,  gum (periodontal) disease,and  oral cancer.  She will create a treatment plan and answer any questions you may have.

At your next visit, a hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, and inspect your teeth and gums for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.

 

 


Children

We welcome little ones to our office. We are all  Moms treating you like family.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises a child should visit a dentist by their first birthday or within 6 months of his/her erupting front tooth.  We see a lot of babies at our office.

Baby's first visit- The pediatric dentist will examine your child and discuss preventive care- proper gum and tooth care, nutrition, brushing technique, check for tongue mobility, discuss airway, look at jaw structure..palate, tonsils and answer questions.  We do baby steps for our little ones... tell, show, do. We only take x-rays when indicated , like trauma to a front tooth.

 

Parents, please try to say all positive things about the dentist, even if you have had POOR experiences. We do not use the words needles or drills  to frighten them.
