The first dental visit to our office for older children can be an enjoyable experience. It provides an opportunity for your child to become familiar with the dental office, our staff, and have a fun, positive experience. At your child’s first visit he or she will be able to receive an exam, cleaning, fluoride treatment, and x-rays if necessary. We encourage parents to accompany their child during their first dental visit. If your child is timid he or she may benefit from an office tour prior to an exam appointment.
At your first visit Dr. Jarod will provide education on:
- Brushing techniques suitable for your child’s age
- Information on toothpaste and fluoride use
- Dietary habits
- Injury prevention
- Non-nutritive habits (pacifier use, thumb sucking, nail biting, bruxism, etc)
- Speech and language development
- Developing occlusion (bite)
- Assessment for sealants
