First Infant Visit
We recommend the “First Dental Exam by the First Birthday”. Early education and prevention will help protect your child’s dental health from the beginning. At this visit, we will perform a short “lap” exam with you and your child, and apply fluoride to the teeth. A dental x-ray may be performed if necessary. We will provide information and techniques for cleaning and caring for your child’s new teeth. We will also discuss proper feeding/drinking habits, fluoride, trauma, teething, and oral habits. Finally, we will guide you through any dental problems that might already exist, and present ways to help prevent further problems in the future.
