Your Child's First Dental Visit
At Carolina Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, are committed to helping you and your child have the best first visit to the dentist. When children are anxious about the dentist, we want them to feel safe and parents to feel confident that their children are receiving the highest-quality care. Our staff will help your child feel comfortable during their entire visit!
Preparing your child for their first dentist visit
Before your child’s first visit to the dentist, you can help them feel comfortable by letting them know a little bit about what they can expect. We will spend some time getting to know them and, of course, reviewing their dental and medical history. We’ll take X-rays, too. We will try to make this as fun and enjoyable as possible.
At all of your child’s visits, they’ll spend some time with one of our hygienists to make sure their teeth are clean, polished, and healthy!
Don’t Forget: Make sure you bring your patient information form, your insurance card, and any other documentation that we’ll need to keep on file.
At the end of our appointments, if there are no concerns that will require a follow up, we’ll take some time to schedule your child for their next check-up. The American Dental Association recommends that check-ups and cleanings occur once every six months. We’ll look forward to seeing you soon.
