CHILDREN DENTISTRY
 

What Happens On The Child's First Visit to the Dentist?

We need to gather all information about your children in order to make proper diagnosis and treatment plan. These include: medical history, dental history, your main concern, a minimum of a panoramic x-ray and a few single x-rays.
It is a great idea to print out your health history and fill it out prior to appointment. That way, you can shorten your visit.
 




For a new child patient, who needs a check-up, we offer the following services:
- Soft Tissue Exam
- Hard Tissue Exam
- Cleaning with Fluoride Varnish (last up to 6mo)
 
1. HEALTH HISTORY FORM - X-RAY:
So, the first step is making the appointment for your child. We offer 2 days for Children Dentistry so we can focus only on the children. If you have more than one children, it is best to make an appoint for one child at at time. The next step is filling out the health history, then the child will have some x-rays taken and the dental assistant will escort them to the examination room. The assistant will ask the parent/guardian a few questions regarding your child's dental health.
 
2. EXAMINATION:
 
It is best to let the child gets used to the dental chair, the dental staff and be comfortable in letting us helping them taking care of their oral health.
The doctor will do the examination and the assistant will record all findings in the electronic chart.
At the end of the examination, the parents will be invited into the examination room. The doctor will go over the x-ray and treatment plan with the parents. Using intra-oral camera, we help the parents to be aware of all oral conditions the child's mouth. Our goal is to help the child to achieve optinum oral health and to develop good habit in in home care.
