The child’s first visit is important for several reasons. In many in-stances, it is the child’s first experience with dentistry; in some cases, the child has had a previous unpleasant experience. Emergency problems will be dealt with first; if your child is in pain we will do our best to alleviate it. If there are no emergency problems, we will examine your child’s mouth (lips, cheeks, tongue, floor of the mouth, tonsil area, hard and soft palate), check the growth and development of the head, check the teeth and gums. The child will receive a thorough cleaning, topical fluoride treatment and we will take such x-ray films as are necessary. Give us a call to set up an appointment for your child!
