Your child’s first visit should be scheduled within 6 months after eruption of the first tooth and no later than 12 months of age as endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). The purpose of this visit is to conduct a caries risk assessment and to provide parental education for prevention of oral disease.
Your child’s first visit will consist of a dental cleaning, x-rays and fluoride treatment (when applicable), a dental examination, and Oral Hygiene Instructions. At this visit, your child’s medical and dental history will be reviewed and evaluated and each step of the appointment will be outlined prior to your child being seated in the chair.
We will provide you with many opportunities to ask questions and to be involved with your child’s visit but we do ask you to allow us to engage with your child so they can develop a relationship and trust with us as their dentist. At Sunkidz Dentistry we will do our best to ensure you and your child have a fun, successful and educational first visit!
