Building a Lifetime of Smiles Begins with a Strong Foundation
Getting Ready For Your First Appointment
Encourage open conversations with your child about their upcoming dental appointment. The primary goal of this first visit is to create a comfortable, enjoyable atmosphere and foster a positive bond with the dentist. Uncertainty about what lies ahead can sometimes lead to anxiety. To ease this, here’s a rundown of what your child can anticipate in their initial dental appointment:
Talk and Listen
We’ll engage both you and your child in conversation, clarifying our procedures and the reasons behind them, and introduce your child to some of the instruments we use. Our approach involves using child-friendly language and demystifying any dental jargon to ensure your child feels as relaxed and confident as possible. You’ll see, there’s nothing frightening about us at all.
We may request your child to demonstrate their tooth brushing technique, after which we’ll provide gentle guidance on how to enhance their brushing routine at home. We’re also here to address any questions you or your child might have about dental health.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.
