It’s recommended to bring your child into Anderson Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics, Inc. for their first dental appointment six months after their first tooth erupted or around their first birthday. This is recommended because the first appointment can help both you and your child in many ways. To help you know what to expect during your child’s first dental appointment, our dentist, Dr. John Anderson, is happy to list the steps that are involved. You can expect the following things to happen:
-A review of your child’s health history (We will ask you a series of questions to get a good idea of your child’s overall health.)
-A simple oral exam (We will use our fingers, eyes, and small dental tools to inspect your child’s mouth, especially things like the teeth, gums, cheeks, palate and throat.)
-A chance to ask our team questions (We welcome any questions you have and we’re happy to give you the answers you need.)
-A chance for your child to get to know our dentist and dental team (When your child gets to know our team, especially at a young age, it reduces the chance of having dental anxiety in the future.)
-An overview of how to care for your child’s teeth and gums (We will teach you how to properly care for your child’s smile so they can have the top-notch oral health they deserve.)
