Your Child's First Visit To Our Practice
Your Child's First Visit
Your child's first dental visit is an important step in establishing healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Your child should come in for a first visit when he or she is one year old, or within six months of the appearance of his or her first tooth. If you haven't visited our office before, we'll walk you through the process and make sure you and your child are comfortable.
At your first visit, your child will receive a dental x-ray and Dr. Edwards will examine your child's teeth in order to identify any problem areas. Dr. Edwards will then consult with you to let you know her findings. If there are any areas of concern, she will establish a treatment plan with you.
It's important to care for your child's teeth right from the start. If you have any questions about your child's treatment or about how to meet his or her dental care needs, Dr. Edwards will be happy to answer them all during your consultation. Please don't hesitate to ask! We want to ensure your child's teeth stay healthy and bright.
