At the first dental visit, your child’s medical and dental history will be discussed with you to make sure we have a clear understanding of the status of your child’s health. We encourage parents to accompany their children during this visit so that you can gain as much information as possible about their dental health. A head, neck, and oral examination will be completed, digital x-rays will be taken as needed. Any significant findings that are discovered during the dentist’s exam will be discussed with you and your child. Once the examination is completed, a cleaning with fluoride treatment will be performed when appropriate. If additional appointments are warranted, scheduling and treatment options will be discussed.
