Yes! We welcome patients of all ages. We take pride in being a family practice and creating a family environment. We strive to create a comfortable environment for you and your children.
We like to see kids for the first time around the age of one year. Most children start getting their teeth around six months of age, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends children visit the dentist within about six months of their first tooth coming in.
The first dental appointments for your children are all about making them feel comfortable at the dentist. We don’t want them to see the dentist as a scary place. Children who go to the dentist regularly usually grow up to be adults who continue going to the dentist regularly. They also tend to feel less anxiety about going to the dentist.
We will communicate with your child in an age-appropriate manner, so they understand what we are saying. We will never force treatment on your child if he or she is not comfortable with it.
Parents are invited to bring their young children along to their own dental appointments to show them that there is nothing to fear at the dentist. This can also help them grow accustomed to the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist office.
