What to Expect at Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist
Thank you for selecting our pediatric dental office in Brewster for your child’s dental care. Whether this is your child’s first visit to a dentist ever or if you are changing dentists and coming to our practice for the first time, rest assured that we will do everything we can to make your child’s visit to the dentist go smoothly.
Our team of friendly kids’ dentists and team members make every trip to our office fun. Our waiting room is stocked with books, coloring pages, games, and a TV tuned to kid-friendly shows. However, we do everything we can to make sure you don’t have to wait. Our goal is to get you in to see the pediatric dentist as quickly as possible.
Parents and siblings are allowed to come back with the patient while they are having the exam and cleaning completed. Each patient room is private, so feel free to ask any questions you have.
During your child’s visit, the pediatric dentist will:
- Examine your child’s teeth and make sure they’re coming in correctly and are cavity-free
- Examine your child’s bite to ensure the jaws and teeth align properly
- Take x-rays if necessary. We typically do not take x-rays of young children’s teeth unless we suspect there may be cavities.
- Clean the teeth
- Apply fluoride
After your child is finished, he or she can pick a prize from our treasure box. It’s just one more way we make the visit fun.
