When & What Is My Child’s First “Regular” Visit?
The first “regular” dental visit should be no later than your child’s first birthday. We want to make sure the experience is as pleasant as possible for the child and parent. We will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. We may clean your child’s teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. If you don’t agree on fluoride application to your child, please feel free to let us know. We want you feel comfortable and include you the loop of decision maker. We will also provide child’s drinking water fluoride analysis so the amount of fluoride supplement is as low as possible yet provide adequate prevention at home. Of course, we only prescribe fluoride supplement when parent agrees. Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth along with diet counseling.
