A child’s first dental visit in Lake Worth to the dentist can be a little worrisome and daunting. However, with the right preparations, some fun prizes, and friendly faces, we can create an inviting experience for your kids. First and subsequent visits to our dental office are tailored to the behavior and age of each child. Our goal is to provide a positive experience so they look forward to coming back again!
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child’s first visit should be when their newly erupted teeth are showing. This means that around the age of one, your child should have their first dental visit and establish their dental home.
We understand that work and school are very important, yet we have seen a huge rise in children’s ability to cooperate, focus and be in a calmer state of mind when appointments are made in the morning. We are happy to provide you with documentation excusing yourself and your child from daily obligations if need be.
Once you enter our children dental office in Lake Worth FL, our front desk staff will immediately greet you. Our dental assistant will escort you both to the dental chair and start to familiarize you with our dental equipment and how they work. We use behavioral management skills to gain a trusting connection with your child. This will allow us to perform a thorough cleaning and have x-rays done if need be.
Once this is completed, you will meet with your doctor who will perform a thorough examination. They will be able to explain the importance of diet, proper oral hygiene, the cavity process, oral habits, fluoride exposure, and much more. If cavities are present, we will review all options available to you and create a treatment plan.
Our goal is to not only create a positive and fun experience for your child but allow for your experience to be smooth and delightful.
