Plan Your Visit

Making the First Appointment

WHEN, WHY, AND HOW?

We recommend you bring in your child for their first dental visit by age 1. This is in line with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s recommendations. A visit at such a young age allows them to familiarize themself with our office, meet our staff, and meet their dentist. This not only establishes a dental home for your child but also helps them feel comfortable in our fun, friendly environment.

Early visits set the stage for positive oral health habits into adulthood and a lifetime of healthy teeth. When you bring your child in for their first dental visit, you can be sure that the Dakota Pediatric Dentistry team will provide a welcoming, comfortable experience. Make an appointment today.

What To Expect

OVERVIEW FOR PARENTS

At your child’s first dental visit, we’ll ask you questions about their medical and dental histories. We’ll also complete an evaluation of your child’s mouth and brush their teeth. We do recommend that you accompany your child into the treatment room for their first dental visit. This can help make them feel more comfortable.

Depending on your child’s age or needs, we may also take X-rays and offer other treatments. We use digital X-rays at our office as these provide better imaging and less radiation exposure for your child. For younger children, your dentist will provide brushing tips and discuss any issues or risk factors. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
