Your First Visit to Kids Smiles
You can make yourselves comfortable in our waiting room, specially-designed to keep your child happy and entertained. (One of our locations even has a movie theatre playing kid-friendly favorites all day long!)
What to Expect at your child's first visit
Our experienced doctors and team members are trained in responding to children’s unique questions, needs and emotions. We do everything we can to make your child’s experience positive and playful, while guiding them in achieving and maintaining a perfectly happy, healthy little smile.
Our goal during your child’s first appointment is to gain a clear picture of their current dental condition to provide them with the services and education they need to establish a strong and bright smile!
Your dentist will perform a thorough exam of your child’s mouth to assess any potential underlying conditions. Your child may have low-radiation radiographs taken so we can examine below the gum line.
We’ll discuss your child’s dental care history and daily habits, and we’ll educate him or her on best oral health practice. We’ll work with your child, demonstrating how to best implement these steps in an encouraging and natural manner!
What's Next? stay ahead of the game!
It’s recommended that your child visit us within six months of his or her first tooth erupting. This may sound early, but beginning a prevention plan at this time can help avoid early onset and future dental problems.
From there, you and your child should visit us for dental check-up every six months.
Depending on a number of factors, like your child’s hygiene, tooth growth and development, and the health of their teeth and gums, there may be additional visits required between those regular check-ups.
We Can't Wait to Meet You!
