Your Child's First Visit

It is recommended that a child have their first dental check-up by the age of 1. Informing your child about their first dental visit is very helpful. At your child’s first visit, we will review the medical/dental health history form with you. We will get to know your child and help them to feel comfortable in the office by explaining what will happen during their visit, and showing them the tools and instruments we will use to help keep their smile healthy.

We have found that children have a better experience without a parent or a sibling present in the operatory.  This allows Dr. Vnek and the hygienists to build a relationship with your child.  However, if you wish to join your child during treatment, we ask that only one parent accompany the child and that the parent be a silent observer during treatment.

A thorough head and neck examination and evaluation of the teeth and gums are performed. Radiographs (x-rays) are taken only if necessary. If no treatment is needed, the teeth will be cleaned and a fluoride treatment will be provided.

When you come in for your child's initial visit, please be sure to bring your child's dental insurance card and arrive early to fill out our initial paperwork if you have not already done so. We look forward to meeting you and your child for your first appointment!
