Right Age

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics, we recommend that a child's first dental visit be scheduled by his/her 1st birthday or within 6 months of the eruption of your child's first tooth. It is very important to make the first visit as positive and enjoyable for the child as possible. We want your child to enjoy getting to know Dr. Emily and our staff. Your child's comfort is our primary concern. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. Let your child know that Dr. Emily and her staff will explain everything in detail and will answer any questions he/she may have. We are experienced in dealing with children who may have anxiety and can explain treatment procedures in a positive and pleasant manner.

We will record the child's dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. We will also review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
