During a child's first dental visit, the parent can experience with their child. The child will come in, the staff, actually our clinical staff, the assistants are the ones that do the kids. They bring them in first. I come in and do the exam later on, but kind of show them around a little bit, show them what the chair is. Some kids, if you throw them in a chair right away, they're like, What's going on here?

We Make Dental Introductions Easy
The first dentist visit for a toddler is mostly an opportunity for the child to get to know our dentists and for you to ask any questions you may have about your child’s oral health. As your child gets older, we’ll introduce family dentistry services like dental sealants and fluoride applications to help prevent cavities and keep their teeth healthy. Because Drs. Yung and Jelinek have both completed orthodontics training, they’ll pay special attention to the alignment of your child’s teeth.
To make their first visits especially easy, we suggest you bring your children along with you when you come for your regular dental cleanings. Our caring dental assistants are happy to explain what is happening during your visit. They don’t mind answering all your children’s questions – even the creative ones! This way, your kids already know and like us when they come in for their own appointments.
