We’re proud to offer pediatric oral care at three convenient Georgia locations.
At what age should I make the first dental appointment for my child?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends the first dental visit around the age of one. Although the child may have just a few teeth, it is important to meet the pediatric dentist and learn infant oral health instructions to prevent decay on those new teeth! Most children are ready for their first dental cleaning at three years of age.
What if my child is nervous?
All children have moments. Our doctors are specially trained to treat children, with an emphasis on childhood behavior. We have seen it all! We employ several techniques to calm and cheer up even our most hesitant patients. The experience is child-centered—from our office décor to the way we interact with children. Our treatment area is an open bay with several chairs in one big room. This arrangement allows for a fun atmosphere and great learning experience.
Will I be with my child the entire visit?
Parents are allowed back and may peek in on their child at any point during the visit. However, because research shows children have a better dental experience when their parents aren’t visible to them during care, we ask parents to observe the care of children 3+ from a separate room or peek in. Children under age 3 will sit on their parent’s lap during the visit. We also invite you to come by our office prior to your child’s first visit to meet the staff and tour our office.
