Child’s First Visit

After your child’s first tooth arrives, their first dentist visit should not be far behind. With that first tooth, the rest of his or her smile will quickly emerge. Our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville believes it is a privilege to be part of a momentous milestone in a child’s life, their first dental visit. Monitoring your child’s smile development is vital to ensuring good oral health as the rest of their smile arrives. Our pediatric dentist and support team welcome you to come in for your child’s first visit. We offer a complimentary first dental checkup for children under 24 months to introduce you and your child to our practice.

What to Expect on Your Child’s First Dental Visit

It is important to our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville to provide a friendly, fun and comfortable atmosphere for our young patients. You can expect to be warmly welcomed by our staff, as it is our goal to help both you and your child feel more at ease during your child’s first dental visit.

Once your child is made comfortable, Dr. Chong will complete the initial exam of the teeth, gums and mouth. If there are any detected issues, Dr. Chong will discuss further treatment or monitoring options. Please feel free to ask questions and voice your concerns. Dr. Chong will take the time to answer any questions you have and discuss the best dental care options for your child, including home care. A cleaning, fluoride treatment and x-rays may also be performed as part of our commitment to preventive dentistry.

How to Prepare for Your Child’s First Visit

The best way to prepare for your child’s first dental visit is not to “prepare” at all. Believe it or not, putting too much emphasis on this visit may make you and your child more nervous. While it is understandable that you want to help your child be ready for a new experience, sometimes it is best to approach the visit with a relaxed attitude to help your child feel at ease.

Our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville has helped many parents and children through their first dental visit. We will make you and your child feel comfortable. It is our goal to make this first visit fun and interactive for your child so that future visits become easier and easier for both of you.

Can I Accompany My Child?

We welcome parents and expect that you will want to be there for your child’s first dental visit. This visit is important for you as well as your child. As your child grows older, you can decide when is the right time to let him or her fly solo during their visit, while you relax in our comfortable waiting area.

Is your child ready for their first dental visit? Make sure it is special by visiting a true pediatric dentist. Contact our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville to schedule your child’s first dental visit.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
