Child’s First Visit By Age 1 Milton, GA

Child’s First Visit By Age 1

One of the milestones in a child’s life is their first trip to the dentist. Our experienced, caring team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry are ready to welcome you and your child when it comes time for their first dental checkup and other pediatric dental services. We recommend children have their first dental exam before 12 months to ensure that they are on the right path to a beautiful, healthy smile.

What to Expect on Your Child’s First Visit

During your child’s first visit with our experienced pediatric dentist Dr. Justin Chong, we will do a thorough examination of the mouth, teeth and gums. Pediatric dentistry is focused on preventive measures to ensure ongoing dental health. Dr. Chong will be examining the health, placement and growth of the primary teeth, and provide a consultation to you as a parent on how to best care for your child’s teeth and the best treatment plan for the years to come.

We want both you and your child to be as comfortable as possible for your first visit. In most cases, the parent is more nervous about the visit than the child. To help your child have a great first visit to our office, we suggest not focusing too much attention on the upcoming dentist appointment. It is common for well-meaning parents to try and prepare their children for the appointment, only to make their child more wary of going to the dentist. Dr. Chong is an excellent pediatric dentist that is experienced in working with small children and making them feel at ease during their first visit.

To schedule your child’s first dental care appointment with a specialized pediatric dentist, contact Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry today. We will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding the first visit to our office.

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...

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!

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.
