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.
