DENTISTRY FOR KIDS
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Your Child’s First Dental Cleaning Appointment
We will count their teeth, show them how to brush, and talk about how important it is to take care of their teeth. One of our Hygienists will gently clean your child’s teeth. We explain everything as we go. We are a hands-on type of office with our kiddos. Your child will be able to touch, smell and try everything we are going to use in their mouth. We put fun glasses to keep the ” sunshine light” out of their eyes. “Mr. Thirsty”, our suction is used in their hand to let them feel that sensation before putting it into their mouth. We polish their fingers to feel our ” Tooth tickler”. One of Our dentists, Dr. Trenton Paffenroth will also assess their oral health and can discuss with you any concerns with crowding, occlusion (bite), or risk of cavities to ensure they are developing appropriately.
