Your child should visit the dentist by the first birthday (first visit during the first year)
As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry as well as by our office, your child should visit the dentist by the first birthday (first visit during the first year). This can provide an early opportunity to diagnose any potential dental conditions. This is also an opportunity to discuss with the doctor on how to maintain good dental hygiene and establish good dental health habit for the child. For example, Dr. Su will discuss diet, fluoride, finger and pacifier habits, and tooth eruption with the accompanying parent.
We provide a fun environment for the child so that they can relax during the visit. Child TV programs are shown on the ceiling hanging apple and basketball shaped TVs. We also invite you to accompany the child throughout the visit to provide assurance.
The first visit can be made a more enjoyable experience by the joint effort of our staff and the parents further. Please read the tips we have written on our blog.
Please provide us with your email address so that the forms for your child’s first appointment can be sent securely to you. The forms can be filled and submitted online. Filling them in beforehand can significantly reduce waiting period for the child.
A guardian should accompany the child to the appointment and remain in the office during the appointment. If this is not possible, please call our office so that we can either reschedule or obtain proper authorization for treatment from the child’s guardian.
