What to Expect and How to Prepare Your Kids for Their First-Time Dental Visit in Greensboro, NC

When your baby’s first teeth come in, it opens a whole new world. The type of food they can eat, caring for these new teeth and regular dental checkups all become a reality. When that first tooth comes in, it is time for that first dental visit. Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry welcome all families in Greensboro, NC for that first-time kids’ dental visit. Dr. Isharani wants to provide quality kids dental care while providing parents with the tools and knowledge needed to adequately care for their children’s dental health.

Recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry state that a child’s first dental visit should occur when that first tooth breaks through, or around their first birthday, whichever comes first.

Preparing for the First Visit

When getting your child ready for their first dental visit, it is important to make sure they are well-rested and have been fed so that they are not hungry. This will go a long way in making sure your child is in good temperament. Make sure you are aware of your dentist’s copay and what your dental insurance will and will not cover. Finally, bring a list that has any current medications that your child is currently taking. If your child is older when going in for that first appointment, it may be a good idea to discuss the upcoming experience with them and see if they have any anxiety over the visit. Do what you can to ease these anxieties or fears.

What to Expect

During the first visit, the dentist will typically provide education for parents on how to properly care for the child’s teeth and gums. Pacifier use may also be discussed as well as what nutrition is proper for maintaining healthy teeth. Brushing techniques will be demonstrated and then, in the end, the parent(s) should have the opportunity to ask any questions that have not been answered during the course of the appointment.

If your child is ready for that first dental appointment, Dr. Sona Isharani and the staff at Triad Pediatric Dentistry would love to welcome you. To schedule an appointment, please call (336) 804-8668.
