At Treehouse Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we are focused on setting your child up for a lifetime of dental health. We strive to make every visit stress-free and easy, so there is no need to be anxious for your appointment! Your child’s first dental visit will be focused on getting to know you and your little one and establishing a trustful bond between Dr. Nasem and your child. By tailoring your dental experience to your unique needs, we are able to deliver a better overall quality of care.
At your first visit, Dr. Nasem will discuss recommendations for diet and oral hygiene, and help you establish a great at-home oral care routine providing tips and tricks for brushing your child’s teeth. As a mother herself, Dr. Nasem knows how hard it can be to keep up with your child’s oral care, and she takes a compassionate approach to every visit.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that every child visits the dentist by their first birthday or when their first tooth erupts. Bringing your child to our office for routine appointments from a young age will help you stay on top of your child’s oral health and keep you informed about their unique needs as they grow older.
Changes in oral development occur very quickly in the early years of childhood and it’s important to be aware of these changes. During routine visits, Dr. Nasem will track your child’s oral health over time to help you understand how best to care for their teeth. Contact us today to set up your first appointment!

3. Show your child our website- the office, Dr. Nasem and staff pictures- so they can become familiar
