FAQs

When Should I Bring My Child in for Their First 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!

What things can I do to help the first visit go smoothly?

1. Talk about the dentist and let your child know he/she will be meeting them soon
2. Read books or watch your child's favorite show about visiting the dentist
3. Show your child our website- the office, Dr. Nasem and staff pictures- so they can become familiar
4. Refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as "needle", "shot", "drill" or "hurt" - we do not use these words in our office
