Your Child’s First Dental Visit

What should I expect on my child's first visit?

If it’s time to book your child’s first dental visit, contact your Sandy, UT dentists at Dentistry for Children for quality care! For your convenience, we have dental offices in Sandy, UT, Murray, UT, and West Valley, UT!

Dr. Erik Rooklidge, our other Sandy, UT dentists, and our team treat patients as young as a year old, including those with special needs.

The Importance Of Your Child’s First Dental Visit

When you bring your little one to Dentistry for Children for the first time, we will do everything we can to make his or her “happy visit” a pleasant one.

By showing your children that there’s nothing to fear, we can help them have a positive association with the dentist for years to come. This will encourage them to maintain a beautiful smile and optimal oral health as they grow up!

Kid-Friendly Team, Comfort Options, Dental Sedation

You’ll be happy to know that our calming, soothing team has undergone training in treating children to ensure a good visit. We will spend extra time with your kids during their first dental visit so we can help them feel safe and comfortable. This will also allow us to get to know your children better to improve their quality of care!

To make their first dental visit more fun, we also offer comfort options for children of all ages, including:

  • Playhouses in our reception area
  • Video game systems for your little ones to play before seeing our team
  • TVs in every care room for watching movies while we work

If all that isn’t enough to put your child at ease, we also offer options for dental sedation. Depending on the age of your child, the treatment they need, and their level of fear, we may recommend:

  • Nitrous oxide, better known as “laughing gas”
  • Oral conscious sedation in drink form
  • IV sedation

Don’t settle for anything less than the kid-friendly First Dental Visit services from your trusted Sandy, UT dentists at Dentistry for Children – call today to schedule. You can also use our online form.
