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:

  • Laughing gas
  • Oral conscious sedation in drink form

Video: Child's First Visit at Dentistry for Children by Dr. Erik Rooklidge, UT Dentist

Since Dentistry for Children's patients are all kids, according to Dr. Erik Rooklidge, children should usually come to see our practice. The good thing about this, they are normally at the age of one. Because it's better to start checking up their teeth while they're young so in case there will be any problems or issues, we could figure it out as soon as possible. Let us take care of your kids!
