What To Expect During Your Visit
Our office, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), The American Dental Association (ADA), and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), recommends that your child visit a pediatric dentist by his or her first birthday! Children who established a “Dental Home” at an early age are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine oral healthcare.
The first visit to any dental offices is nerve-wracking and scary, but our team is here to ensure that your child’s first visit is simple, fun, and stress-free! Each child is unique, and we understand his/her curiosity and apprehension; hence, the first visit is designed to make your child feel comfortable and establish trust. At the Art of Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that parents play a vital role in making the dentist’s first visit enjoyable and positive. We invite you to be present with your child during the visit and highly encourage you to ask any questions or address any concerns you have about your child’s oral healthcare.
Whether this is your child’s first visit to the dentist or this is your first visit to our office, it is vital that you and your child feel comfortable and begins developing a trusting rapport with Dr. Ong and our staff. Our educated and knowledgeable staff members are experienced and trained to work with children of all ages to carefully explain and help each child participate in activities designed to help build their self-confidence!
Our mission is to provide your child with the best, personalized, and safe dental care in a kid-friendly environment. We are honored that you are considering our practice to provide dental care for your child. We look forward to meeting you and your child and officially welcoming you to our practice.
If you have any questions or would like more information about our services, please don’t hesitate to call or email our office!
Your child will enjoy healthy dental habits when they use these Motivational Charts. Encourage regular brushing or help them break the thumbsucking habit.
