What will my child’s first dental appointment be like?
The main focus of your child’s first dental appointment is to familiarize him or her with the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist office. Our goal is for your child to realize that the dentist is not a scary place—nor is sitting in the dental chair. We want your child to feel comfortable while they are here—and we want them to look forward to coming back!
Although Dr. Amaya will do a quick examination, you should know that he will not do anything that upsets your child. If you have any concerns or questions about your child’s oral health, he will take the time needed to talk with you.
He will also offer some age-appropriate information on the importance of proper brushing and flossing. If your child is very young, he will share with parents what they can do to ensure their child is practicing good oral care at home.
Our pediatric dentistry office in Del City, OK offers creature comforts to make kids happy to be here. We also provide advanced dental technology to make their time in the dental chair efficient. We want to set your child up for a lifetime of regular visits to the dentist!
