Your Child’s First Visit
By: Dr. Ng | June 21st, 2018
Parents always ask when their children should start seeing me.
I recommend as soon as they begin teething. This may seem quite young but I want to begin familiarizing them with me, my team and the smells and sounds of the office.
I also want to educate parents on proper tooth brushing techniques and provide information on how diet can affect their child’s oral health.
The very first meeting, depending on the child, may simply involve sitting in the chair, showing them the instruments, and playing games and laughing. We may not even get a chance to look into their mouths!
Having their first visit be a good experience and building a positive groundwork for the future is always our goal.
