Your First Visit

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child’s first dental visit should be by their first birthday. The first visit is usually educational, while future appointments will give your child a typical dental examination and cleaning.

We want to make sure your first visit to Pasternack Pediatric Dental is very easy and informational. We will address a wide range of issues to gain insight into your child’s needs and make their dental experience pleasant and enjoyable.

We will need your child’s complete medical history, noting any potential problems like tissue irregularities, dietary staining, enamel decalcification, among others. We will go over their diet and how you can make sure your child’s teeth are healthy and taken care of properly.

It is important to talk to your child about the dentist, and any feelings they may have about their first visit. Spend time to discuss the positives of their first dental experience and what they can gain from the trusted staff at Pasternack Pediatric Dental.

Our staff is always friendly and wants to make sure your child has the best experience possible. We are trained to deal with children and work hard to ensure their safety and enjoyment. If you would like, we invite you to stay with your child during their first appointment and any future examinations.
