Keeping You and Your Child Happy at the Dentist

We often call your little one’s first few appointments “happy visits” because they are more about getting to know us than offering treatment. And similar to early trips to the pediatrician, we’ll establish a baseline so we can accurately monitor your child’s development as they grow.

We’ll also take all the time you need to discuss teething, cleaning your baby’s teeth and any other issues you’d like to address.

As more teeth come in, we’ll make sure your child’s teeth and mouth are healthy and their bite looks good. We’ll clean and polish their teeth and introduce preventive care like dental sealants, which we apply to back teeth to help prevent decay.

Making Sure Your Child’s First Dental Visit Goes Well

Because we see so many young patients at our Jackson, MI dentist office, we’ve got some tips for ensuring visits with your little ones go smoothly. Among them:

  • Book your visit at a time of day when your child is normally well-rested. Early mornings work well for many kids, and we open at 7 a.m. four days a week.
  • Bring a family member or friend to assist, so you can concentrate on your discussions with our doctors.
  • Write down any questions prior to your visit so you won’t forget to ask.
