Child’s First Visit to the Dentist. Your child should have his first dental checkup within 6 months of the first tooth appearance or by his or her first birthday. At this age a dentist performs only a visual exam, but early dental problems may be detected. Early checkups also provide the child with a safe first experience.
Exam and Cleanings. Your first visit to our office will involve a dental exam, an oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation. We also make an assessment of previous restorations and treatments, and evaluation of teeth surfaces for decay.
Oral Cancer Screening is part of our regular exam during your visit. We are committed to fighting and winning the battle against cancer with our patients, and championing early detection.
