At Fullerton Orthodontics, we are committed to ensuring that your child has a comfortable and enjoyable first visit to the dentist. We understand that your child may feel anxious about their first trip to the dentist, so we make it our goal to be sensitive to their needs while providing quality care.
YOUR FIRST VISIT IS ALL ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S COMFORT, HAPPINESS, AND HEALTH.
When your child first visits our office, we will first review their dental and medical history and take X-rays of their teeth and mouth. Next, the doctor will sit down with you and your child to discuss treatment, answer questions, and create a plan that works for you. During your child’s next visit, a hygienist will clean and polish their teeth while checking for signs of cavities, tooth decay, or gingivitis.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING THESE WITH YOU TO YOUR CHILD'S FIRST APPOINTMENT:
- Insurance card
- Completed patient information form
REGULAR CHECKUPS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF MAINTAINING A HEALTHY SMILE!
According to the recommendation of the American Dental Association, children should visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and teeth cleanings to help their teeth and gums develop healthily. When scheduling your child’s appointment, please remember that an appointment can last between 20 and 40 minutes.
