Your First Visit

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that your child’s first dent visit be scheduled by his/her 1st birthday. By establishing care early in life our goal is to prevent dental decay so that your child can be “cavity free” for life. During an infant exam we will discuss oral hygiene techniques, diet, and fluoride exposure. Dr. Brea will examine your infant’s mouth and establish a preventative program with you and your child.

We understand that a first visit can be scary for your child and we do everything we can to make it a pleasant experience. A pleasant, comfortable, and fun first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. You can let your child know that Dr. Brea and her staff will explain everything they are doing and they are happy to answer any questions. Here at Schmidt Pediatric Dentistry we are experienced in dealing with children with anxiety and can explain treatment procedures in a positive and pleasant manner to avoid any anxious or negative feelings toward dentistry.

At the first visit, we will review your child’s medical and dental history, complete a comprehensive examination, and discuss any findings with you. We will also review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life! We look forward to meeting you and your child!
