At Smiles In Motion, we understand that children are not just small adults and that each child is unique.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly encourages the first dental visit by one year of age. Prevention of early cavities is the goal. To accomplish this, parents need to understand their child’ risk for developing cavities.
Infants to Toddlers
Until a child is preschool age, we don’t expect them to want to get into a dental chair on their own and cooperate. Our pediatric dentists will likely perform a lap to lap or knee to knee examination with the parent or caregivers help, in our consult rooms designed for this age group in mind.
Preschool to Teen
We want to gain your confidence and trust, so you are welcome to accompany your child back for their first visit with their dentist. Most children do best on their own, if you feel your child will do better without you present, you are still encouraged to take a tour of our office!
