At The Dental Health Center, your child's first dental visit is a way to acquaint them with the environment and help establish good oral health habits early. Our children’s dentist in Aston, PA will count their teeth, give them a ride in the dental chair, and work to make your child feel at ease and happy to be at the dentist.

This initial visit is a way for our pediatric dentist to see how teeth are coming in and begin to monitor jaw development. Then, as time goes by, we introduce age-appropriate treatments, like fillings and teeth cleanings.

Preparing Your Child for the Dentist

We recommend talking to your child about what to expect when they visit the dentist. Let him or her know that a dental office is a fun place with friendly people who are always ready for a laugh or a conversation.

You can also talk to your child about their teeth and how it’s important to keep them healthy with the help of their new friend: the dentist!

Getting Yourself Ready for Your Child’s First Visit

Our pediatric dentist in Aston will always take the time to answer your questions and discuss your concerns. Think about the questions you’d like to ask, for example. Maybe you’d like information about the following:

  • Bottle feeding
  • Teething
  • First foods and chewing
  • Cleaning your child’s gums or first few teeth

Your child’s dentist can share information about nutrition and more!
