North Royalton Pediatric Dentistry

Your Child's First Visit

Your Child's
First Visit

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests finding a “dental home” for your child no later than age one, or when the first tooth appears, whichever occurs first. Dr. Amberlee Taylor and the incredible team of pediatric dental professionals at North Royalton Pediatric Dentistry strongly believe that a child’s first experience at the dentist can set the tone for the success of their oral health for many years to come. Therefore, the first visit is focused on building a relationship and rapport with your child. We focus on helping children to relax and approach their care in a way that fosters trust

Preparing For
Your First Visit

Preparing For
Your First Visit

Before your child’s first visit to our office, we suggest preparing them by discussing the appointment using age-appropriate language. We encourage you to avoid passing along any of your own fear that you may have regarding visiting the dentist. Plan your visit in the same way you would talk about an exciting event like a party. You should avoid words with negative connotation such as hurt, needle, pain, drill, etc. Instead, focus on meeting new people, have a fun time, and showing off an amazing smile.
