We are thrilled to provide pediatric dentistry in Battle Ground, Washington. We believe that children should visit their dentist from an early age to learn about proper dental hygiene and to have better oral health in the future. Our dentists recommend that your child visit our office within six month of their first tooth growing in. The first visit will be very short and will involve little treatment. We want your child to be able to meet our dentists in a friendly environment. Early dental visits will help your child feel comfortable in the dental chair.
Our dentists may ask you to hold your child in your lap during their exam to make them feel more comfortable. You may also be asked to wait in the reception area for part of the visit so your child can grow to trust our dentists.
Our dentists will check your child’s teeth for signs of decay, examine their bite, and monitor the gums, jaws, and tissues. Our dentists may ask our hygienist to clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride. Visit the following pages for more information:
