Children's Dentistry of Manatee

First Visit

Your child’s first dental visit is all about them…

During your child’s first visit, we will review their dental and medical history forms. We will discuss diet and home hygiene practices to ensure your child is on the right track. You will learn all about your child’s growth, development, and upcoming dental milestones.

Your child will be introduced to our dental office with care and compassion.  The approach at your child’s first dental visit will be tailored to them as some children may be more curious or anxious than others. Their teeth will be cleaned, examined and a Fluoride treatment is recommended.  Age-appropriate X-rays will be taken and discussed with you in detail.

The first dental visit is not just about checking for cavities, it is about creating an experience. It is laying the foundation for positive dental visits over the course of your child’s lifetime. We pride ourselves on providing the absolute best initial dental experience for your child.

Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your child’s first appointment:

Your completed patient information form, insurance card & New Patient Forms

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining Your Child’s healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
