Kids love it at Perry Family Dentistry. All of our rooms are private. Kids get to try all the stuff and get involved. A child’s first dental visit needs to be as enjoyable as possible, so they don’t fear the dentist. It is not natural for children to fear the dentist, but they can be afraid of the unknown. The words we use to describe each treatment are pleasant, non-frightening, and simple. Our #1 goal is to make both you and your child feel comfortable and relaxed from the moment you arrive.

What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry deals with the oral health of children from infancy to adolescence. Pediatric dentists are specially trained to address the dental needs of children, infants, and toddlers. Patients of all ages receive preventive care, diagnosis, and treatment for their oral health problems.
As early as their first birthday, children should be seen by a pediatric dentist, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Early detection and treatment of problems are easier when a child sees a dentist. Dentists who treat children are also trained to deal with behavioral challenges. Educating parents on how to best care for their child’s teeth and mouth can help them prevent dental problems in the future.
You should take your child to the pediatric dentist regularly to keep his or her teeth and mouth healthy.
What should I expect for my child's first appointment?
During the first visit, the procedure will depend on your child’s age, personality, and specific needs. Before your child receives a complete examination, cleaning, and fluoride treatment, he may need a few minutes to get acquainted with the room and people. There will be a discussion of preventive measures. Our goal is to keep the number of X-rays to a bare minimum so we do not routinely take them. They are only taken when a specific dental situation warrants it.
