The AAPD recommends your child visit the dentist by their first birthday. This is to help you set up healthy dental routines and for Drs. Morgan, Allman, and Compton to check for any developmental issues. You will be with your child the entire visit, easing you and them. From there, we will discuss with you what treatments may been recommended as you decide when to continue.
As children grow older and are more aware of their visits to Rockwall Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that while you are talking about the dentist, refrain from using words like needle, pull, drill, or hurt– really any word that could cause unnecessary fear. Our Drs. Allman, Morgan, and Compton are trained to use words that convey the same message, but are non-frightening to your child.
We like to set up an expectation of fun in our office that gives kids something to look forward to at their next visit. We also like to view how your child feels being in the dentist’s office, and try not to overwhelm them initially. We’re excited to provide your child with a happy and memorable first visit with our pediatric dentists in Rockwall and Heath, Texas. Please call 972-771-9933 to set up an appointment.
