Creating a positive experience for children during first time dental appointments will have a lasting impact on their dental health and overall general attitude about oral care. Attending regular six month visits routinely and focusing on preventive care will get your child comfortable with the process and ensure that any dental health issues are caught in their early stages. Our encouraging, educational, and empowering approach at Maple Grove Pediatric Dentistry will also help decrease any dental anxieties, and increase their chances of being proactive throughout adulthood when it comes to establishing healthy dental habits.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children should have their first dental appointment before their first birthday, or when their first tooth erupts (whichever comes first). First visits help establish familiarity and a sense of trust and comfort so your child can grow up looking forward to visiting the dentist. At Maple Grove Pediatric Dentistry, we’re committed to making every visit educational and comforting to establish a proper oral health routine to last a lifetime.
Dr. Matt and the rest of the Maple Grove Pediatric Dentistry team are excited to meet you and your child! Based on your child’s age, we will gently assess their smile and oral development, conduct a thorough cleaning, provide helpful tips for a healthy smile, and answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s dental care. For our new patients, we also offer a $199* special which includes:
