AOMS Pediatric Dentistry is a unique, child-centered dental center that your child will love. We offer lots of entertaining activities to keep kids engaged and happy throughout their entire experience at our practice. Establishing a dental home for your child is a crucial step in maintaining their oral health. Choosing a kid-friendly dentist can make it easy and enjoyable for your child to return every six months for their regular cleanings.
For your child’s first visit, it’s a good idea to show up a bit early to allow enough time to fill out any necessary paperwork. We ask that new patients arrive at least 10 minutes early and bring the following items to your appointment:
- Your dental and medical insurance information
- A list of your child’s allergies and daily medications
- Your child’s medical history and a list of any existing medical conditions
Also, please note that a parent/guardian must remain in the office during their child’s entire appointment. Thank you for reviewing this important information, and we look forward to meeting you and your family!
When should my child first see a pediatric dentist?
We recommend scheduling a well baby visit either when the first tooth emerges or some time before the baby’s first birthday, whichever happens first. Even if your baby has a healthy mouth, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends establishing a home dentist before the first birthday. Children as young as two can develop cavities, and early childhood tooth decay is on the rise. Pediatric dentists can check the beginning stages of plaque buildup and tooth decay even before problems begin. Your pediatric dentist can also give advice for teething and other preventive care suggestions to keep your baby’s smile healthy.
If your child is older than one, it’s ok! Our practice treats children of all ages. We specialize in keeping children’s smiles healthy and teaching kids how to take care of their teeth on their own as they get older.
