We want your experience with Teddy Bear Children's Dentistry to be a happy one, starting with your child's first visit. That is why we have only a few things you need to do and we happen to have listed below: It is really easy. Let's get started!
Your first visit is all about your child- his or her comfort, happiness, and health
Your child will receive a thorough examination with Dr. Da Fonseca, where she'll discuss results, and offer recommendations for how to best care for your child's teeth and much more. Oral health education, tooth eruption, brushing techniques, flossing, healthy snacks and fluoride treatment are just some of the topics discussed during your child’s initial cleaning and exam appointment.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your child’s first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child visit the dentist for an initial oral evaluation within 6 months of the eruption of his/her first baby tooth and no later than their first birthday. It is important to start children early in the right direction to good dental hygiene and building healthy, life-long habits.
We understand that your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember that an appointment can last between 40 and 60 minutes
