Whether they are two or twelve, children are an important part of the Ethos Dental family. We will work hard to customize a child-friendly treatment plan that will minimize your child’s fears and maximize their comfort.
Infants and Toddlers
We recommend bringing your child in for their first visit sometime between their first and second birthdays. Our primary goal in that initial exam is to build trust so they have positive associations with the dentist. With that in mind, we won’t force your child to do anything they don’t want to do. They can even sit on your lap if that makes them more comfortable. A first visit will generally include:
- Tooth count
- Gum exam
- Quick cleaning with a brush
- Gentle fluoride application
- Tooth care instructions for parents
