What happens during the first visit?
The first visit is very important as this can set a precedent for the rest of his/her dental checkups. That’s why your caring dentist Mandurah and staff make your child feel at home. We have options to ease dental anxiety such as the happy gas. This is completely safe for your little ones.
The first visit will be a regular dental check-up. You will have to fill out your child’s information, this will be the start of his/her dental records.
Your dentist will check for early signs of tooth decay. This is common among children as they are very fond of sweets. The jaw will be checked for signs of bite problems, gummy smile, and misalignment.
At the end of the appointment, we will also be giving oral hygiene tips to improve your child’s dental health. This also includes our recommended diet and nutrition for healthy teeth.
