We use kid friendly language and a tell-show-do approach to explain what we are doing so that your child is aware and engaged in every step of the visit.
Here are some key suggestions to prepare you and your child for his or her first dental visit:

  • Tell your child about their upcoming visit to the pediatric dentist.
  • Explain to your child that the pediatric dentist is here to help them have healthy teeth and gums.
  • Please remember to be positive, enthusiastic and convey a sense of goodwill about your child’s upcoming visit.
  • We welcome parents or caregivers in the dental room during your child’s first dental visit. Your presence can be extremely reassuring to your child.
  • Please allow us to conduct the visit. Kindly allow us to explain and answer all questions regarding the dental tools and equipment to your child. We will explain these things in a kid-friendly and non-intimidating manner.


First time experience was wonderful. Staff was really nice and the dentist was really caring. My two year old cried throughout the first dentist checkup but they really try to make him comfortable. Will update again on after a couple of visits =)

Such a wonderful experience. This was our first time at the dentist and I expected my son to be nervous and screaming. Instead, he smiled and stayed calm. The staff here go above and beyond to give each person a nice experience. I’m excited to go back.
