You have paid us the greatest compliment by allowing us to provide dental care for your infant, child, or teenager.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that your toddler visit the dentist 6 months after the eruption of the first tooth. Although this might seem young, it is extremely important that newly erupted primary teeth receive proper dental care from the very beginning.
You can help make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Please review our list of DO'S AND DON'TS under Frequently Asked Questions to help set the stage for a successful dental visit.
Your child's first visit will include a complete examination performed by Dr. Yip. Digital radiographs may be obtained of your child's teeth. Dr. Yip may also employ a Diagnodent laser and intraoral camera for improving proper diagnosis of dental decay. We may perform a professional cleaning and fluoride treatment. Following the clinical examination, Dr. Yip will consult with you to address any concerns or answer any questions that you may have.
While you are visiting our rainforest themed office, your child is welcome to enjoy our animal exhibits, numerous toys, video games and movies over the dental chairs. You are welcome to accompany your child or just sit back with a beverage and websurf in our reception area.
