Your Child’s Visit
At Taylor Dentistry, our goal is to provide  your child with the best dental care while  maintaining a friendly, non-threatening  environment.  In addition, we feel it is equally  important to keep all parents informed about their  child's dental health.  Following checkups, our  doctors speak with parents to explain exam  findings, oral hygiene tips, and any treatment  needed.     At your child's first appointment, whether it's  their first visit to our office or the first ever visit to  the dentist, we will explain and show your child  using simple, non-threatening terms.  This  technique, called "tell-show-do", has been a  proven method to allow children to become comfortable and familiar in the dental setting.   Maintaining communication with our young patients and their parents allows us to have  relationships that build trust and understanding.  Ultimately, this leads to positive, enjoyable  experiences at the dentist now and for a lifetime.  
What happens at the first dental visit?  At your child's first visit, we will check the teeth for decay, check the gums and soft tissues,  examine your child's bite.  If indicated we will take x-rays.  We will usually clean the teeth and give  the child a fluoride treatment.                                                                                                                All procedures will be explained to the patient in age appropriate terms.  Following the  examination, we will discuss all of the findings with the parent, discuss prevention strategies  individualized for the child, and answer any questions you may have. 
When should I schedule my child's first visit to the dentist?  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child is seen by 6 months  after his/her first tooth erupts or by 1 year of age, whichever comes first.  The reason the AAPD  recommends dental examinations this early is to prevent dental disease.  We will discuss  strategies on toothbrushing, type of toothpaste to use, snacking, and other issues that can be very  helpful in preventing future dental problems.                                                                                       
How can I prepare my child for their first dental  appointment? Do's: 1. Do tell your child about the appointment and use a positive approach. 2. Do show your child pictures of the office on our website 3. Do speak in "matter of fact" terms. Don'ts: 1. Don't make too big an issue about visiting the dentist. 2. Don't discuss difficult visits that you have had at the dentist. 3. Don't use terms like ‘shot’, ‘hurt’, and ‘drill’.
