Your Child’s First Visit

Your Child's First Visit at Voorhees Pediatric Dentistry

Welcome to Voorhees Pediatric Dentistry in Voorhees, NJ! We're excited to partner with families to foster a lifetime of bright, healthy smiles. Your child's first visit to our practice is more than a routine teeth check-up. It's about creating a positive experience that shapes their view of dental care for years to come. With Dr. Dan Dinowitz at the helm, our goal is to make every visit enjoyable and educational.

A Lifetime of Healthy Smiles

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends scheduling your child's first dental visit by their first birthday or when their first tooth appears. Starting early can detect any issues and introduce dental care in a non-intimidating manner. Here at Voorhees Pediatric Dentistry, we aim to make this initial meeting a delightful experience!

What to Expect During the Visit

Your child's first visit isn't just about dentistry; it's all about building trust and comfort. Here's what you can expect:

  1. 1. Meet and Greet: Our team warmly welcomes your child and introduces them to Dr. Dan Dinowitz in a fun way.
  2. 2. Office Tour: We'll show you around to make the environment familiar and explain dental procedures.
  3. 3. Dental Health Check: Dr. Dan Dinowitz will gently examine your child's teeth, gums, and jaw for health and development.
  4. 4. Cleaning and Fluoride: A gentle cleaning to remove plaque and a fluoride treatment for cavity protection may be done.
  5. 5. Education: Dr. Dan Dinowitz can provide tailored advice on oral hygiene practices for you and your child to maintain good oral health at home.

Preparing for Your Child’s Visit

Getting ready can ensure your child's first visit to the dentist is a breeze. Here are a few helpful tips:

  • Chat with Your Child: Describe the upcoming visit in a positive light. For guidance, use children's books and videos on dentistry.
  • Timing is Key: Schedule the appointment when your child is usually well-rested and cooperative.
  • Pack Comfort Items: If your child has a favorite toy or blanket, remember to bring it along to provide extra comfort.
  • Keep Cool: Children are attuned to their parents' energy. Maintaining a sense of calm and positivity can create a more comforting environment for your child.
