What you can expect for Your Child’s First Dental Visit! Children’s dentistry is so important and you can never start thinking about healthy teeth too early. At Oxford Family Dental, your Port Coquitlam family dentist, we recommend that patients come for their first visit at our dental practice six months after the arrival of their first tooth!
Why do kids need to come for their first visit at such an early age?
We want kids to visit us six months after the arrival of their first tooth because this way we can monitor their progress starting in the very early years. Plus your child will quickly become comfortable with our family friendly environment and exceptional staff making future visits even easier for you and your family.
Pediatric or children’s dentistry is the specialization of dentistry on children. That means we can care for your children’s teeth and are able to meet their specific patient needs. Visiting us early on also establishes a helpful relationship between you and your Oxford Family Dental dentist which will help promote healthy and proper oral care techniques for your children.
At Oxford Family Dental, we love meeting your children for the first time and making their first ever dental visit a smooth and comfortable experience for them, and are proud to begin leading your children on a path to proper dental hygiene.
At Oxford Family Dental we have fun programs to keep your children interested in their dental care as they grow older. We have a No Cavity Kids Club that aims to show recognition to those special children and parents who demonstrate excellent home dental care. Kids from 1-18yrs of age who present with no cavities on their routine cleaning visit, will have the chance to win a $50 gift card to Toys R Us or Cineplex. One winner is pulled at the end of each month!
We are happy to help you and your children on your path to dental success. Stop by our Port Coquitlam dental practice for your first visit, we can’t wait to meet you!
