Your Child’s First Dental Visit

Dr. Greg Kerbel on keeping children comfortable during their first appointment Read Transcript

If it’s time for your child’s first dental visit, contact our team today! Dr. Kerbel, Dr. Callier and Dr. Margolin will help your child establish a positive association with the dentist for years to come at our Garland, TX dentist office!

What We Will Do During Your Child’s First Dental Visit

To ensure your child is comfortable with us, we will take our time to get to know them and introduce ourselves. We can even provide a fun so your little one can see some of the cool gadgets we use! So they won’t feel rushed, we’ll work at your kid’s pace!

One thing we recommend during your child’s first dental visit is for a parent or guardian to stick around during the appointment. A loved one with a reassuring smile and a hand to hold will help your little one feel more relaxed!

When it comes time to actually care for your child’s dental health, we will provide a gentle but thorough dental cleaning and exam and check for any signs of tooth decay or other oral health concerns.

Then, we will discuss any potential issues with you and recommend treatments to keep the littlest smiles in your family healthy and beautiful! We can even provide tips to discourage thumb sucking!

Comfort Options For Your Children

At our Garland, TX dental office, we provide a number of amenities just for your little ones, including:

  • A wagon with toys for your child to choose from after their appointment.
  • Coloring books
  • TVs so they can watch their favorite cartoons
  • Safe sedation is also available when needed

With our help, your child may even look forward to their next dental appointment!
