Keeping Your Little Ones Smiling
Getting your child to the dentist for their regular 6-month checkup is one of the most important parts of setting them up for a lifetime of oral health. Kids grow up so fast, and the state of their teeth and gums can change significantly between checkups, making it all the more essential for them to receive regular dental exams. Additionally, starting dental treatment early does wonders for fostering a positive relationship between your child and their pediatric dentist in San Diego, and encourages the formation of good oral hygiene habits that will continue into adulthood and throughout the rest of their lives.
Your Child’s First Checkup
When your child first arrives at Sprouting Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, they’ll be met by our cheerful, welcoming team, and get to experience all the fun of our whimsical San Diego office. Once back in the operatory, your child’s teeth will be gently and thoroughly cleaned. You’ll then get to meet Dr. Wendy as she takes the time to get to know her little patient, performing a comprehensive exam while going over their medical and dental history with you. She’ll go over all of the dental options available, and guide you toward the most gentle, conservative treatment plan, keeping your child’s unique developmental stage in mind throughout the process.
We’ll never push unnecessary treatment, and always focus on quality preventive care and education for our patients and their parents to empower them to take the dental health of their families into their own hands.
When your child returns for further treatment, or just their next 6-month appointment, they’ll be greeted with the same warm welcome from the familiar faces of their previous visit. They’ll get their pearly whites gently cleaned and polished before Dr. Wendy performs her thorough exam. She’ll continue on to discuss her findings with you and your child, tailoring her language for the age of your little one, and make recommendations for additional care if necessary. As your child continues to visit us, they will become more comfortable with the team and the office, and hopefully more excited about taking care of their dental health!
