First Time Patients: What to Expect | Wilson, NC

The first dentist visit can be full of apprehension for both the child and the patient. Wilson Pediatric Dentistry works hard to ease that uncertainty and create a positive experience for your son or daughter that will have them excited to see the dentist.

Here’s what you can expect from your child’s first dental visit.

When Should You First Take Your Child Into Wilson Pediatric Dentistry?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests that your child has their first dental visit around their first birthday. This allows us to establish an early relationship with them, learn their unique needs, and build a plan for them.

What to Expect from Your First Visit

Pediatric dentistry is very different from adult dentistry. The focus of Pediatric Dentistry is developing a plan to promote healthy development and cavity prevention. We’ll work closely with you to learn about your child’s unique needs and create a helpful dental health routine.

Wilson’s Focus is on Your Child’s Well-Being

We strive to melt away your child’s fear with friendly, thoughtful, and attentive care. You are welcome to join us for the first examination.

Our office is designed to make your child comfortable. We avoid the cold feel and frightening language of a typical dentist’s office. The Wilson team is specially trained to work with infants, toddlers, and kids of all ages.
