Info For Parents

It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday.  A child's initial dental visit often sets the tone for subsequent attitudes about dental care. These early first impressions even set expectations about visiting the dentist as an adult.  At Smile Galaxy Pediatric Dentistry we want your child to have a positive and exciting experience so they will enjoy visiting the dentist for a lifetime! ​

Parents often wonder what to say to their small child prior to their first pediatric dental visit. It is important to convey good feelings to your child about dental visits being part of growing up.  Some parents experienced tramatic dental visits as kids and have negative emotions about going to the dentist themselves. Please try not to transfer these fears to your child. It's best to let your child build their own perceptions and expectationsabout going to the pediatric dentist for themselves. Keep the details of your child’s appointment to a calm and casual conversation. 

Many parents with small children find it helpful to mention that the "Smile Galaxy" dentistsare very special people who help kids all day! They love to look at and count teeth so that their friends have healthy mouths for chewing food. They are always gentle and very nice. ”  You as parents play a vital role in making their dental experience a fun one! We take great pride in providing excellent care for your child.
