Your Child’s First Pediatric Dental Visit
On your child’s first dental visit, our pediatric dental team will take a full health history. In addition, our pediatric dental hygienist will complete a pediatric cleaning to remove any plaque and tartar that may lead to gum disease, and check for several other tooth issues such as cavities and bad breath. We will also polish all your child’s teeth. If necessary, we will take X-rays and photos that can help us diagnose problems that may be undetected. Dr. Bui will then conduct a comprehensive pediatric dental exam, looking for signs of developmental problems or disease. Dr. Bui will then have a personal conversation with the parent(s) or caregiver(s) to explain her findings and discuss dental care next steps.
