We understand that a child’s first visit to the dentist is an important milestone, and it’s our mission to make it a positive, memorable experience. Our team is dedicated to creating a warm, welcoming, and fun environment for your family.

Before Your Visit

To ensure a smooth and efficient first visit, we ask that you complete the new patient forms that will be sent to you prior to your appointment. This will help us get to know your child and understand their health history better, allowing us to provide the most personalized care possible.

What to Expect

Upon your arrival at Metropolitan Pediatric Dentistry, you’ll be greeted by our friendly front office team who will help you get settled in. Your child’s comfort and ease are our top priorities, so we’ve designed our office to be kid-friendly and engaging.

Here’s a brief overview of what your first visit might look like:

Office Tour: We’ll start with a short tour of our office so you and your child can feel more at home with our surroundings. Our goal is to familiarize your child with our space, making the dental office a fun place to visit.

Meet the Team: You’ll meet with our compassionate team who specialize in pediatric dentistry. We’re here to answer any questions and address concerns you or your child might have.

Dental Examination: Our pediatric dentist will gently examine your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw to assess oral health and discuss any findings with you. We use child-friendly language and explanations, helping your child understand the importance of taking care of their teeth.

Cleaning: If your child is comfortable, we will also perform a gentle cleaning to remove any plaque or tartar and polish their teeth, leaving their smile bright and fresh.

Education on Oral Hygiene: We will provide tips on oral hygiene practices for home, including brushing, flossing, and the right diet for maintaining a healthy smile. We’re also more than happy to discuss any aspects of your child’s dental health and how to foster a positive attitude toward dental care.

Before you leave, we’ll schedule any necessary follow-up appointments and provide you with a summary of the visit. Our team is committed to being a partner in your child’s oral health journey, and we encourage open communication between visits.
