Pediatric Dentistry Services
We recommend that you make your child's first dental appointment within their first year. It's important to prepare your child emotionally for his or her first visit. Let them know that visiting the dentist is a positive part of growing up. Reassure your child that the dentist will be gentle, and won't hurt them. If you expect your child to react well and enjoy their first dental visit, chances are he or she will.
When you do make your first visit to Vingelis & Lee, we'll introduce your child to the dental team. He or she will be given time to see the office and get comfortable before the examination. You're more than welcome to stay with your child during the first exam, and once it's complete, we'll discuss our findings, give our recommendations and give you a cost estimate. Don't be upset if your child cries. It's normal for children to fear things that are strange to them. We'll do all we can to calm their fears as quickly as possible.
After the first visit, we suggest you stay in the reception room and viewing area. It helps us establish a direct and close rapport with your child. Our purpose is to gain your child's confidence, and with your help and cooperation, your child can have successful and stress-free dental visits for years to come!
