Our children's dentist in West Greeley recommends that your child should come to see us as soon as their first baby tooth emerges, and no later than their first birthday.
Getting your child acquainted with early visits to their children's dentist at Norco Family Dental allows them to acclimate and feel comfortable around the dentist, and it prevents dental anxiety from forming. Kids can feel anxious when they're unsure about their environment, which is why it's a good idea to be gentle and slow, and allow them to get used to the dental office at their own speed.
Your Child's First Visit to Our Greeley, CO Dentist
Your child's first dental visit to Norco Family Dental is mainly to let them adjust and get used to the idea of oral health. We don't want to make your child to feel pressured or forced to do something that makes them feel uncomfortable, so we are gentle and take our time. We never want any of our patients of any ages to feel fear or stress.
Children's dentistry in West Greeley focuses on building confidence and preventing dental anxiety. Once we are ready to start cleaning and examining their precious teeth, your son or daughter will have already established trust with Dr. Stewart and Dr. Buffington, and won't think twice about allowing them to perform their jobs.
During each children's dental visit, we monitor your child's baby teeth and ensure there are no dental health issues, especially when their permanent teeth are gearing up for their appearance. We want to make sure your child doesn't lose any of their baby teeth prematurely, which can lead to issues once adult teeth start emerging.
