Our practice is committed to provide you and your family with safe, gentle, and high-quality dental care. We understand that your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to children's needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing you with the best care possible. Our friendly staff and doctor will explain all the dental care processes and answer questions in a language that even the youngest child can understand.
Your first visit is all about your child — his or her comfort, happiness, and health.
During your child’s first visit, we will:
- Review dental and medical history forms
- Take X-rays of the teeth and mouth
- Clean and polish your child’s teeth, checking the teeth and gums for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis
- Oral hygiene and diet instruction
- Orthodontic evaluation
After the checkup and teeth cleaning are complete, the doctor will discuss clinical and X-ray findings with you and will help you to create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
Our office is a ‘Fun Zone’
At Purcellville Pediatric Dentistry, we have designed our dental office with children in mind, including a children’s play room, where our patients can watch movies and play video games while waiting. Following each appointment, the children are rewarded with toys from a special treasure chest. We also offer a “no cavities club” rewards program to encourage our young patients to keep up with their good home dental practices between visits.
Getting to know your teeth is fun!
