The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommend that children receive their first dental check-up by the age of 1. Informing your child about their first dental visit is very helpful. We will get to know your child and help them to feel comfortable in the office by explaining what will happen during their visit, and showing them the tools and instruments we will use to help keep their smile healthy.
At Dental Buddies of Vero Beach, we offer a New Patient exam for any child under 2 years old.
We encourage parents to accompany their child during their visit. This gives you an opportunity to see us working with your child and allows us to discuss dental findings and treatment needs directly with you. At your child’s first visit, we will review the medical/dental health history form with you. A thorough head and neck examination and evaluation of the teeth and gums are performed. Radiographs (x-rays) are taken only if necessary, and are typically not needed before the age of 3. If we have child compliance, the teeth will be cleaned, and a fluoride treatment will be provided.
Give us a call we would love to meet you and your child!
