Your Childs First Dental Visit Greater Lansing Pediatric Dentists

Counseling and Preventive Care

Have questions about children’s dental care? During your child’s first visit, our pediatric dentists will advise you on the best oral hygiene practices, teething, and proper nutrition to prevent cavities. They will also apply a fluoride varnish to any erupted teeth to set the stage for good oral health and prevent future decay.

In general, children start walking between 10 and 18 months. During this time, they are more likely to fall and injure their baby teeth. The good news is that our board-certified pediatric dentists are ready to offer their tried-and-true advice for preventing oral injury as your child starts to explore.

They’ll also recommend possible next steps in the event your child experiences a dental emergency.

Infant Oral Health Starter Kit

We want to set your child up for success so they can maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime. Near the end of your child’s visit, we’ll give them a special prize, along with our Infant Oral Health Starter Kit. This kit contains an infant toothbrush, Xylitol wipes for your child’s gums, and our comprehensive “Baby Tooth Guide.”
