Dr. Sandy Crocker strives to make every dental visit fun and exciting for each client; regardless of their age.
The very first introduction will help establish an atmosphere of trust and a lifetime of happy dental visits. We strive to maintain a relaxed and welcoming family-friendly dental office at Dr. Sandy Crocker, Dr. Peter Mitchell & Associates.
Establishing a positive relationship with your dentist as a child is essential for creating healthy and lifelong oral health habits. Many clients bring their children with them to their own dentist appointments. This is a great way for children to become familiar with our smiling faces and family friendly atmosphere.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends booking your child’s initial dental visit by the age of one year or within 6 months of the first tooth appearing. We recommend booking an appointment for your child as soon as their baby teeth are visible. Young patients are welcome to sit with Mom or Dad if that makes things easier.
The first dental visit is more of a friendly introduction. Once your child is comfortably seated in our dental chair, we can assess each tooth, their gum line and their bite. This is the perfect time to discuss oral care basics and establish whether any tooth decay is present and how to prevent it from occurring.
Inspiring your child to take care of their dental health can initially be tricky as most parents know. Oral care is a critical component of your child’s overall health and we are committed to helping build a strong foundation for healthy smiles from now and into the future. Our goal is to make a trip to the dentist an enjoyable experience for both kids and parents alike.
