First Visit


Your child's dental health is important at Alameda Pediatric Dentistry Your child's first dental visit will consist of a thorough review of your child's dental and health information and a comprehensive dental examination along with a discussion on proper diet, nutrition, and good oral hygiene habits.

Depending on the age and needs of your child, we will complete a professional dental cleaning, conduct re-mineralization therapy, and take any necessary x-rays. Dr. Sharine Thenard will take time to discuss any concerns you may have, and prepare you for what you can expect during your child's oral development. If decay is found, the information collected will allow Dr. Sharine Thenard to prepare a treatment plan and recommend the best options for your child's dental care.

Please help us make the first visit enjoyable and positive! We encourage parents and caregivers to use positive stories about visiting the dentist, songs, and descriptive words to describe your child's upcoming visit.

Try to avoid using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear. Words like "needle", "shot", "drill", or "hurt" may cause preventable anxiety and make the first dental visit more difficult for your child. At Alameda Pediatric Dentistry, we will work with you to make your child's first dental visit an adventure that sets a positive foundation for the rest of their life.

We encourage you to stay with your child during the initial examination, and during future visits you can let your child join us on their own, depending on age and comfort.
