When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?

The first dental visit should coincide with the eruption of the child’s first tooth, usually before the first birthday. Like adults, the American Dental Association recommends that children see their dentist every six months to achieve optimal dental health. This may seem like overkill considering your child has but one or two teeth, but it’s important at this time to develop the patterns of care. Plus, if there is a problem, we can see it early and decide on the proper course of care.

How does a concierge dentist differ from a regular dentist?

My child fears going to the dentist. How will at-home dentistry help with this?

child smiling | Concierge Dental Services Often dental anxiety stems from the unusual smells and sounds of a dental office. Some children (and adults) have a reaction to the antiseptic smells, as they associate them with dental procedures. Others have a normal fear of the dental drill sounds they may hear from an adjacent area. Just being out of their element and in the necessarily sterile confines of a dental office can make a child uneasy.

They may also have heard from friends about bad experiences at the dentist. Or they may have seen or heard references in cartoons or other media.

By having Dr. Rima come to your home, none of these potential negatives are present. First, there aren’t any dental office smells; the child is used to the normal smells of your home. Second, there aren’t any drills to cope with. Third, the child is in his or her own environment, so they are dramatically more at ease. This makes the entire process easier for the child to deal with.

And then there’s Dr. Rima. As a board-certified pediatric dentist, she has the additional training and extensive experience of working with only children as patients. This gives her an entirely different approach than a general dentist who also accepts children.

Will my child miss out on necessary aspects of treatment by not going to the office?

Absolutely not. Dr. Rima provides the same level of care with our concierge at-home dental care as we do for our in-office patients. Of course, she can’t take digital x-rays, but just about anything short of that can be accomplished in the comfort of your home.

How should I prepare for an at-home dental appointment?

If your child is a first timer or otherwise still quite small, Dr. Rima can have the child in their car seat or possibly their highchair. She also has a special pop-up chair that is perfect for some patients.

Dr. Rima will want to check out the foods, drinks, and vitamins your child is eating. From there, she can advise you on how to keep your child’s developing teeth as healthy as possible.
