Our top priority is to create a comfortable and happy environment for you and your child. Our friendly and caring staff will happily explain all procedures and answer any questions. We strive to provide the best possible care for your child and ensure that his/her oral health is treated and maintained at optimum condition.
Your child will receive a thorough examination with Dr. Gamble, where she’ll discuss results with our report card, offer recommendations for how to best care for your child’s teeth, and much more. Oral health education, brushing techniques, flossing, healthy snacks and fluoride recommendations are just some of the topics discussed during your child's initial cleaning and exam appointment.
WITHIN 6 MONTHS
after the first baby tooth arrives
NO LATER THAN
his/her first birthday
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child visit the dentist for an initial oral evaluation within 6 months of the eruption of his/her first baby tooth and no later than their first birthday. It is important to start children early in the right direction to good dental hygiene and building healthy, life-long habits.
We have an open-door policy, which means you are welcome to be with your child at all times. Our goal is to develop a trusting relationship with your child and allow them to have a positive experience in receiving dental care. Studies have shown that most children react more positively when permitted to experience the dental visit on their own and in an environment designed for children. However, if you feel your presence would make your child more comfortable, you are welcome to accompany your child into the treatment room. For children 3 years of age and under, it is very helpful to have the parent in the room and often your child will be on your lap! For the safety and privacy of all patients at Dr. Gamble’s office, we ask that all children who are not being treated remain in the reception room with a supervising adult.
You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive.
