Your Child’s First Visit


If your child is young and it’s their first visit, you can tell them, “Dr. Williamson may count your teeth, take some pictures of your teeth and shine your teeth”.

Your child’s initial visit will likely include:

–    A friendly meeting

–    Evaluation of past medical and dental problems which may affect treatment

–    An examination of their teeth and gums

–    Cleaning their teeth

–    Taking necessary X-rays

–    Finding and determining your child’s dental needs

–    Oral hygiene instructions – information aimed at preventing your child getting tooth decay and gum disease


It’s important children get an early start properly caring for their teeth. We want them to be comfortable and feel positive about coming to see us.
