What can you expect during your child’s first visit?

This first visit is a fantastic opportunity for your little one to explore our office, meet our wonderful pediatric dentists and the friendly team. We’ll start by warmly welcoming you and your child. Then, we’ll have a chat with you about your child’s medical and health history, as well as any developmental aspects, habits, and dietary preferences they might have.

Next up, we’ll give your child a super gentle examination, making sure they feel comfortable and at ease throughout the process. If we come across anything noteworthy, we’ll discuss it with you in detail. We may also share some useful tips on brushing and flossing to maintain that radiant smile!

We might also talk about fluoride treatments or dental sealants if they’re relevant to your child’s dental health. You can count on us to be there to address any questions or concerns you or your child may have. To wrap up the visit, we’ll work with you to schedule future appointments to keep your child’s oral health in top-notch shape.

Here are some valuable tips for you and your little one as you prepare for their inaugural dental expedition with us!

  • We’ll be guiding you through the visit and explaining all the procedures we’re doing before and while we do them. We’ll answer any questions your kiddo or you may have along the way.
  • You can let them know that you’ll be in the same room, right there with them.
  • Avoid providing specific details on what’s involved as every child is different and so are dental assessments. For a first-time visit for a one-year-old, you could simply share that the dentist is going to count their teeth.
  • We want to make your child’s first visit a breeze and keep those unnecessary fears at bay. So, when talking to your kiddo about their visit, try to avoid using words like “needle,” “shot,” “pull,” “drill,” or “hurt.”

New Patient Forms

Before you and your kiddo head in for your first appointment at Stellar, we’d really appreciate it if you could complete the paperless new patient forms. It’s super easy! We’ll send them to you in a secure digital format. You’ll find family information, new patient medical/dental history, general consent, and HIPPA consent forms waiting for you.

The best part? Submitting these forms before you arrive will make your check-in lightning-fast! We want you to have more time for what really matters – taking care of your child’s dental health. We’ll have some fresh coffee ready and waiting for you when you get here. Can’t start the day without a good cup of joe, right? If you’ve got any questions or need a hand with those forms, don’t hesitate to give us a shout. See you soon!
