What Happens At Your Infant's First Dental Visit

If you come in with your infant who has just begun the teething process, our Paediatric Dentist Dr. Pratibha Kukreja Pandit will examine the baby’s mouth first. She will then guide you about:

  • Baby bottles and how they are affecting your child’s teeth
  • Infant feeding practices
  • Mouth cleaning
  • Teething 
  • Pacifier habits
  • Finger-sucking habits

This visit can make the teething process easier and comparatively pain-free for the baby.

What Happens At Your Child's First Dental Visit

In case you visit us for the first when the child is a little older, then we have the following tips for you:

  • Talk to the child beforehand about his/her first visit to the dentist. Walk them through what will take place at the clinic (a routine dental check-up)
  • If possible play a dentist and patient role-play game with him/her to make them comfortable with the idea.
  • Ensure that the child is well-rested and well-fed before the appointment.
  • Talk to us about any psychological or health issues we need to be aware of in advance.
  • Keep your body language calm and do not convey anxiety to the child. It is important for you and the child to have a positive frame of mind when you bring them for a first visit.
