First Visit

knee to knee exam

The first birthday is the time for the first dental visit. Waiting until all the baby teeth have come in is not necessary and is often too late for children that are at high risk for early childhood cavities. Do not wait until your child is in pain or you notice problems!   Your child's first visit to our office is the most important one. This will be the time for us to establish trust and understanding between the doctors, your child, our staff, and yourself.

To help our younger patients become more comfortable with dental treatment, we can perform a "knee-to-knee" exam, easing your child's apprehension.

We strive to make you and your child feel comfortable as we welcome you into our dental family. Once all of the necessary forms and paperwork are completed, our new patient coordinator will bring you and your child into our new patient area. She will review your child’s medical history and current dental concerns. One of the doctors will then conduct a thorough examination and discuss any necessary treatment and answer any dental questions. We will be sure you leave our office knowledgeable and satisfied that you and your child have been well cared for by the doctors and our staff. If you have any questions at any time, please ask.

At Villalon Callis Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we must have the birth parent or legal guardian present during your child‘s first visit.   All legal guardians must bring legal documents showing guardianship. If no legal documentation is provided then we will not be allowed to see your child.
