At Juanita Kids Dentistry, our entire office revolves around fulfilling our mission of providing the highest quality, comprehensive children’s dental care experience available.
Our intentional, child-friendly space, matched with Dr. Song’s expertise, ensures your child is provided with the dental care they need. We are excited to meet you and look forward to creating your child’s safe and comfortable dental home!
For your child’s first visit to our office, we like to do a comprehensive examination. This includes looking at your child’s teeth along with the supporting structures of the gums. We will also address your child’s oral hygiene, as well as clean your child’s teeth. We will look at your child’s bite and will only take X-rays if necessary. This is the optimal time to ask questions about your child’s mouth and teeth.
Going to the dentist should be positive, and creating a memorable experience begins at home. Start by discussing the upcoming visit with your child to ease their mind. Make sure to let them know the dentist and team will explain each procedure and answer your child’s questions.
When discussing the dentist with your child, avoid using phrases that could create negative feelings such as needle, shot or drill. Our dental team uses words that have similar meanings, but are positive and won’t worry your child.
