Your child’s first birthday is the time to schedule the first pediatric dental visit. When your children are patients of Pediatric Dental of Wayland, you can be assured that we will make that first visit enjoyable and positive. This is the beginning of a lifetime of good oral health.
Our pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers who treat children from infancy through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
First Visit- What to Expect
Your child’s first visit will include an oral examination, and depending on the age, we may do a teeth cleaning, fluoride treatment and digital X-rays.
Teeth cleaning includes removing plaque and tartar from tooth surfaces and along the gum line, followed by flossing and polishing the teeth. We may also recommend preventive treatments.
