Pediatric Dental Hygiene
EAST MADISON DENTAL | Tenafly NJ
Parents are responsible for ensuring their children practice good dental hygiene. Parents must introduce proper oral care early in a child’s life—as early as infancy. Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics, East Madison Dental recommends that a child’s first dental visit be scheduled by their 1st birthday. It is very important to make the first visit as positive and enjoyable for the child as possible.
We want your child to enjoy getting to know our doctors and team and be comfortable at all times. Let the child know that the doctor and team will explain everything in detail and will answer any questions they have. We will record your child’s dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. We will also review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
