Pediatric Dentist FAQs
Many parents that live in or work near Woodbury, NY have a lot of questions when it comes to taking their child to their first pediatric dentist appointment. Luckily, Dr. Dayna Olstein and the professional team at Orange County Pediatric Dentistry have the answers to all the questions that you may have.
When should I start to take my child to see a pediatric dentist?
Dr. Dayna Olstein recommends that you take your child to the pediatric dentist, after the first tooth has erupted, or between 1 and 6 months of age.
How do I prepare my child for their initial consultation?
It is important to inform your child about the visit with the doctor, they are about to have. Dr. Dayna Olstein recommends introducing a children’s book dedicated to the topic of teeth and dentists. At Orange County Pediatric Dentistry, we know that things don’t always go as planned when it comes to children. That’s why we also take pride in using advanced techniques to ease your child’s nerves, to help relax them a little more.
