Poplin Pediatric Dentistry

When should my child first visit the dentist?

At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we'd like to see children for their first visit as soon as they have all their baby teeth. We love working with kids to make sure they have a positive experience every time they visit our Austin dental office. Getting your child started on a lifetime of good oral health care habits is one of the best things we can do for them.

The goal of the first visit is for us to meet them and let them see that going to the dentist is fun. We’ll give them a ride in the chair, count their teeth, and show them how to brush. If indicated, we will take x-rays and pictures to get a baseline for future treatment.

We understand how important it is that we gradually get your child used being around us in the office environment. Dr. Poplin and our professional team take all the time necessary to treat your children with the special attention they need to help them feel safe and secure.

As parents, we know that you probably have concerns about your child’s first trip to the dentist. Please do not hesitate to contact our Austin dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange a visit so you can get to know Dr. Poplin and our caring team.
