What Happens At A First Visit Here at KidZaam Dentistry?
Is it time for your child’s first dental appointment? Doc, P.D., and the rest of our KidZaam gang can’t wait to welcome them in! From the moment your family first sees our practice in the distance on the drive in, Dr. Albert Higgins wants little patients to know that they’re in for a real treat. Appointments at the dentist don’t have to be scary – they can be joyous, entertaining, and smile-inducing! Contact us today to schedule that important first visit for your son or daughter, or if you have any questions we can help you with. With three convenient locations in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Cottonwood, AZ, KidZaam Dentistry is never far away.
When Should My Child Visit a Dentist For The First Time?
We generally recommend that children come in for the first time on their 1st birthday! These visits can be quick, comfortable, and focused on identifying any big developmental problems that may be present. They’re also very helpful when it comes to your child feeling comfortable and right at home at our practice from a very early age. Young patients from newborns all the way up to teenagers are welcome here!
What Can We Look Forward To When We Arrive?
Inside our waiting room at KidZaam Dentistry, young patients can look forward to finding a world that’s practically right out of their own imagination! A sweet bubblegum scent fills the space, and Disney movies and videogames are available for entertainment, not to mention face-painting, temporary tattoos, and much more. When it’s time to get started, children who are old enough will be invited to put on their very own labcoat and fluorescent goggles as they go into Doc’s laboratory. At every stage of the appointment, making sure your loved one is having fun is always our top priority!
Once children are settled in the treatment chair, parents can rest assured that we’ll personalize our approach to match their age and level of emotional maturity. A quick and gentle checkup will commence, during which our doctors will review their teeth (both “baby” and permanent), their gum tissue, and any developmental concerns we may notice. If they’re old enough, we may also recommend a cleaning to get rid of tricky plaque and bacteria – being able to banish D.K. is always rewarding! We’ll be sure to review any problems or damage we discover with you (the parent) in full, working together to devise the best treatment plan possible.
Finally, it’ll be time for your child to spin the toy wheel and get a prize, as well as their very own membership card that they can bring in during each appointment for an EXTRA spin! Balloons, wristbands, and other fun trinkets are also available to remind them of their experience at KidZaam Dentistry. We hope that by the time you’re back in the car, they’re already asking when they can visit us again!
