Dr. Baller recommends bringing your child for their first dental visit by age one. It might be hard for you to imagine your darling baby in a dental chair, but relax–we’ve got this!
As a parent of three boys, Dr. Holly has hands-on experience understanding what children need to feel safe and happy. She values the unique nature of each child’s personality and believes that they deserve an individualized approach to their dental visits.
Your Child's First Dental Appointment
We call these early appointments “happy” visits because that’s how we want them to feel when they leave our dental office. As an experienced children’s dentist, Dr. Baller takes time to let children dictate the pace of the first visit and never push their boundaries. We are firm believers that there is always a way for every child’s visit to end on a positive note.
Baby teeth play a more significant role in a child’s dental development than many parents realize; they help your child learn how to form words and eat their first solid foods. Since baby teeth hold space for permanent teeth that will eventually emerge, we need to ensure that they stay healthy and intact until they come out on their own.
We Can’t Wait to Meet Your Child!
Our goal is to help your little one develop the confidence and trust to become a great dental patient as an adult. If it’s time to schedule your child’s first dental visit, please call our Aurora dental office—we can’t wait to meet you!
