Dr. Pang wants to help care for your child’s smile from the moment they receive their first tooth. We know that visiting the dentist can be nerve-wracking for many people, especially children. That’s why our pedodontist provides gentle care in a welcoming environment, and explains all treatments beforehand. For your child’s first dental visit in San Jose, California, our team will treat your child the same way we would treat our own children. Call us today at 408-247-5500 to schedule your child’s first appointment!

According to the American Dental Association, it is recommended that you bring your child in for their first dental visit when they receive their first baby tooth, or by the time they are one year old. Our team agrees with this recommendation, and we are here to give your child the care they need right from the beginning. As you bring your child to the dentist early on, we can help protect their teeth and prevent future damage to either their baby or permanent teeth, or both.

When you bring your child in for their first visit, our pedodontist will examine their mouth for any signs of decay or damage. There are many common problems that arise with a child’s first teeth, such as baby bottle tooth decay, which is caused by your child drinking sugary drinks from a bottle too often. Our pedodontist can also watch your child’s growth patterns to identify potential problems in the future and provide early treatment to avoid them. We also know of the unique and specific care that children need at the dentist, and we make sure that your child receives the care they need.

At the end of your child’s first appointment, our pedodontist will demonstrate how parents can properly brush and care for their child’s teeth at home. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have. We want to do all that we can to help your child’s smile remain healthy and beautiful. If you additional questions or concerns before or after your child’s appointment, we welcome you to call or visit our office.
