First Visit | Great Grins Children's Dentistry | Pediatric Dentist | Tucson, AZ

First Visit

What happens on the first visit?

first visitThe American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that a child’s first visit to the dentist occur at 1 year of age or 6 months after the 1st tooth comes out. Early visits help your child become familiar with the doctors and team. They also lessen the fear often associated with the dentist. Additionally, early visits allow us to prevent future problems.


The initial visit for patients under 3 consists of:

Complete dental exam, including oral cancer screening

Review of oral habits, such as thumb/finger sucking and pacifier usage

Demonstration of tooth brushing and flossing

Fluoride discussion

Assessment of the development of the teeth and jaw

Detection of existing or potential problems

Nutrition counseling

And finally, a goodie bag!

A parent or legal guardian must bring the child to the first visit. It is important to find a pediatric dentist for your little one at an early age. Pediatric offices are specifically designed for children! This encourages kids to look forward to their visits. In addition, going to the dentist regularly will also help prevent dental problems.

A first visit can be scary, but Dr. Wolfman and Dr. Lele only work with children and infants. Because of this, you can be sure that your child’s dental needs will be met in our office! Call Great Grins at (520)325-4746 to schedule your first visit.
