Gibson Dental

What happens at my child’s first dental appointment?

Your child’s dentist in Madison, AL likes to see them within six months of the first tooth eruption. This allows us to monitor how teeth are coming in and how the jaw is developing.

From the first appointment, we establish a trusting relationship with your child and foster positive associations with the dental office. This approach may curb dental anxiety into adulthood.

We also like to encourage children to take an active role in their dental care by instilling pride in a job well done. Early on, this can mean counting new teeth correctly and allowing the dentist to examine their teeth and gums.

As your child acclimates to the dental office and grows, we will add new services and more advanced treatments, including:

  • Dental sealants
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental cleanings
  • More

Our dentist will always discuss findings with you. Our team may also offer advice for at-home dental care and nutrition when necessary. And we are always here to answer your questions.
