Your Child's First Visit
Modesto, California


The first visit to the dentist is an important milestone for your child, and our dentists and team will make sure to get the most out of this visit. Contact Allure Dental Care & Orthodontics at 209-521-3400 to learn more about first dental visits for children in Modesto, California, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Surjit Chahal today!

As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we invite you to bring your child for their first visit to our office within six months of when their first tooth erupts. It might seem too early for a first visit, but the benefits of establishing your child’s dental home before the time you might think they need dental care are many. The earlier a child is brought into our office, the more familiar the sights, sounds and sensations of dental care will be, helping them receive future care without fear or anxiety.

During this first visit, our dentists and team will sit down with you and gently examine your child’s mouth. We will ask about your health history as well as your child’s oral habits, pacifier use and more. We will advise you on how best to care for their smile as they grow, giving advice on toothbrushing, flossing and other topics. We will also be happy to answer any questions you have.
