What is the first visit like?
As a pediatric dental office, we are used to the short attention spans of little ones! The first visit is mostly informative with a gentle and thorough examination to provide information for proper home care and early detection of any cavities or problems.
Dr. Mann will spend time talking with you about your child and any concerns you may have. She will review your child’s medical and dental history, and examine your child carefully. If appropriate, she may recommend additional treatment such as a cleaning, fluoride and/or x-rays. Based on her findings, Dr. Mann will design a personalized home care program for your child, including brushing and flossing instructions, diet counselling, and if necessary, fluoride and orthodontic recommendations.
What if my child is anxious or fearful and has special needs?
Our experienced team is specially trained in treating special needs patients! We welcome patients with any medical, physical or mental disability, and Dr. Mann is always available to discuss any concerns you may have before or after a visit.
