First Visit
Your child's first dental visit will consist of a thorough review of your child's dental and health information and a comprehensive dental examination along with a discussion on proper diet, nutrition and good oral hygiene habits.

Depending on the age of your child, we will complete a professional dental cleaning and take any necessary x-rays. Dr. Yarborough will take time to discuss any concerns you may have, and prepare you for what you can expect during your child's oral development. If decay is found, the information collected will allow us to prepare a treatment plan if necessary and recommend the best options for your child's dental care.

Please help us make the first visit enjoyable and positive! We encourage parents and caregivers to use positive stories about visiting the dentist.

Try to avoid using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear. Words like "needle", "shot", "drill", or "hurt" may cause preventable anxiety and make the first dental visit more difficult for your child. At Tualatin Pediatric Dentistry we will work with you to make your child's first dental visit an adventure that sets a positive foundation for the rest of their life.

We encourage you to stay with your child during the initial examination, and during future visits you can let your child join us on their own, depending on age and comfort.
