What to Expect during Your Child’s First Visit
Your child’s initial visit will consist of a thorough consultation where Dr. Kira Gekht will gently examine their mouth. If necessary we can take dental x-rays and we will need to know a bit about their medical history. We can also talk to you about oral hygiene and the best way to care for their teeth at home. You will find our dental team are extremely gentle when treating children, particularly when they may be nervous or anxious and we go out of our way to help them relax during their visit. If your child requires treatment, we take every possible precaution to make sure they are kept as comfortable as possible.
Emergency Dental Appointments for Children
Active children can often injure teeth which is why we offer emergency appointments and out of hours treatment for children who have had a dental injury. Often it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible and we can offer you advice over the phone on how best to deal with the problem until you can get to our dental office.
If you’d like to book an appointment for your child please call us at 941-921-4654 and of course we are always more than willing to answer any questions you might have about our children’s dental services.
