Enjoy a Great Experience For Your Child’s First Dental Visit in Stone Mountain

Your child’s first dental visit is crucial for setting them on the right path for a lifetime of good oral hygiene. That’s why Dr. Blankenship, Dr. Jordan, and our staff take extra time with kids in our Stone Mountain dentist office. We want them – and you – to feel right at home at Blankenship Family Dentistry. Here are some of the ways we do that:

  • Reliance on a warm, personal touch rather than sedation.
  • A fun toy box that kids can pick a prize from.
  • Cartoon electric toothbrushes for your child to take home.

Call us at 770-766-8995 today to schedule a dental visit for your child. Both of you will have a good time in our fun office!

Visit a Caring Dentist Office

When your child is about 2, you should make an appointment with Blankenship Family Dentistry for his or her first visit. This visit will be more of a “happy visit” where they get acquainted with us and with what good dental care is all about.

We may show your child around the office and point out some of the special tools that dentists use to keep their mouths healthy. Of course, we’ll answer any questions that you or your little one have.

During this visit, we will count their teeth but won’t do an “official” exam. We’ll work with you to teach them how to put toothpaste on a brush as well as the proper technique for effective brushing.

At around age 3, their appointments will more closely resemble an actual dentist appointment. We will give them a complete dental exam to check for cavities and other problems, then thoroughly clean their teeth.

By age 5, your child should be seen twice a year for regular checkups, just as an adult should.

Schedule your child’s first dental visit today. Call 770-766-8995 to speak to a member of our helpful staff. Get your child started on the right track to a lifelong healthy smile!
