1. Your Initial Consultation
Dr. Astrid will review your child’s medical history and examine their mouth to create a treatment plan that suits their needs.

If your child is getting treatment under general anesthesia, you’ll meet with Mariane, our OR coordinator. Don’t forget to bring your medical insurance card!
If your child is having surgery, you’ll see Dr. Astrid before and after the procedure to review the details of your child’s treatment.
4. Follow-Up Care
We’ll continue to work with you to prevent future cavities and see your child every 6 months for regular cleanings and exams.

Answers to your questions
When should I bring my baby to the dentist?
Why is it important to take your baby to the dentist?
This visit is an opportunity for your little one to learn about the importance of dental care and hygiene from a young age, which can help them maintain healthy teeth and avoid pesky cavities. It’s also an important educational opportunity for parents! By scheduling that early dental visit, we help empower parents and detect any potential problems before they turn into more serious issues.
How do I prepare my baby for the first visit?
Take a deep breath and prepare for a fun and positive dental visit with your child! Here are some ways to do just that:
- Read up and role-play. Read picture books about visiting the dentist, and encourage your toddler to play “dentist” with a stuffed animal or doll.
- Use positive language when explaining the role of the dentist.
- Come prepared with comfort toys and distractions for the waiting room and the dentist’s chair.
- Plan a special treat for after the appointment. Something as simple as a trip to the playground can help your child focus on the positive aspects of the visit.
- Stay relaxed during the appointment. If you’re cheerful and calm, you can help set the tone for your child to be relaxed too.
- Be a good cheerleader for your little one. Congratulate them whenever possible and try to be supportive, even if they have difficulty cooperating.
Give your child a healthy smile
Going to the dentist shouldn’t be difficult or stressful. Our team is here to help your child get the dental care that they deserve so they can eat, sleep, and go to school without pain.
