Kids Are Welcome at Our Frisco Dental Office

Frisco Kids Dentist Shares Info On Your Child’s First Visit
Dr. Alapati recommends that children begin seeing a dentist between the ages of 2 and 3, and we begin seeing children here at New Smiles Frisco around the age of 5.
This first dental appointment for your child is commonly very short and most of the time involves no or very little actual treatment.
Depending on your preference and how comfortable your child is, you may elect to sit in the examination room to accompany your child.
Of course lots of children are perfectly comfortable in Dr. Alapati’s office.
During this first appointment we:
- Gently examine your child’s teeth and gums.
- Take X-rays – if necessary (to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums).
- Clean your child’s teeth.
- May apply topical fluoride (to help protect against tooth decay).
Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.
If you need a Frisco dentist that accepts children, call us at (469) 458-2035.
