Family Dentistry in West Windsor

We understand that you have many options when it comes to choosing a dentist in West Windsor, and we are here to answer any questions you may have to help you feel confident about coming to our office. It is important to keep in mind that there are a few unique benefits to bringing your child to a family dentist as opposed to a pediatric dentist. 

Family dentists are skilled in providing care for patients of all ages. This means you’ll be able to bring your whole family to one convenient location to receive the care they need. Instead of running around town to different dental offices for the adults and children in your life, you’ll be able to get all of your dental needs taken care of under one roof. As opposed to pediatric dental offices, your child will not “age out” of our practice. This means that as your children grow, we’ll be able to keep seeing them, helping them to feel comfortable with the dentist they are familiar with. 

At What Age Should I Bring My Child to the Dentist?

According to our doctors and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), it is recommended that you bring your child in to the dentist by their first birthday, or whenever their first tooth erupts. This allows us to track their oral development from an early age. Plus, regular visits help us to identify any potential oral health concerns while they are small and easily treatable. 

The earlier you bring your child in to our office, the more comfortable they will feel, greatly reducing their chances of developing dental anxiety. They’ll become familiar with our team and coming in for regular visits will feel like a natural part of their routine instead of something that makes them nervous or anxious. This allows us to provide a higher level of patient care as we can get to know your child and personalize their visits to accommodate their personality and needs. This also leads to a better level of overall oral health as your child will understand the value of proper oral care. 

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

At your child’s first visit, we will be focusing on introductions and getting to know each other. Your little one will meet our friendly team, and we will get acquainted with your child. If your child is shy, don’t worry! Our team is understanding and patient and will let your child warm up to us on their own terms. Since their first visit will be focused on familiarizing your child with our practice and introducing preventive care, there is no need to feel nervous. Your child will look to you for indications of how to react to a new situation, so remember to keep it upbeat and easy-going. 

If the doctor finds any potential issues, we will work with you to develop a custom treatment plan and you will be given time and space to make a decision as to how you would like to proceed. There is never any pressure to make a decision on the spot! As always, If you have any further questions, just give us a call at (609) 779-2054. Our team is always happy to help by providing you with the answers you need.
