For kids, Dr. Nguyen likes to go by Dr. Tom! During your child’s first visit, Dr. Tom will answer any questions you have about your child’s dental health and help you develop a positive dental care routine. Dr. Tom will also make oral health seem fun and exciting for your little one. And before you leave, your child will be given a fun prize to ensure that they have positive memories of their first dental visit.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should have their first visit to the dentist by their first birthday. Bringing your child in early can greatly decrease their odds of developing dental phobia or anxiety, and routine visits will help us catch any dental issues before they become bigger problems down the road.
At Willow Creek Smiles, we want to make sure that kids feel happy and safe in our office. We know that their time with us is crucial to getting them on the right track with their dental health, so we take every measure to ensure that they have a fun, informative visit. From the kids area equipped with kids tablets to our enthusiastic, energetic team, we will always do our best to give your child the best possible experience at the dentist.
