Free Baby Smile Check-up
A pediatric dentist is specially trained to care for little teeth.
Free Baby Smile Check-Up
Not only are they super cute, but baby teeth are incredibly important! Those adorable little teeth are the foundation for speaking, chewing solid foods, and growing healthy adult teeth.
If your little one is 24 months or younger, Dr. George provides a FREE Baby Smile Check-up to get your sweet pea off to the best possible start to a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Why should my baby see a dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend a child see a dentist by their 1st birthday for a variety of reasons, including:
Dr. George and our team will talk with you about tooth development, nutrition, hygiene, and what to expect in the months and years ahead. We will answer all your questions about your baby’s teeth, just like a well-baby visit with your pediatrician.
Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease, yet a whopping 90% of it is preventable. Early tooth decay can lead to infections, abscesses, and, most importantly, damage to developing permanent teeth. We will share highly effective ways to prevent tooth decay and stop cavities before they start.
Establishing a comfortable “dental home” for your baby in a child-friendly environment means your little one will be more relaxed and willing to have dental work done. As a bonus, should a dental emergency arise, your child will be accustomed to Dr. George and the office.
Just a note: Dr. George gives his patients his personal cell phone number in the event of emergencies. He takes your child’s dental health that seriously!
What should we expect at our first visit?
At a Baby Smile check-up, our goal is to make the visit as low-stress as possible for you and baby. We want it to be a very positive experience so your child will become comfortable visiting the dentist, making future cleanings and dental work go smoothly.
At the appointment, you will have a tour of the office with one of our friendly dental assistants, then meet Dr. George who will do an oral screening of your child, share effective ways to clean your baby’s mouth, and discuss pacifier, finger, or other oral habits.
You will be involved in every aspect of the appointment, including holding your little one on your lap during the oral screening so it is a comfortable, just-a-normal-day-with-my-loving-parent experience for baby.
After a Baby Smile appointment, we suggest a periodic six-month routine checkup. Once Dr. George feels your cutie is ready to begin cleanings, we will look forward to seeing your little one approximately every six months. Our young patients really look forward to visiting Dr. George and his fun office! These early, positive visits with your baby will help lay the foundation for stress-free dental appointments and a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Baby teeth are so important that Dr. George’s wife wrote a song about them!
