Your First Visit to Childrens Dental Group in Oxnard, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Camarillo


We welcome new patients and recommend your child’s first dental well-care visit by age one. Our pediatric dental specialists have developed a preventive care program designed to help your child establish a healthy smile for a lifetime. Let us make your child’s first visit a happy and educational one.

Your Child's First Visit

The objective of this visit is to answer your questions regarding your child’s dental development and to provide education and guidance for oral development, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. At this visit, we will guide you and your child on healthy dietary practices, proper oral hygiene habits and techniques, and evaluate their growth and orthodontic development.

Some ways to prepare for this visit begins at home:

  • Read a story about the first dental visit to your child
  • Role-play being the doctor and count your child’s teeth
  • Always use positive language and refrain from sharing negative experiences
  • You can even try using an electric toothbrush to simulate dental instrument

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask our friendly staff. They are well informed and will be happy to assist you.

You can make an Orthodontic appointment at our Simi or Camarillo office.

The earlier the dental visit, the better the chances of preventing problems. Strong, healthy teeth help your child chew easily, speak clearly and feel good about his or her appearance.
