Pediatric Dentist

Pediatric Dentist San RamonIf you are looking for an experienced pediatric dentist in San Ramon, California, contact Dr. Carol Jin. The care of children’s dental health is critical to their overall personal development. The earlier they receive attention to their teeth, gums, and mouth, the fewer problems they may experience in the future. Since many children fear dental offices, finding a good pediatric dentist is essential.

As a children’s dentist in San Ramon, Dr. Carol Jin caters to the entire family. Our atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Our focus is to work with patients on every level. We promote children’s oral health from tooth inconsistencies by maintaining good oral practices, and providing dental education.

Preparing For Your First Pediatric Dental Visit

You should do your best to create an enjoyable and positive first visit for your child. Communicating with your child to understand there is nothing to fear will help alleviate any stress of their first dentist visit.

  • Take your child for a “preview” of the office.
  • Read books with them about going to the dentist.
  • Review with them what the dentist will be doing at the time of the first visit.
  • Speak positively about your own dental experiences.

Scheduling Your First Pediatric Dentist Visit

The first “regular” visit to a pediatric dentist should be just after your child’s third birthday. The first visit to a pediatric dentist is usually short and involves very little treatment. We may ask you to sit in the dental chair and hold your child during the examination. You may be asked to wait in the reception area during part of the visit so we can build a relationship between your child and your dentist.

Dr. Carol Jin, a children’s dentist in San Ramon, will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. X-rays may be taken (to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums). We may clean your child’s teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. We will make sure your child is receiving adequate fluoride at home. Most importantly, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.

What Should I Tell My Child About Their First Dental Visit

We have been asked this question many times. We suggest you prepare your child the same way you would before their first haircut or trip to the shoe store. Your child’s reaction to his first visit to the dentist may surprise you. If you don’t indicate they should fear the visit (even if you do), they may just end up loving the dentist.

During your first visit, we will:

  • Examine your child’s mouth, teeth, and gums.
  • Evaluate adverse habits like thumb sucking.
  • Check to see if your child needs fluoride.
  • Teach your children about oral hygiene.
  • Suggest a schedule for regular dental visits.
