a positive, fun dental experience

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that your child’s first dental visit takes place by their 1st birthday. Our mission is to make visits positive, fun, and educational experiences in order to build a very strong foundation for lifelong oral health and pediatric dental care. We understand that the first visit to the kids dentist can be scary for a child and stressful for both child and parent but we will do our best to alleviate that anxiety for you and your child.

Besides collecting your child’s medical and dental history, we sit down and have a conversation with you about your child’s growth and development. We get to know you and your child and address your dental questions and concerns as a parent.

We strive to make your child’s dental visit stress-free and comfortable. We are here to support you, care for you, and help your child take pride in the health and appearance of their teeth. Everyone at The Children's Tooth Spa truly understands kids, and we know about their teeth – a perfect combination!


helpful tips to make your first dental visit The Children's Tooth Spa.


  • Tell your child that they are going to the pediatric dentist to get their teeth counted, probably take some photos (x-rays), and clean their teeth with a very special toothbrush!
  • If you don't know the answer to your child's questions, respond with "I don't know, let's ask Dr. Jenny when we get there!"


  • Please try to refrain from discussing any negative dental experiences or dental anxiety you may have in order to help create a positive experience for your child.
  • Sometimes, in trying to prepare your child for your appointment with us, you may use a scary word when describing what to expect. Try to avoid using words such as needle, shot, pinch, injection, pull, and pain.
