Girl Laughing With DentistAt Westlake Family Dental Care, we provide quality general and pediatric dentistry to patients in Cuyahoga County and the greater Cleveland area. Our experienced team understands that visiting the dentist can be daunting for some patients. We are committed to making your dental experience pleasant and comfortable from the moment you walk in the door. Knowing what to expect at your first visit can reduce anxiety and help you better understand what we do to help you reach optimal oral health.

What To Expect At Your First Dental Visit

If you’re due for a teeth cleaning, our hygienist uses state-of-the-art dental tools to get your mouth feeling fresh and clean. Your dentist will review your medical history, perform a comprehensive examination and take X-rays if necessary. She’ll talk with you about any concerns and answer any questions you may have about your oral health. She will then create an individualized treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

Preparing For Your Appointment

Before your visit, jot down any questions or concerns you have about your oral health. We offer tons of informational resources on our website, so please feel free to peruse! To save time, you can also fill out your patient registration forms online. Being thorough when sharing your medical history will ensure we have all the information we need to provide the best care possible. If you have dental insurance, please make sure to bring your card with you to your appointment.

Preparing Children For Their First Appointment

At Westlake Family Dental Care, we treat patients of all ages with the compassion and respect they deserve. We love our younger patients and offer a wide array of pediatric dental care services. During their first visit, we will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. Depending on your child’s age, we may also clean their teeth and take X-rays to assess the health and development of permanent teeth. Keep it positive and let your child know what to expect at their first visit. Reading books about going to the dentist and encouraging your child to “play dentist” with you at home can minimize anxiety and make the experience fun.
