The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children should visit their dentist every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning. This allows for early diagnosis of any problems so that they are easier and less expensive to address. During the exam, your child’s pediatric dentist will carefully check the health and development of your child’s teeth
Our practice can provide a wide range of dental services. We can typically provide every type of dental service without having to refer you to other specialties. As a dentist specializing in treating children of all ages from infant to young adult, Dr. Grieve personally perform comprehensive groups of treatments that address most dental situations your child will encounter.
Welcome to the practice! We look forward to meeting you and your child(ren) in person at their first dental appointment. Before you come in, we thought you might want to know a little bit about us and get an idea about what to expect during your child's visit.
We believe that achieving and maintaining the oral health of your child's teeth and gums takes a team effort and that you play as big a role as we do in achieving it. Therefore, you can expect to be involved in your child's treatment plan program.
Your Child's First Visit
During your child's first visit, we'll ask you to fill out a medical history form, which is vital in developing their treatment plan. Next, we'll examine your child's teeth, gums and oral tissues. We will take x-rays if needed and examine their bite. Later, using our findings from the exam, we will determine a treatment plan and go over it together.
If you have any questions about our practice, please call us anytime (760) 260-9033. We welcome your family to the practice and look forward to meeting soon.
