Peach is a type of Starfish. Starfish are known for the 5 “legs” or “arms” extending from a central disc. They are NOT fish by any means, so Sea Star is really a better name for these invertebrates.

happy-patientYour First Visit

The first dental visit is usually short and involves very little treatment. This visit gives your child an opportunity to meet the dentist in a non-threatening and friendly way.

During the exam, your dentist will check all of your child’s existing teeth for decay, examine your child’s bite, and look for any potential problems with the gums, jaw, and oral tissues. If indicated, the dentist or hygienist will clean any teeth and assess the need for fluoride. He or she will also educate parents about oral health care basics for children and discuss dental developmental issues and answer any questions.
