Our dentist and team are excited to serve patients of all ages. This is why Dr. Kerry Olszewski provides pediatric dentistry in Mill Creek, Washington. Our dentist recommends that your child have his or her first dental appointment within six months after his or her first tooth grows in.

Your child’s first dental appointment will be short and will include very little treatment. The purpose of this visit is to give your child the opportunity to meet our dentist in a friendly, comfortable way. We want your child to feel comfortable with our dentist and with sitting in the dental chair. Our dentist may ask you to sit in the dental chair, holding your child during their exam. This will make them feel more comfortable. You may be asked to wait in the reception room during part of your child’s visit so that your child can develop trust for our dentist.

Our dentist will examine all of your child’s teeth for decay, check their bite, and look for any issues or potential issues with the gums, jaw, and oral tissues. Our hygienist may clean your child’s teeth of plaque and tartar. Then our dentist and hygienist will answer any questions you may have and educate you about dental hygiene for children.
