Taking your child to the dentist for the first time can be nerve-wracking for both of you, especially because you do not know how your child may react. Zicherman, Lago, and Associates, PC features a child-friendly dental team that will help your whole family feel comfortable in our offices. We will help your child adjust to the surroundings so that he or she will enjoy the visit.
We recommend that you bring your child into our offices by his or her first birthday or within six months after the first tooth comes in. During the visit, Dr. Zicherman, Dr. Lago, or another of our experienced dentists will discuss your child’s specific needs and answer any questions you as a parent may have. Then, one of our dentists will perform a comprehensive examination for oral disease or orthodontic problems, and will record and monitor your child’s facial growth and development. We may also take the opportunity to have a dentist or hygienist gently clean your child’s teeth and apply an anti-cavity fluoride treatment. We will also talk to you about any oral habits your child may have, such as sucking on his or her thumb or pacifier, and help you understand your child’s oral health needs.
We invite you to contact our office if you are in search of a friendly pediatric dentist in Peabody, Massachusetts.
