Dr. Torbenson and Dr. Neumann are pleased to provide quality dental care for patients of all ages, including children. Our dentists recommend that your child have their first visit within six months after his or her first tooth comes in.
Your child’s first dental appointment will involve very little treatment. The purpose of this visit is to give your child the opportunity to meet our dentists in a friendly, comfortable way. Our dentists may ask you to sit in the dental chair, holding your child, during their exam. This will help him or her feel more at ease. Our dentists may ask you to wait in the reception area for part of the appointment so that your child can grow to trust our dentists. Our team will perform a dental exam, checking all of your child’s teeth for decay, checking their bite, and looking for any issues or potential problems with the gums, jaw, and oral tissues. Our hygienist may clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride. Our dentists and hygienist will then educate you about dental hygiene basics for children and answer any questions you may have.
We invite you to contact Advanced Dental today to learn more about children’s dentistry in Mankato, Minnesota, and to schedule your child’s next appointment.
