The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) advises that children be seen for a checkup every 6 months. These visits allow Dr. Khattab to closely monitor new changes in your child’s mouth and ensure that you, as a parent, have the information you need to promote continued oral health in your child. Our pediatric dental team at Lorton Town Dental may suggest additional checkups if your child is more susceptible to cavities or if your child is showing signs of orthodontic problems.
We encourage you and your child to ask questions and are always here to address any concerns you have as a parent. We offer empathetic oral health education and use simple explanations to answer your child’s questions and reassure them.
Your Child's First Dental Visit
Dr. Khattab understands that you want the best for your child. At Lorton Town Dental, we focus on providing the highest quality pediatric dental care possible. It’s completely normal for a child to be unsure or nervous about their first dental visit, but they don’t have to be! Our practice is designed to make your child comfortable and excited to visit the dentist.
If your child is anxious, has special needs, or just needs extra help staying calm and comfortable, Dr. Khattab may recommend laughing gas. Laughing gas is a completely safe way to help children receive the dental care they need without anxiety or fear. Once the dental treatment is over, the gas will be completely out of their system after just a few minutes. Laughing gas is widely considered to be low risk. Our goal is to always care for your child’s dental health in the safest way possible!
