Based on a recommendation from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, every child should see a pediatric dentist when their first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday. Prevention and education are two of the most important treatments we can offer early on in order to develop healthy dental habits to last a lifetime.
If your child has his or her first teeth emerging, or, is under the age of 3 and has not seen a dentist yet, we would like to invite you into the our Lakewood, Colorado dental office for their first dentist checkup!
What to Expect at Your First Dentist Visit
During your first dentist appointment, we will focus on getting to know your little one while making them feel comfortable in a dental office. We will look at your child’s baby teeth, discuss how to keep them healthy and cavity-free, assess for normal dental development, and answer any questions you may have as a parent.

Benefits of Pediatric Dental Appointments
A dental visit early on in life will help create habits for a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. At Fox Point Dental in Lakewood, CO, we focus on “Finding the Why”. Instead of simply fixing a problem, we look at the cause in order to prevent additional problems in the future. By bringing your child in to see us early on, you are helping them develop habits to help avoid problems developing in the future.
From the moment you and your child step into our Lakewood dental clinic, we will take the time to listen and evaluate your unique needs, while focusing on making your little one as comfortable as possible. It is our goal to make dental a fun experience from the first time they walk in the door. We will take the time to answer any questions you may have and explain our process.
Real Stories from Real Families
She is AWESOME with kids. I have four kids (ages 9, 6, 5 and 2) and she was incredible and patient with all of them. She made me feel like a good mom and seemed like she genuinely enjoyed our kids. She gave me her cell phone number and has helped me along the way. She even answered my questions over text when our five year old knocked out his front tooth. She is seriously a moms dream of a dentist! Thank you Dr. Liz for the amazing work you’re doing and the way you’re continuing to help us!
Wow that was the best experience we have ever had at the dentist! My 4 year old daughter is still begging me to have Dr. Turner come over to our house to play days later ha! I’m switching my entire family to this Practice, and I’m so excited to finally have such an amazing Dentist to take care of us. I completely trust her and feel so comfortable around her. The team at Fox Point is also awesome! I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!
