Dr. Heck is the mother of 3 children, and collectively her staff has 17 children and counting. As parents we are very sensitive to the unique needs of children. It is important to us that your child feels comfortable during their dental visit. Children who visit the dentist on a regular basis tend to develop positive dental attitudes throughout their lifetime.
Baby teeth lay the foundation for dental health in the future. It is recommended that your child’s first exam should be by his or her first birthday or when the first tooth appears. In the first visit your child will become accustomed to the dentist’s office. Dr. Heck will teach you how to best take care of your child’s teeth as they develop.
Before the visit play going to the dentist games with your child. Use stuffed animals to represent the members of the team. Be positive and encouraging when talking about the visit.
We take pride in the fact that many of our patients seen years ago as children bring their own children to us. We feel that it is the greatest compliment for you to trust us with your most precious child.
