What To Expect at the Office

The age 1 care visit is similar to a well-baby check at the physician's office.

At the visit, you should expect Dr. Capozzi and our staff to:

Thoroughly examine your child's mouth in the knee-to-knee position. You and the dentist sit on chairs facing each other. Your child sits on your lap, facing you. You then lay your child back with his or her head in the dentist's lap. In this position, both you and dentist can see clearly into your child's mouth and your child can look up at you.

Dr. Capozzi or the hygienist may also clean your child's teeth and also apply fluoride, particularly if your child has a higher than average risk of developing cavities.

Before leaving our office, you should have a clear idea about:

You should have your questions answered. You also should know what you and Dr. Capozzi can do together to make sure your child has excellent oral health.
