A first dental visit can be a little bit scary for children, so it is normal for them to be scared, and it's something that we deal with all the time. We do have different methods to make them feel comfortable. So, we talk about things in a different way. But you can expect to go home knowing what their routine should be like, how often they should be brushing their teeth, and what we can do to prevent cavities as far as diet. So, our goal is to have children be comfortable coming to the office where we can set them on a path to have a beautiful smile for life.
Our kid-friendly team at Davenport Dental Group will make your child feel safe and keep their smile healthy with:
- World-class care from an expert dentist such as Dr. Dick Davenport, who is among only 6 percent of dentists in the U.S. who have the honor of a fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry
- A welcoming staff who loves making kids feel comfortable
- Comfortable technology and a gentle touch

Give Your Child Age-Appropriate Dental Care
Even if you’re not a first-time parent, you may wonder when a child first goes to the dentist. We suggest taking your child to a pediatric dentist soon after their first tooth comes out and then establishing routine cleanings at our office when your child is 3 years old. The cornerstone of our family dental care approach is developing relationships with the whole gang!
During your child’s appointment, they’ll be introduced to some of our processes and features:
- Simple dental exam and cleaning by a hygienist
- Digital X-rays if your child seems ready
- A conversation with one of our kid-friendly dentists
- A sticker reward for good behavior and bravery
- Cartoons on TV the entire time
Start Your Children On A Path To Healthy Smiles
Not all children reach developmental milestones at the same age, so it’s important to bring your child in at least every six months so that we can monitor their progress and oral health. Since we’re a family practice, we’ll continue providing great dental care for life.
If you have a little one who is at least 3 years old, it’s time to schedule your child’s first dental visit on Junction Drive in Laredo at Davenport Dental Group. Call us today at 956-242-6745.
