she is 4 and going for the very first time this afternoon.
im just curious what usually goes on at the first dental appointment. im assuming basically just a regular exam and maybe sent home with a toothbrush?
she does have one oral problem - her two front teeth are just one big tooth. is it possible they might do xrays to confirm whether or not her primarys are going to be 2 teeth? would they do xrays on the first visit?

I hope you have a dentist that makes this first check up fun for kids. I think the biggest part of this first visit is to have the child learn to not fear the dentist. My son did not fear the dentist as a child because his first visit was a huge fun deal but us and dentist. They did nothing but peak in his mouth but the experience is what matter.
