Newly Erupted Teeth, Houston TX

We are excited and look forward to meeting you and your child at their initial visit.  Pinnacle Pediatric Dentistry’s goal is to build a relationship with you and your child over the next several years in a comfortable, loving and caring environment that promotes excellent oral health care and dietary habits.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and our office recommend that your child visits the pediatric dentist within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or no later than 12 months of age.  It is important that your child's newly-erupted teeth (erupting at 6-12 months of age) receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits.  Also, this gives the dentist an excellent opportunity to educate the parent on proper oral health care and dietary habits.

We welcome the parents to accompany their child during their dental visits.  This will not only alleviate the stress of the child, but the stress of the parent as well.  As your child becomes more comfortable with Dr. Shaw and our team members, we encourage (but do not require) them to come back on their own.  Upon the conclusion of each visit, any treatment or positive findings will be discussed with the parent.  In this manner, we hope to build a positive relationship with each family that gives us the opportunity to serve them.  Our goal is to make both you and your child feel welcomed and comfortable in our office.

If there are ever any questions or concerns with your child’s oral health, please inform Dr. Shaw or her team upon arrival at our office.  We will be certain to address any concerns that you may have.
