Growing healthy smiles! Dr. Brandon Shamblin is a Board Certified pediatric dentist who provides specialized superior quality dental care for infants, children, teens, and those with special needs.
Children under the age of three are usually more comfortable in their parent’s lap than in the dental chair. Dr. Brandon encourages parents to allow their child to stay in their lap to help comfort the child during their first few visits. Dr. Brandon will perform a “knee-to-knee” exam where the teeth and gums are examined to evaluate a child’s growth and development. Topical fluoride is often applied at this visit. This visit will include dietary and hygiene recommendations as well. Dr. Brandon encourages you to ask as many questions as you like at this time.
Children over the age of 3 are encouraged to sit in the dental chair once they are comfortable in our office. The first visit includes a full exam, cleaning, x-rays and a fluoride treatment.
