Childrens Dentistry

Thank you for your interest in Columbia Family Dentist, where your child’s dental health comes first. At our practice, our patients are our main priority. We know that for children, going to the dentist can be scary, which is why we’ve created a pleasant and comfortable environment to make your child’s first dental experience a positive one, and build trust with them for future visits.  

Our friendly and experienced dentists, Dr. Sahil Goyal, Dr. Anshu Goyal, Dr. Amy Barrer, and Dr. Antoine Johnson, and the rest of the Columbia Family Dentist team are determined to get your child on the path to a lifetime full of healthy & radiant smiles. 

When Should I Schedule My Child’s First Visit?

Our staff, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), recommend that you schedule your child’s first dental appointment as soon as they get their first tooth, and at latest by their first birthday.  This will allow our dentists to help your child maintain good oral health as they get older, but also prevent potential dental issues, such as gum disease, with early dental treatment.  Oral health also plays a significant role in overall health, so taking your child to the dentist early will make for a healthier child!   

Preparing For The First Dental Visit

To help ease the nerves before your child’s first visit, we highly recommend that parents refrain from using words such as “needle” or “drill”, since they can easily scare the child and give them a negative, scary image of the dentist in general.  The goal is to establish a positive relationship between your child and their dentist and show them that going to the dentist is comfortable and fun!  

Our staff loves working with kids, and knows exactly what to say to help ease their anxiety.  We explain all the normal dental procedures in a way that’s easy to understand, answer any questions that they have, and ensure that they are completely comfortable.
