First Pediatric Dental Visit

A child’s first dental visit is a monumental time in their life. After all, the very first visit is what sets the foundation for his or her future oral health. Dr. Lis Bradley, DDS is here to help parents instill proper oral care habits in their child from infancy to teenage years. Doing so will prevent periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other dental diseases.

During your child’s first visit, Dr. Lis Bradley, DDS will examine his or her mouth, teeth and gums, as well as evaluate adverse habits such as thumb sucking. She will also check to see if your child needs fluoride treatment and teach him or her all about cleaning their teeth and keeping their gums healthy. If your child has well surpassed the age of one, you will need to limit their sugar intake as a method of cavity prevention. At our office, we are most concerned with all aspects of preventive care and can offer dental sealants as a way to protect your child’s teeth. Once the oral exam is complete and you are satisfied with your experience, we will suggest a schedule for regular dental visits.

If you have questions or concerns about pediatric dentistry, please give us a call. To learn about the services we provide at the practice, visit for more information. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Lis Bradley, DDS in Brentwood, TN, call 615-778-0810.
