At Wright Smile Center of Woodbridge, we are devoted to helping you and establish and maintain the strong, healthy smile you have always wanted. Our friendly dentist realizes that one key to achieving healthy smiles is to help children establish good dental habits from an early age. For this reason, Dr. Rita D. Wright recommends scheduling your child’s first appointment at or around the eruption of their first tooth. While our team will provide a gentle cleaning and dental exam, one of the primary purposes of this visit is to familiarize your child with our dentist. During this first visit, our knowledgeable dentist may discuss:
- Oral hygiene practices to protect your child
- Fluoride treatment
- Oral habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting
- Proper nutrition and exercise
- Sports appliances
Dr. Rita D. Wright recommends that you and your family visit our team at least once every six months. During these visits, our talented team will work hard to detect and prevent any potential dental difficulties. These visits will consist of a dental cleaning and examination to ensure that your smile is as healthy and strong as possible. If you have any questions about pediatric dentistry in Woodbridge, Virginia, please contact us today. We are excited to offer quality care to you and your family.
