At your child’s first preventive care appointment, TCDC dental professionals will complete an oral examination, take x-rays, provide a dental cleaning and prepare a treatment plan. Each visit includes time to answer your
questions and provide information regarding your child’s dental health. If your child’s first appointment is to manage dental pain, our providers will conduct an exam and discuss treatment options with you. A
comprehensive preventive care appointment and any other needed services will be scheduled at another time.
