Your Childs First Visit

At Gold River Pediatric Dentistry, we follow the guidelines stipulated by the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) that children should see a dentist within six months of the eruption of their first tooth, or by their 1-year birthday.

During your child’s first dental visit, it is paramount that he/she has a pleasant experience. We want you and your child to feel comfortable and relaxed at our office.



Dr. Pivnik will examine your baby’s new teeth and mouth to determine whether proper hygiene has been established and also check for potential issues.

As a parent, you will have the opportunity learn about how to care for your baby’s teeth and mouth, and also get related questions and concerns addressed by Dr. Pivnik.



Regular dental visits are important for your child

After the initial visit and dental check-up, we will recommend regular six-month appointments for your child's preventative oral care. We strive to be your child's "dental home." The place where he/she receives preventative, comprehensive and restorative dental care when necessary. Always, in a fear-free and pleasant environment. We hope to build a good relationship with your children. Help them develop proper oral care habits, not only through their childhood and adolescent years, but their lifetime.
