The First Visit

The Journey to Healthy Smiles Begins Here

When you trust Fort Mill Pediatric Dentistry as your child’s dental home, you can be confident that your child's oral health is in caring and qualified hands.

Children should establish a dental home by their first birthday. Whether this is your child’s first-ever visit to the dentist or his or her first visit to our practice, we believe that your child’s perception of the dentist is formed early and we want to be sure it is positive. 

Properly preparing your child to visit our office can be the difference between your child being fearless or fearful about his or her first, and future appointments with us.  Follow these simple steps to prepare your child for his or her first visit.

Child First Dental Visit

Our goal is to make every experience pleasant and educational for you and your child.

This was our first visit to the dentist with our son, so we didn’t know what to expect and didn’t know what our son would think or how he would react. We had the best experience with every staff member there. Our son was treated awesome and the staff were so committed to us and him and it being a comfortable, calm visit. Would never want to go anywhere else again. So pleased with the amazing staff and doctor.”

My son had two teeth pulled yesterday, and he and I both were nervous about it. Dr. Katie and her staff made it a very smooth, painless experience (for both of us!). My son didn’t even know that she had pulled his teeth! He’s had teeth pulled at a previous dentist, and he compared the terminology used by both offices. The previous dentist flat out said he was going to pull the teeth during the process while Dr. Katie said she was going to wiggle them. Words alone can make such a huge difference! Very pleased with the entire process!!”

Kelly F.

My kids look forward to seeing Dr. Katie and her staff. They are great with the kids. I couldn’t ask for a better provider. They are always up front with me about my costs that I may need to pay before they render services.”

Karin M.

As always, we were treated kindly, feel comfortable and always know costs ahead of time. No surprises.”
