The Dental Center of South Bend (Dentistry and Braces for Children and Teenagers)
1005 East LaSalle Avenue, South Bend, IN 46617

First Visit Overview

Our dentists are trained to take care of your child’s teeth from their first tooth through all stages of their baby teeth and permanent teeth.  Depending on the age, treatment preformed on the first visit can vary.  For infants and toddlers, the doctor will give a thorough exam of your child’s mouth and in most cases x-rays will not be done.  Older children will receive possible x-rays, a complete cleaning, and fluoride treatment. Parents are encouraged to speak to the doctors and staff and ask any questions.
