Your Child’s First Dental Visit

The need for regular dental care starts as soon as teeth appear. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that parents take their child to the dentist as soon as the first tooth appears, usually between 6 and 12 months.  Are you looking for a pediatric dentist in Falls Church or surrounding areas (McLean, Vienna, Arlington, Tysons, Reston, Annandale)?

Dr Toothfairy Pediatric Dentistry is the perfect place to go! Our friendly staff are here to make sure your child’s first visit is special. We’ll make your child feel comfortable and safe while ensuring that they receive the best dental care possible. Our office has everything you need to make sure your child’s teeth stay healthy!

The first dental visit is important & special

It’s important because it helps us learn more about your child’s teeth so we can help them stay strong and healthy. It’s special because it’s your child’s opportunity to have a great first experience at the dentist–which is the best way to begin a lifetime of great oral health and hygiene. It also gives parents an opportunity to ask questions and learn how to care for their child’s teeth.

The benefits of oral health & hygiene

It is especially important to take care of a child’s teeth and to help them learn about good oral health and hygiene. That’s what we do at Dr Toothfairy. Regular visits to the pediatric dentist have many benefits, such as preventing cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and other dental problems. Regular checkups with a pediatric dentist can also help your child have healthy teeth for life!

How are Appointments Scheduled?

Please book online or call our office at (703) 677-8775 to schedule a dental appointment for your child. We try our best to accommodate you and your child’s schedule as much as possible. Please contact our office at least 48 hours in advance if you need to cancel or change your child’s appointment. This will allow us to accommodate another child who may be in need of urgent care. We reserve the right to discontinue dental care for those patients who repeatedly cancel or fail to keep appointments.

If your child is being accompanied by someone other than a parent, Virginia Law requires our office to obtain legal consent to treat your child. A parent or legal guardian must provide the necessary legal consent for treatment or provide a document giving us permission to treat.


If your child is in discomfort during regular office hours, we will try to see him or her immediately. If an emergency should occur after office hours, call our office to get the best way to reach Dr. Lara who will return your call as soon as possible. We will make every attempt to make the child comfortable and provide treatment as soon as possible.
