Jennifer Sokolosky DMD
A Great Dentist

We will help you achieve and maintain a healthy, bright smile you can be proud of.

I found the best and caring dentist, she has all the patience and calmness to treat you well and make you comfortable. I don't like to go to the dentist if I can avoid it, but she helps my attitude to dentist to be changed. Finding the right one who is caring is important. So don't hesitate to visit Dr. Sokolosky. Thanks. - Azeb H.

When should my child first see the dentist?

 family dentistry | dentist | ellicott city mdWe agree with the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry that you bring your child to see Dr. Sokolosky around age one. At this time, their baby teeth are starting to appear, and we can begin monitoring their dental development.

Of course, when your child’s only a year old, we’re not going to try to do any complicated exams or treatments. Every positive experience your child has with us is a step toward developing a good attitude about dental care. If they feel good about seeing the dentist now, chances are that dental visits won’t cause them a lot of anxiety as an adult.

Their First Visit

During the first visit, we’ll take time to show your little all the interesting equipment and introduce them to our caring staff. We’ll count their teeth and let them take a little ride in the dental chair.

If we feel that your child’s comfortable with us, we’ll take a look at their teeth to see if there are any signs of obvious problems. Of course, you are welcome to stay with your child throughout their appointment.

Our team loves treating kids, and we know exactly what they need to have a good experience with us. Please give our Ellicott City dental office a call to arrange your child’s exciting first dental visit!
