What To Expect At Your Child’s First Visit

When visiting Aviation Pediatric Dental Associates, you can always expect a seamless and enjoyable experience for the entire family. As a local Memphis dentist, we love getting to meet new families and introducing little ones to a life of fun, informative dental care. Here’s what you can expect at your child’s first visit.

The Appointment Process



During your child’s first appointment, our dental assistant will perform a gentle, yet thorough preventive cleaning to promote a happy, healthy grin. If needed, x-rays may also be taken at this time.


Dr. Hobbs will carefully take a look at your child’s teeth and gums to ensure their oral health is on the right track and free of any dental issues.

Treatment Plan

After their preventive treatments, Dr. Hobbs will discuss your little one’s oral health and recommend a tailored treatment plan made just for their smile success.
