First Visit

Specialized Pediatric Dental Care For Children & Infants In Albuquerque, NM


At Meckler Pediatric Dentistry, we are committed to providing high quality pediatric dental care to children in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Bernalillo and the surrounding areas. Our dentist aims to provide a safe, comfortable and pleasant experience for all our patients, while encouraging happy and healthy smiles from a young age.

Your Child’s First Pediatric Dental Visit

Along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that a child's first dental visit be scheduled by his or her 1st birthday. It is very important to make the first visit as positive and enjoyable for the child as possible. We want your child to enjoy getting to know Dr. Meckler and his staff, and feel comfortable at all times. A positive first visit builds trust and will help put your child at ease during future dental visits. Let your child know that our doctor and staff will explain everything in detail and will answer any questions he or she has.

It’s important for parents to avoid making a big deal out of the visit and to refrain from using any words that could cause unnecessary fear, such as "needle" or "drill." Our team is experienced in dealing with children who have anxiety and can easily explain treatment procedures in a positive and pleasant manner to avoid any anxious or negative feelings toward dentistry.

We will record your child's dental and medical history, complete a comprehensive examination and discuss any findings with you. We will also review the importance of maintaining a good dental health program with you and your child to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
