A lifetime of smiles starts with a good foundation
Give your kids a great start building good oral hygiene habits and monitor their progress as they grow into their beautiful smiles. We understand how challenging and rewarding family care can be and kids need extra special consideration. Having a healthy smile is such an important part of childhood, let’s get them started on the right path with guidance that’s personalized for their needs.
Getting ready for your first appointment
Feel free to talk to your child about the upcoming trip to the dentist. The main purpose of your child’s first visit is to relax, have some fun, and start building a positive relationship with the dentist. Sometimes, not knowing what to expect can make people feel a little nervous. Here’s what your child can expect during their first appointment:
Talk and Listen
We will talk to you and your child, explain what we’re going to do and why and familiarize your child with some of the tools we use. We speak in kid-friendly language and explain any lingo so they can feel as comfortable and assured as possible. See! We’re not so scary after all.
We will gently examine your child’s gums, tongue, teeth and overall health. Our exam will uncover any areas of concern or tricky spots that may need some extra attention at home. We will provide you with personalized guidance and make a note to pay special attention to those spots during the next appointment.
We might ask your child to show us how they brush their teeth and then give them gentle instructions on how to improve brushing their teeth at home. We would love to answer any questions you or your child have about dental health.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

What our clients have to say
Above and Beyond Experience
I have been with Dr Labato since 3 years now when we moved to Las Vegas. Always a pleasure to visit his clinic. All his associates are so friendly and professional. They exercised a great level of precautions during the pandemic which made me feel very comfortable. They follow high standards and offer the best service for which I always praise them for.
This has to be the best doctor in the country! I have been in pain for over a year with a sorry doctor who said he couldn't fix my problem after he performed the work. Dr. Lobato not only got my teeth back to a healthy condition but he just completed the do-over and I feel amazing. I believe the problem was also causing my routine headaches. His professionalism and obvious love for people is exuberated within his entire office environment. Of course I was fearful that I would experience the same pain, however, I feel great!!
