Patient Testimonials

  • "Northport Family Dental provides a very welcoming and professional staff with state of the art technology at their fingertips. On my very first visit as a new patient I was made to feel welcome and comfortable in the clean, pleasant and organized waiting area and treatment room."

  • "This was my first visit and I was immediately impressed by the facility and the professionalism of the staff. I was further impressed by the attention to detail, explanations and information given by the Doctor about the available treatments and my options. Dental treatment is not high on my list of things I look forward to but this was a rewarding and relatively painless experience."

  • "My family and I have been going to Northport Dental for the past 20 years and we love it. Dr. Rubin is awesome and his staff of hygienists, assistants and administrators are all so nice and caring and professional. Dr. Rubin's office is total state of the art - with all the latest high-tech equipment and comfortable atmosphere. We've recommended this office to many friends who are all very happy."

  • "The staff was terrific...very friendly and welcoming. Everything went like clockwork. I can't think of an experience with a dentist that was as reassuring. Doctor Rubin was really something. He was approachable and easy to converse with. The technology and expertise was something to behold."

When Should You Bring Your Child in for Their First Dental Visit?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), the dentist should see your child around his or her first birthday or within six months following the first tooth. 

At North Port Family Dental, our well-trained staff understands that your child may be uneasy in a pediatric dentistry environment, especially during the first visit. We will do everything we can to put your child at ease. We want your child to enjoy coming to the dentist, and our pediatric patients love it here!

What Happens During the First Visit

During your child’s first oral health check, our dentist will examine your child’s bite and pay special attention to the way his or her teeth are erupting. At this stage, the dentist will look for potential issues that may arise later and put together a proactive plan to help give your child the best smile and optimal oral health going forward. 

A dental cleaning may be performed during the initial visit. Sometimes, the dentist opts for a topical fluoride rinse to give your child a great head start in cavity prevention.

What Happens After the First Visit?

Following the exam and any treatments, the dentist will discuss any dental issues or concerns with you. Also, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. 

Our staff or the dentist will show you how to brush properly and care for your child’s teeth and explain how to soothe teething issues going forward.

We want to provide your child with the best dental care and help him or her develop healthy habits that will last into adulthood. You and your child’s comfort and ease at our dental office are an important part of great future outcomes.
