Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to children’s needs and it is our goal to make your child feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about your child — his or her comfort, happiness, and health.
During your child’s first visit, we will review their dental and medical history forms, and take x-rays of their teeth and mouth. One of our hygienists will clean and polish their teeth, checking for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis. Then, the doctor will meet with you and your child to discuss the x-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
Bring your smile, but also remember these things ahead of your child’s first appointment:
- Please arrive 10 - 15 minutes early to complete new patient information forms
- Bring your insurance card
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember that an appointment can last between 20 and 40 minutes.
