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, take digital x-rays, clean and polish your child’s teeth and apply a fluoride treatment. Then, the doctor will meet with you and your child to discuss the x-rays and do a complete oral exam, checking for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis. With this information the doctor will create an individual treatment plan for your child and answer any questions that you may have.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your child’s first appointment:
- Please complete your child’s online dental forms through emailed link prior to appointment. If unable to complete online forms, please arrive 15 minutes early so that you will have time to fill out New Patient Paperwork before your allotted appointment time.
- 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 30 and 60 minutes.
