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, health and getting to know our practice. We allow children to begin their visits by picking out a new toothbrush from our vast, child-themed selection!
During your child’s first visit, we will review their dental and medical history forms, examine their teeth and possibly clean their teeth or take X-rays of their teeth. Then, the doctor will meet with you and your child to discuss everything, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have. If you have been referred to our office by another dentist, the first appointment will be to examine your child, get to know your child, and come up with a treatment plan. This is necessary before treatment can begin because every child is different and requires an individualized treatment plan.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your child’s first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form
- 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.
