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 after which our dental assistants will review proper brushing and flossing techniques, polish and floss your children's teeth and taken the appropriate X-rays needed. The Dentist will then greet you and your child, review X-rays taken, and perform a comprehensive oral exam. If dental cavities are found the Dentist will recommend dental treatment options and finalize a treatment plan for your child. If no cavities are found it is recommended to see your child every six months to maintain proper oral health.
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 40 to 60 minutes.
