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 take it slow. We will review their medical and dental history, count their teeth (checking for any cavities or issues), and attempt to clean and polish their teeth (if behavior allows). Depending on your child’s age, we may recommend x-rays of their teeth and mouth. One of our doctors will thoroughly go over your child’s dental findings and x-rays, answer any questions you may have, and come up with 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.
