Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and 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 son or daughter feel comfortable visiting our practice while we provide the best possible care.
Your first visit is all about your child: his or her comfort, happiness, and health
During your visit, one of our dental assistants will clean and polish your little one’s teeth and take X-rays. Next, one of the doctors will complete a comprehensive oral examination. This includes a complete review of the medical and dental history, all necessary X-rays and intraoral photos, a periodontal health evaluation, and examination of your youngster’s teeth and soft tissues.
Following this exam, the dentist will discuss the findings with you, and ensure you are comfortable with any recommended follow-up treatments, then your child will be scheduled according to his or her needs.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these 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 your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember an appointment can last between 20 and 40 minutes.
