We want to be certain your child’s first appointment is a positive experience in order to set the tone for future appointments.
During your first office visit, we ask all new patients are asked to complete our new patient form prior to their first appointment. Please download the form and bring it with you to the office for your first appointment.
At the initial visit, our pediatric dentist and staff will spend quality time getting to know you and your child. By explaining procedures and demonstrating the equipment in a fun and imaginative ways, children learn to be comfortable with dentistry. Parents are welcome to accompany children into the treatment area for the first visit, which begins with a complete review of your child’s medical and dental history.
We examine your child’s mouth, teeth, and gums, and evaluate any adverse habits, such as thumb-sucking. Dental x-rays are only taken if necessary, followed by oral hygiene instruction, a cleaning, and fluoride varnish application. If your child is reluctant for the dental cleaning or x-rays, we may recommend postponing that portion of the procedure for a later time, unless there is an urgent need or concern. At the conclusion of the comprehensive examination, any dental findings and treatment will be discussed.
We maintain strict standards and procedures to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information and ensure the correct use of information.
