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 forms. Parents of very young children will answer a number of questions relating to diet, homecare, fluoride exposure, and family history. Then, the doctor will meet with you and your child to do an exam and possibly a cleaning. Older children will typically get their teeth cleaned with a hygienist, get a fluoride treatment and take x-rays. The doctor will then meet with you and your child to discuss the X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
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.
