Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and 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, ask you about any previous dental experiences, and discuss ways to ensure a positive and informative dental experience. The pediatric dentist or dental assistant may then clean and polish their teeth and take X-rays. The dentist will then discuss any findings or concerns, create an individualized treatment plan, and answer your questions.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your child’s first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form
- Your completed health history form
- Your insurance card
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association (ADA) and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommend 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 your first dental visit, please remember that it can last between 30-45 minutes.
