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 you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing you with 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 dental and medical history forms
- Take X-rays of the teeth and mouth (if needed)
- Clean and polish your child’s teeth, and check the teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis
After the checkup and teeth cleaning are complete, the doctor will meet with you and your child to discuss X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
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 that an appointment can last between 20 to 40 minutes.
